Thank you for your donations to Sandy relief!
Thanks to all who donated food to for Hurricane Sandy Relief last week—it was a great success. Thanks, as well, to CSA member Melissa who had the idea, and put that idea into action! Our partners, Sunnyside Cares, coordinated a very much appreciated food drop-off in the Rockaways. Their efforts continue this week with a fundraiser event, called The RUSH, on Sunday.

Russet Potatoes

Store in a cool, humid (but not wet) location. Store in burlap, brown paper, or perforated plastic bags away from light, in the coolest, non-refrigerated, and well-ventilated part of the house. Don’t store onions and potatoes together

Cooking tips:
Russets are ideal for baking or mashing.
Another foolproof way to enjoy is to slice thinly and place on baking sheet lined with tin foil, a bit of oil and salt. Bake at 450 until browned until both sides are browned.
If you want to get fancy, make a dip by mixing some mayo with scallions or Cholula or Sriracha hot sauce.
