Ground cherries

Ground Cherries

Sweet Onions

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Storage: Whole dry bulb onions should be kept in a cool, dry, dark place with plenty of air movement. Do not store onions in plastic! Lack of ventilation will reduce their storage life. Refrigeration is only necessary when trying to extend the shelf life of sweet or mild onion varieties with high water content, but be sure to use a low humidity setting, they must be kept dry.

Recipe: Roasted Parmesan Creamed Onions, Upside Down Sweet Onion Cornbread, Caramelized Onion and Bacon Skillet Dip

 

Stayman Winesap Apples

Grower: Kistaco Farm

Store: Refrigerate apples in the crisper in a plastic bag with holes in it. Use up old or damaged apples and store apples separately as the ethylene gas they produce can help speed up the decay process of other fruits and vegetables.

Recipe: Apple-Cranberry Cobbler, Butternut Squash, Apple and Sage Soup, Apple Crisp Shortbread Bars

 

Sage

Grower: Gid’s Produce

Store: To store, simply wrap the sage leaves in paper towels and put them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Make sure to use the leaves within four to five days. Fresh leaves that are covered in olive oil can be stored for much longer in the refrigerator, about three weeks.

Recipe: Healthy Pumpkin Biscuits with Sage, Honey-Roasted Cauliflower with Pine Nuts and Crispy Sage, Polenta with Goat Cheese and Fresh Sage, Savory Sage Shortbread Cookies

 

Green Tomatoes

Grower: Clarion River Organics (Hidden Valley Farm)**

Store: Keep green tomatoes in a cool, dark place but don’t refrigerate them. Use within two weeks. To ripen, place tomatoes in a box in a single layer with a layer of newspaper on top, and then another layer of tomatoes and leave until ripe.

Recipe: Sweet Green Tomato Cornmeal Muffins, Green Tomato Pie, Green Tomato Casserole

 

Green and Lacinato Kale

Grower: Clarion River Organics (Hidden Valley Farm)** and Kistaco Farm

Store: Wrap the bunch in a paper towel and store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for 7-10 days. Or you can blanch and freeze the kale leaves for future use.
