Theme: We Carrot A Lot
We're guessing you may need to bring something along to any number of parties in the next week or so. Here's our suggestion to show you care...CARROTS! Give the gift of health with some good ol' fashioned Vitamin A. One of our favorite dessert vegetables, we're all about decadent carrot cake. Surprise your out of town guests with some out-of-this-world morning glory muffins (a personal staff favorite), and offer your vegan friends some delicious carrot banana bread. Check the carrot section below for more fantastic recipes!

And don't forget to spread the good carrot word with a Field Goods gift certificate (email us if you have special instructions or questions). On the website under Extra Items>Gift Certificates.

  • 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.

Kale Easy to cook and incredibly healthy. For a quick dish, cook kale for a minute in a pot of boiling water. Drain, squeeze out excess water, and sauté with olive oil and garlic for just a couple minutes. Remember to try kale chips if you haven't yet. Just strip the leaves off the stems, place in a plastic bag with a little oil and soy sauce mixture (by little we mean enough to lightly coat—worse thing you can do is add too much), shake the bag, and place in the oven at 280 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Running Creek Farm (Greenhouse)
Storage: Keep very dry in the fridge, up to 1 week.
