Your weekly update on what's cookin' in your Field Goods bag. Overview of contents, plus recipe suggestions for your perusing pleasure. 
Theme: Green Beans are Supreme
We love Markisto's Certified Organic green beans because they are too easy. These cook in under 10 minutes. Add lemon, garlic and butter. Done. It's important to not wash until you're ready to use them. You can always freeze green beans if you're not going to cook them this week—blanch for 3 minutes, plunge in cold water for 3 minutes, drain, drop in a plastic bag and in the freezer they go. This slow cooker recipe looks mighty fine: Green beans and salt pork (the salt pork and veggies must cancel each other out.)

Green Beans Kid-friendly! Don't be afraid to eat these beans raw as a crunchy snack, or freeze them for enjoyment post-harvest. Markristo Farm (CO)
 

 
Arugula Also commonly referred to as "rocket", arugula has a rich, peppery taste. Raw or wilted arugula tastes fantastic on pizza. Makes for a delicious pesto, especially if you mix with basil and/or parsley. Markristo Farm (CO) 
Red Peppers A cup of sliced raw bell pepper, especially red, has 150% of your daily value Vitamin C. Talk about nutritious! Barber Farm (OG)

Pan-Cooked Peppers
4 tbsp olive oil
2 bell peppers, cut into strips
2 onions, halved & thinly sliced 
1 cup shitake or button mushrooms, trimmed & sliced
salt & pepper, fresh herbs
Toss everything in once the oil is hot, cook for 20 minutes. 

To roast, broil in oven until skin is brown.  Drop in paper bag to cool off. Remove skins.


 
Blue and Green Curly 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. Rogielo & Rogielo Farm (IPM)
Gala Apples Crisp and delicious, cooked or raw—you can't go wrong with Galas. Bob "doesn't pick 'em off the tree until they taste like an apple," which is why these apples are and have been the best we've ever had. EVERYBODY, THIS IS THE LAST PICK YOUR OWN WEEK AT Fix Brothers Farm (IPM)
Eggplant Roast, grill or bake. Add herbs, soy sauce and lemon. Here's a great piece about grilling eggplant from nytimes.com. Barber Farm (OG)
Black Dirt Onions (from the Black Dirt Region of NY) Caramelize onions in 10 minutes: Place chopped onions in a dry pan without salt and cook over medium-high heat until dark brown and softened, about five minutes. Add oil and a pinch of salt, then cook for five more minutes until completely soft. Throw on top of bread for a snack, or use as a garnish to just about any meat or fish. Add to pasta, soup, or pizza. Rogielo & Rogielo Farm (IPM) 
Heirloom Radish Medley...Get Radishical Crunchy and peppery! Perfect with a dab of butter and a sprinkle of salt for a snack. Peeling is not necessary for these. You can eat them raw or saute them. You'll be getting any of the following: D'Avignon, Rover, Ping Pong, and Amethyst. The greens make a spicy addition to salads.  Hepworth Farms (CO)

Storage
  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.

  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.

  • CO - Certified Organic
  • OG - Organically Grown (farm uses organic methods but does not have Certification).
  • IPM - Integrated Pest Management (methods used to reduce the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers)
  • FAM - Family farm (farm often uses organic and IPM methods but may also use chemical fertilizers and pesticides. As a general rule small farms use far fewer chemicals than large industrialized operations).
