Green Cabbage

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Store: Keep it wrapped. Wrapping cabbage in plastic and storing it in the crisper section of your refrigerator limits its exposure to air flow, and thus reduces respiration and slows down spoilage. Just as importantly, plastic wrap keeps external moisture out, preventing mold and rot, while helping the cabbage to maintain its internal (cellular) moisture—without which, the cabbage leaves lose their firmness and begin to wilt.

Recipe: Balsamic & Honey Roasted Cabbage SteaksThai Cabbage Salad, Vegan Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

 

Turnips

Grower: Clarion Rive Organics

Store: Refrigerate the roots unwashed in a plastic bag. They should keep for anywhere from1 week to 2 weeks in the fridge, depending on your refrigerator. To freeze, wash, peel, slice and place in pot of water that just covers them.

 

Recipe: Turnip FriesMashed Turnips, Herb Roasted Turnip and Sweet Potato Skillet

 

 

Sage

Grower: Crighton Farm

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: Roasted Potatoes with Sage and Garlic, Sage and Pumpkin Biscuits, Sage and Walnut Pesto

 

 

Pastured Eggs

Grower: Jaroskinski/Keim Farm

Store: Eggs should not be stored on the refrigerator door, but in the main body of the refrigerator to ensure that they keep a consistent and cool temperature.

Recipe: Scrambled Egg MuffinsBreakfast Tostada, Mexican Frittata

 

 

 

Hydroponic Lettuce

Grower: Harmony Grove Farm

Store: Leave the heads intact and unwashed until you use them. Then, place them in the crisper drawer in your fridge with some paper towels.They’ll absorb any excess moisture, so your lettuce doesn’t spoil prematurely.  Lettuce bruises easily, so be careful not to shove other foods up against it. Using a storage container is better than a bag, which can end up squished against other items.

 

 

Pea Shoots

Grower: Harmony Grove Farm

Store: Use your pea shoots quickly — within a day or two. Wrap them in a paper towel and place them in an open plastic bag (3) in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to use them, gently wash and discard any large stems.

 

Recipe: Garlic Pea ShootsLemon Risotto with Pea ShootsPea Shoot Salad

 

Idared Apples

Grower: Kistaco Farm

Store:  Keep them cool. The ideal storage temperature is 30 to 35 degrees F. with 90 to 95 percent relative humidity. If you don’t have a lot of apples, the refrigerator is a good option. Place them in the crisper drawer in a plastic bag with holes in it or cover the apples with a damp paper towel.

Recipe: Cinnamon Apple Chips

 

 

Sweet Potatoes

Grower: Riverbend Acres

Store: Avoid storing sweet potatoes in the refrigerator, which will produce a hard center and unpleasant taste. Instead, store your sweet potatoes in a cool, dry, well ventilated container. For best results, store them in a basement or root cellar away from strong heat sources. Your sweet potatoes can store for up to two weeks if stored properly.

Recipe: Sweet Potato CasseroleSweet Potato Fritters, Sweet Potato Fries

 

 

Rutabagas

Grower: Tuscarora Organics Cooperative

Store: Rutabagas will keep for months in a cool storage place. They store well in plastic bags in a refrigerator or cold cellar. Keep rutabagas away from raw meat and meat juices to prevent cross contamination. Before peeling, wash rutabagas using cool or slightly warm water and a vegetable brush.

Recipe: Roasted Rutabaga with Maple Syrup and Thyme, Apple Rutabaga Soup, Baked Garlic & Herb Shoestring Rutabagas

 

 

Tomato Juice

Grower: Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance

Store: Store in your pantry for 2 years!

Recipes: Slow Cooker Pumpkin and Turkey Chili, Tomato Bread, Tomato Juice Mac and Cheese

 

 

 

 

Rolled Oats

Grower: Weatherbury Farm

Store: Store in a cool place for several months.  Best when stored in refrigerator.

Recipe: Rolled Oats, Peanut Butter Oat Bars, Apple Crisp

Gouda GoldGouda Gold – This cheese may soften due to the high temperatures expected on Wednesday. However, if you put it in the refrigerator, it will firm up. 

Grower: Hidden Hills Dairy

Store: Keep refrigerated.

Notes from the farmer: This cheese is made only in the summer months when the cows are on pasture to capture the natural golden color of the grass. Aged 5-8 months, this cheese works equally well on a cheese tray, baked in a casserole or paired with fruit. As “gouda” as it gets!
