Happy veggie share day! Lots of variety this week, but not to fret, there’s also still a good amount of lettuce for you salad-lovers. Don’t forget to check out more info, and recipe ideas, from the farm. All the veggies for this week are best stored in an airtight (plastic) bag in the refrigerator, but beets should be stored separately from the greens.
The veggie pickup for Thursday, July 5th will be at Sunnyside Community Services from 5-8pm. It’s also pickup for Lewis Waite Farm orders.
Beets – Separate the green tops from the roots and eat them both! Beets pair well with citrus, walnuts and soft cheeses. The tops can be sautéed with olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Use within 5 days.
Mustard Greens Salad Mix – This one’s back by popular demand, and we’re definitely excited to have more. Use within 5 days.
Green or Purple Kohlrabi – A very versatile veggie–but don’t forget to peel it first. Try it as a slaw, sliced in salads, eaten whole, braised, roasted, grilled… Use within a week.
Green Kale – Could this leafy green be any more healthy? Probably not. If you’re not sure how else to eat it, try one of the recipe links. Use within a week..
Basil – Who’s ready for a fresh batch of pesto? Use within 3 days.
Zucchini – This week you’ll see yellow and green varieties–they’ll make great zoodles for your pesto. Use within a week.
Scallion – Try these grilled and sliced into a salad. Fun fact: you can put the bottoms in a glass of water and they’ll regrow the green tops. Use within a week.
Fennel – This is your last week to enjoy fennel–and if you haven’t already tried it, the caramelized fennel recipe from last week is amazing. When to use: Within a week.
Please note that any boxes not picked up by 8pm will be donated to SCS, and items are subject to change.
