Very Important Parsnips. One of our customers told us that they just don't know what to do with parsnips. HELLO! Peel them like carrots, cut them up and roast in the oven with just a bit of olive oil. TOO EASY. They are sweet and fabulous...promise. Their delicious nutty flavor is also ideal for roasts, stews and soups. Peeled and pared parsnips brown when exposed to air, so use right away or cover in lemon juice to slow the oxidation process. We love parsnip puree spread onto large lettuce leaves for a snack.

P.S. Herbed Cheeseville sale!!!!! It's delicious when spread on a cracker or baguette. Heck, we even put it on our baked potatoes.

  • 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.



 
Red Cabbage Bright and crisp while raw, this cruciferous vegetable mellows when cooked. A little butter and salt over gently cooked cabbage goes a long way and pairs well with roasted meats. Raw cabbage is great for a kicker winter salad— add shredded cabbage to a bowl of hearty greens, then toss in salty cheese, crunchy nuts, and cranberries or roasted beets. Barber Farm (OG)
Storage: Fridge for a couple weeks. To freeze, quickly blanch, dry, & store in airtight bag.

Try braising with apples, searing in a hot pan for five minutes, or quick-cooking in a stir-fry. 
White Potatoes You know 'em. You love 'em. Barber Farm (OG) 
Storage: Paper bag in the pantry for a couple weeks. If cool & dark, they can last 2-3 months.
Shallots A member of the allium family, shallots are milder than onions or garlic. When slowly cooked, shallots become sweet. Toss with oil and salt, then cook in a warm oven until they soften. Shallots also taste great raw, especially in salad dressings. Try whisking together minced shallots, lemon juice, salt & pepper and olive oil to top a kale salad. Fledging Crow Farm (OG)
Storage: Cool pantry or fridge for a month. To freeze, peel & chop, store in airtight container.
Parsnips are possibly the best part of winter. The colder it gets, the more sugars they produce while growing, so the sweeter they get. Migliorelli Farm (IPM)
Storage: Up to a month in the fridge. 
Honeycrisp Apples are everybody's favorite apple. Sweet, firm, & tart (perfect for eating raw). Dressel Farm (IPM)
Storage: Few days in the pantry OR a few weeks in the fridge.
Basil from Continental Organics (OG)
Storage: Trim ends & place in a glass w/ 1" of water, cover w/ loose fitting bag & leave in pantry. Replace water when cloudy. Lasts up to 2 weeks.
Watermelon Radish The most beautiful of all radishes. Crisp, firm flesh with a slight peppery taste and almond-sweet notes. Makes great radish chips.  Hepworth Farms (CO) & Common Hands (OG)
Storage: Fridge up to 2 weeks.
Greenhouse Tomatoes (STANDARD & FAMILY ONLY) Enjoy them raw in salad or slice and toss on top of a pizza. Bruschetta makes a fantastic snack. Toss together tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, and garlic in a bowl. Mix in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Serve on toasted bread slices. Sprinkle with arugula! Running Creek Farm (OG)
Storage: 1-5 days until ripe in pantry, then fridge for 3 days. You can freeze them, but thawed tomatoes can only be used in cooked dishes.
