Theme: Lemme Tell You About This Celery
Celery grown by small farms isn't the same thing as the stuff of grocery stores. This celery's got a much more intense flavor and may be tougher, making it ideal for cooking. Grill, marinate, braise, broil, stir-fry, or make into a soup. We love celery noodles: use a vegetable peeler or paring knife to shave celery into thins trips, then steam sauté (to steam sauté, throw just-washed veggies into a hot pan, crank the heat, lid, and let the  water wilt the veggies a little. After 3 minutes, de-lid, stir, then sauté as normal) and add tomato sauce and Parmesan.

Shiro Plums A juicy, medium size greenish-yellow plum with a mildly sweet flavor. Plums are high in antioxidants, and vitamins A, B1, B2 and C. Try honey-roasting them with honey, brow sugar, and butter. Kleinskill Fruit Farm (FAM)
Broccoli A staple that can easily be played up. For a quick dish, sautee with soy sauce, oil, garlic and almonds. We like roasting broccoli with a few chiles and a bit of lemon…yum. Store unwashed broccoli in a plastic bag...you should keep it dry. How to cook broccoliShaul Farm (FAM)

Yellow Beets Mildly sweet compared to its red sibling. Roasting caramelizes the beet and tastes divine.

Storage
  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.
  • Pasta people! Keep it in the fridge 4-5 days or freeze it.
  • Plums & peaches: a day or two to ripen in the pantry, then into the fridge for MAX 5 days. To speed 'em up keep them in a paper bag.  Works for pretty much all fruit.
  • Beets & radishes should be good for up to two weeks. 
  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.

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.
