Pick-up June 20th: Vegetables

Yay for leafy greens tomorrow!

Get excited for this next box of veggies, ready and waiting for you from 5-8pm at Sunnyside Community Services. Remember if you haven’t signed up for your volunteer shifts yet, please do so.

Here’s the vegetables for tomorrow. (Unless noted, store in an airtight container in the fridge.)

Spinach –  Try them sautéed with a little butter, salt and pepper. Use within 4 days.

Collards – If you’re not into cooking these, try them in place of a traditional lettuce wrap. Use within 5 days.

Cilantro – To keep it from drooping, try standing them up in a container with water, like you would flowers. Use within 3 days.

Boston (Butter) Lettuce – This is our last week before moving to romaine–this week coming in red and green! Use within a week.

Red Radishes – If they’re too spicy raw, try roasting them. Use within 5 days, with tops separated from root.

Japanese Salad Turnips – Delicious raw, and no need to peel–try dipped in hummus or with a little salt. The greens can be roasted. Use within 5 days, with tops separated from root.

As a reminder:

  • Any items not picked up by 8pm will be donated to SCS.
