Your weekly update on what's cookin' in your Field Goods bag. Overview of contents, plus recipe suggestions for your perusing pleasure. 
Theme: Green Beans are Supreme
We love Markristo's Certified Organic green beans because they are too easy. These cook in under 10 minutes. Add lemon, garlic and butter. Done. It's important to not wash until you're ready to use them. You can always freeze green beans if you're not going to cook them this week—blanch for 3 minutes, plunge in cold water for 3 minutes, drain, drop in a plastic bag and in the freezer they go. This slow cooker recipe looks mighty fine: Green beans and salt pork (the salt pork and veggies must cancel each other out.)

Green Beans Kid-friendly! Don't be afraid to eat these beans raw as a crunchy snack, or freeze them for enjoyment post-harvest. Markristo Farm (CO)
 
Salad Mix A beautiful mix of Persian cress, Upland Cress, and Watercress. Common Hands (OG),  plus pea shoots and baby kale, collard, and mustard greens. Ironwood Farm (OG) 


 
Blue and Green Curly Kale Easy to cook and incredibly healthy. For a quick dish, cook kale for a minute in a pot of boiling water. Drain, squeeze out excess water, and sauté with olive oil and garlic for just a couple minutes. Remember to try kale chips if you haven't yet. Just strip the leaves off the stems, place in a plastic bag with a little oil and soy sauce mixture (by little we mean enough to lightly coat—worse thing you can do is add too much), shake the bag, and place in the oven at 280 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Rogielo & Rogielo Farm (IPM)
Gala Apples Crisp and delicious, cooked or raw—you can't go wrong with Galas. Bob "doesn't pick 'em off the tree until they taste like an apple," which is why these apples are and have been the best we've ever had. EVERYBODY, THIS IS THE LAST PICK YOUR OWN WEEK AT Fix Brothers Farm (IPM)
Rapini/ Broccoli Rabe Did you know that broccoli rabe is more closely related to turnips than broccoli? It is NOT supposed to have big flower heads like broccoli. To prepare, trim the stems, toss with garlic & olive oil, add a splash of liquid, and sauté for a few minutes (you do not need to peel the stems). Toss with pasta & some good Parmesan cheese or with rice & soy sauce. Farm at Miller's Crossing (CO)

Braised Broccoli Rabe:
Bring salted water to boil.
Add a bunch of broccoli rabe.
Boil 2 minutes.
Drain and squeeze moisture out of the broccoli rabe.
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Add chopped garlic (as much as little as you like).
Add broccoli rabe and cook for about 4 minutes.
Done.
Fennel Similar in flavor to anise, fennel is crunchy and slightly sweet. Popular in Mediterranean cuisine, though often associated with Italian and Indian cooking. Bluestar Farm (OG) 
Tomatoes Slice and plump up your salads with these, or chop and create a pasta dish with added garlic, basil, mozzarella cheese and olive oil. Migliorelli Farm (IPM)
Heirloom Radish Medley...Get Radishical Crunchy and peppery! Perfect with a dab of butter and a sprinkle of salt for a snack. Peeling is not necessary for these. You can eat them raw or saute them. You'll be getting any of the following: D'Avignon, Rover, Ping Pong, and Amethyst. The greens make a spicy addition to salads. Markristo Farm (CO)

5 Essential Dressings 

Storage
  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.
  • Pasta people! Keep it in the fridge 4-5 days or freeze it.
  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.
  • Leave tomatoes in the pantry. 
  • Radishes will last longer if you remove the greens.

Key for growing methods:
  • CO - Certified Organic
  • OG - Organically Grown (farm uses organic methods but does not have Certification).
  • IPM - Integrated Pest Management (methods used to reduce the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers)
  • FAM - Family farm (farm often uses organic and IPM methods but may also use chemical fertilizers and pesticides. As a general rule small farms use far fewer chemicals than large industrialized operations).
  • Non-GMO - None of our products are GMO.
