Theme: Camp Dudley, Con Ed, Frozen, and Gnocchi

We want to give a shoutout to Camp Dudley, a 130 year old summer camp located on the shores of Lake Champlain in Vermont. For the last few years Camp Dudley has worked with local farmers, especially Juniper Hill Farm, to provide wholesome food for its campers with great results. Kids are leaving the camp not only having learned how to canoe but also loving lettuce. Yea Camp Dudley!

More recent climate change news got us thinking about our energy supplier Con Edison Solutions. Frankly, a few years ago we had no idea that we could choose our energy supplier and then choose a fixed cost and green energy (without needing to invest in our own solar panels). Con Ed employees became Field Goods customers, so we learned more and jumped on board! Con Ed works with business and also residential customers… so check them out.

The Pasta Subscription this week is Gnocchi, which is an Italian soft dough dumpling made from eggs, flour, nutmeg, and potatoes. Since it is fresh it needs to stay frozen or it will become one big Gnocchi. Only order the Gnocchi if you can get it in a freezer within four hours. Also, the Fruit Subscription this week is super duper scrumptious Apple Chips from Finger Lakes Fresh!

Fingerling Potatoes - Mixed Colors

Flavorful long potatoes. Great roasted and tossed with garlic. Prized for their interesting colors and exquisite flavors, they are in high demand with chefs and market farmers. Fingerling potatoes have less starch than other potatoes, and also lower glycemic index. They are often suggested by nutritionists as a healthier potato!

The stir-fry mix is a colorful combination of julienned carrots, red cabbage, purple daikon, white daikon, and kale. Cooks in just a few minutes in a hot wok or pan, and is great with any kind of finishing sauce. It's also really nice as a raw salad with a ginger dressing!

Micro Greens Mix
Main Street Farms (CO)

Microgreens are tiny, edible greens—the next living stage after sprouts. The eight greens in this mix are: kale, arugula, mizuna, cabbage, kohlrabi, cressida, mustard greens, and amaranth! Microgreens are anything but micro when we're talking about health. These little babies pack a massive nutritional punch with 4 to 6 times the nutrients of mature veggies. Munch on them as a snack, toss 'em in a salad or top a fancier dish. The entire plant is edible. Eat raw and add to salads, sandwiches, dressings, etc.
