Theme: Beans are back.   Did you know most dietary guidelines recommend that American triple their consumptions of beans?  In a U.S. Department of Agriculture study, researchers measured the antioxidant capacities of more than 100 common foods. Three types of beans made the top four: small red beans, red kidney beans, and pinto beans.

The Menu is starting to change.  Perhaps more than any time of year,  weather determines the Field Goods menu.  What to expect in the spring...
  • Phasing out of the frozen product
  • More beans
  • Radishes and baby turnips
  • Introducing grains -- look for Oatmeal in May
  • More field grown high-tunnel/greenhouse greens
  • Forage and wild crops -- dandelions, fiddleheads, ramps
  • Greenhouse tomatoes
  • Asparagus 
  • Canola and Sunflower oil
  • Over-winter crops -- leeks, spinach, rabe --- these are crops that are protected from the cold and left in the ground over the winter.
If you are on INDEFINITE hold in anticipation of the spring, please consider  jumping back in as soon as possible (you can place yourself on weekly holds).  This will help us estimate demand at this tricky time of year.

  • 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.
  • Remember to wash.

Storage: Pop in the freezer.
Creamed Corn
Corn Chowder  (super simple - frozen peppers are a great addition)
 

Frozen Edamame The appetizer of choice in most Japanese restaurants, edamame is an immature soybean for mature eaters though kids & immature adults love 'em as well! To prepare: boil water with salt, add the edamame (no peeling or cutting necessary), cook for 5-6 minutes & strain. You can either serve with the pods or peel and pop out the beans to add to salads, pasta, etc. Markristo Farm (CO)

Storage: Pop in the freezer.

STANDARD & FAMILY ONLY Asian Pear Asian pears look very similar to apples and have a golden skin with white flesh. While they look similar to large apples, they taste like pears! They are a fruit delicacy and go for over $3 each. They are best raw and served with cheese or sliced on top of a salad. Since they are so big you may want to cut in half, wrap in plastic wrap, and save for tomorrow -- they sill taste great and don't turn brown.  Evergreen Farm (OG)

Storage: Lasts months in the fridge

Onion
Yellow Onion from the Black Dirt Region of Orange County, NY The flavonoids in onion tend to be more concentrated in the outer layers of the flesh. To maximize your health benefits, peel off as little of the fleshy, edible portion as possible when removing the onion’s outermost paper layer. Minkus Family Farm (FAM)

Caramelized Onions
Dandelion Greens are our first field grown green of the season but do not mistake them for your backyard weed. These are an heirloom variety brought over from Italy 80 years ago (on purpose!).  They remind us of arugula.  Add the to any dish for a tangy taste. Petronglo Farm (OG)

Dandelion Juice -- This sound gross, and maybe it is, but boy does it make green good-for-what-ails-ya drink.
Dandelion Greens w/ a Kick
Wilted Dandelion Greens
Sauteed Dandelion Leaves

Pinto Beans They are pre-cooked and NOT dried. These are so tasty all you need to do is toss with olive oil, garlic and add some chopped dandelion greens. Combine the creamy pink texture of pinto beans with a whole grain such as brown rice and you have a virtually fat-free high quality protein meal. Popular in Tex-Mex cuisine. Vermont Bean Crafters (CO)

Storage: Toss in the freezer.
Pinto Bean Stew (slow-cooker!!)
