Sweet Potatoes

Grower: River View Dairy (OG)

Store: If stored in cool dark area, sweet potatoes will last about 1 month. Store sweet potatoes in a loosely covered bag to allow for air circulation. Do not refrigerate raw sweet potatoes, as doing so can alter their taste and flavor during cooking.

Recipe: Caramelized Sweet Potato & Apple Hash Browns, Skinny Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, Carnitas Sweet Potato Hash with Green Sriracha

Carrots

Grower: River View Dairy (OG)

Store: Remove carrot greens from the carrots and store in a bag in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator.

Recipe: Easy Thai Carrot Soup, Vegan Carrot Hot Dogs, Classic Carrot Salad

Garlic

Grower: Blue Goose Farm (CNG)

Store: Garlic bulbs can be kept in a mesh or wire basket, a small bowl with ventilation holes or even a paper bag. Do not store fresh garlic bulbs in plastic bags or sealed containers. This can cause mold and sprouting.

Recipe: Creamy Garlic Parmesan Mushrooms, Easy Cauliflower Rice with Garlic, Garlic Herb Butternut Squash

Gourmet Salad Mix

Grower: Grow Pittsburgh

Store: Line a plastic storage container with paper towels, dump the lettuce in an even layer on top, and cover it with another layer of paper towels before locking down the lid. Leave some space so the lettuce isn’t jam packed.

Recipe: Vegan Green Goddess Dressing, The Best Balsamic Vinaigrette, Mixed Greens with Pears, Walnuts & Dried Cranberries

Hot Pepper Medley

Grower: Crighton Farm

Store: Store unwashed (or washed and dried) peppers in the refrigerator in a loosely closed plastic bag. Moisture is a pepper’s enemy and hastens spoiling. For peak flavor and nutrition, use within a week.

Recipe: Super Easy Hot Pepper Jelly, How to Make Hot Pepper Chili Oil, Hot and Sweet Triple Pepper Pizza

Anjou or Bosc Pears

Grower: Dawson’s Orchard

Store: Store at room temperature until ripe — to hasten ripening, place pears in a paper bag at room temperature. Once ripe, place pears in a plastic bag and refrigerate.

Recipe: Roasted Beet, Pear & Walnut Salad, Easy Pear Butter, Brown Butter Upside-Down Pear Cake

 

sweetcarmenCarmen Peppers

Grower: Weeping Willow Farm

Store: Store unwashed (or washed and dried) peppers in the refrigerator in a loosely closed plastic bag. Moisture is a pepper’s enemy and hastens spoiling. For peak flavor and nutrition, use within a week.

Recipe: Sweet Pepper Jelly, Easy Pepper Steak, Crockpot Sweet Chili Pineapple Chicken

Blue Potatoes

Grower: Clarion River Organics (OG)

Store: New potatoes can be stored at room temperature, but because they have not been cured, they won’t last as long as regular potatoes — several days instead of several weeks. When refrigerated, the starch will begin to convert to sugar, so if they’re chilled for very long they’ll taste sweet.

Recipe: Kielbasa, Pepper, Onion, and Potato Hash, Southwest Roasted Potato Salad, Roasted Potato Cups with Loaded Guacamole

bokchoy

Bok Choy

Grower: Blackberry Meadows (OG)

Store: Store your bok choy in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator — unwashed and in a perforated plastic bag. When you do use it, remember that its cluster of stalks hides dirt, so wash it well!

Recipe: Udon Soup with Bok Choy and Poached Eggs, Shanghai Bok Choy, Vegetarian Pho
