Theme: Farm Fresh
Last week we really gave you the scoop on what to do with your greens. This week, we're realizing we didn't dish on HOW you get your greens. You may have noticed these greens are a little damp in your bag. That's because they're harvested the morning of packing!! That morning, the farmer harvests the greens and dunks 'em in cold water to take the field heat out of them, and then they deliver the greens right to us. Be sure to store your greens wrapped in a paper towel to absorb some of that moisture - and, of course, keep in the crisper. (Eat your greens with every meal.)

Spinach is best when eaten raw or lightly braised. To braise, toss with hot oil and garlic for a few minutes and then add splash of liquid. We like to add Parmesan cheese. If you choose to steam the spinach, wash and steam for just 5-10 minutes. This preparation method preserves nutrient content. Rogielo & Rogielo Farm (IPM)
Storage: Up to a week in the crisper.
Spinach and Green Garlic Soup
Strawberry Spinach Salad
Spinach with Nutmeg and Lemon
Garlic Sautéed Spinach
Sugar Snap Peas are all about texture, sweetness and crunch. They don’t take long to cook—1 to 2 minutes max. Resist overcooking—you’ll end up with sad, limp peas. Cut your snaps in thirds crosswise, or halve lengthwise on a long diagonal. Cut them before or after steaming. If boiling, cut them afterwards or else the tumbling action of boiling water will free the peas from their pods. For a super quick fix, loosely cover, put in microwave for 30 seconds +/-, add a bit of butter. Enjoy raw for a snack. Cassaday Farms (FAM)
Storage: Up to 5 days in the fridge. 
Snap Peas with Fresh Mint and Whipped Ricotta

Frisee is a member of the endive/chicory family with finely curled leaves and a slightly bitter flavor. It is extremely popular in France, and truly one of the most elegant of the salad vegetables. Eat raw in salads or use as a bed for fish and meats. Whistledown Farm (OG)
Storage: Up to a week in the crisper.
