It's an easy process that allows you to savor all this good stuff. All you'll need is vinegar, some herbs & spices, and jars. Here's how to pickle strawberries, chard stems, radishes, and cucumbers.

  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.
  • Tip 2: A dull knife conspires against you and slows you down. A sharp knife makes your food taste better (and look better, too). NY Times
  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.

Bok Choy can be eaten raw, roasted, boiled, steamed, stir-fried, microwaved, or deep-fried. The entire head can be eaten. To prepare, separate the leaves from the stalks, then rinse well and drain. Shred or cut across the leaves and cut the stalks into small slices along the diagonal. Great with a bit of garlic, ginger or soy sauce. Remember—you can eat the stalks raw, too! Running Creek Farm (OG)

English Shelling Peas After you shell these peas, do not eat the shells! They're too tough to eat, so we like to save them for stock instead. We consider it a travesty to eat these anyway but raw. If you feel you must cook them, put in boiling water for a couple minutes. Peas and mint pair well together. Melt butter, then mix in finely chopped mint and add to peas. Cassaday Farm (FAM) 
Storage: A few days in the fridge. Do not shell/wash until ready to use.

Lettuce Put fresh salads on your table as often as you can. For a more filling and flavorful boost add roasted nuts, died cranberries, roasted sunflower seeds, shaved parmesan, or chick peas. Pleasant Valley Farm (OG)

GRILLED NAAN WITH GARLIC SCAPE CHUTNEY
Serves: 10
INGREDIENTS
  • Dough: (OR BUY READY TO GO NAAN POCKETS)
  • 5-1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour; more as needed (optional: sub 1 Cup whole wheat)
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 T kosher salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup olive oil and more for brushing.
  • 1½ C water
  • Garlic Scape Chutney:
  • ¾ cup chopped garlic scapes, tops removed (or sub Italian parsley or cilantro packed w/ 2 cloves garlic)
  • ½ cup fresh mint packed
  • 1 cup peas
  • ½ cup roasted or smoked almonds
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ jalapeño or Serrano pepper- for a little kick (optional)
  • 1 T lime juice ⅓ C olive oil.
  • Olive oil or Melted butter for brushing
  • 1 C Melty cheese- such as mozzarella, queso fresco, or paneer
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Make the dough:
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook. In a medium bowl, whisk the yogurt, egg and add 1-1/2 cups of lukewarm water and the oil. Mix. Pour the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture and mix on low speed until a soft, sticky dough starts to clump around the hook, about 5 minutes. If the dough seems too wet, add more flour, 1 tsp. at a time. Line a baking sheet with parchment and dust lightly with flour. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into 10 equal pieces. Form each piece into a ball and arrange them on the baking sheet. Lightly brush the dough with oil, cover with plastic, and let sit 1 hour before shaping.
  3. Make the chutney:
  4. Place all the chutney ingredients in a food processor and pulse until uniformly granular.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll a dough ball into a 5-inch circle. Spread 1 T of the chutney in the center, leaving a ½-inch border. Sprinkle 1 T of cheese over the chutney. Gather the border to form a pouch (see picture) pinching it to seal in the filling. Turn the pouch pinched side down and, using very light pressure, roll it into a 6-inch circle. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Layer rolled out naan with parchment until ready to grill.
  6. Prepare a medium charcoal or gas grill fire and wipe grates with a lightly oiled paper towel. Grill the breads in batches pinched side down, covered, until they puff up and the undersides brown lightly in places, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn over and cook the other side, covered, until grill marks form and the breads are cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Just before taking them off the grill, turn the breads pinched side down and brush lightly with butter or olive oil. Serve warm.
  7. These are best, right off the grill but leftovers can be refrigerated and saved for another time. Just place them in a toaster or warm oven before serving.
Swiss Chard Cooked chard is a great stand-in for spinach. The stems can be steamed or grilled like asparagus. While Swiss Chard is naturally bitter, cooking mellows the flavor. Unless the stems are tender, remove them and just prepare the leaves. You can prepare chard in a jiff by sautéing it in olive oil with some garlic—toss in some chili for a little zip. Barber Farm (OG)
Storage: Up to a week in the fridge.
