Your weekly update on what's cookin' in your Field Goods bag. Overview of contents, plus recipe suggestions for your perusing pleasure. 
Theme: Sky High, Literally
This week's fingerling potatoes are the Papa Cacho variety, native to the mountains of Peru. They can be roasted, but are also a good broiling potato. Be attentive if you're boiling them, as they are easily overcooked. The skin is bright pinkish-purple with pink flesh, so they'll be a beautiful addition to your dinner table. The coolest thing about these taters? They are high altitude potatoes. Skymeadow Farm (pictured right) is one of only a few farms that grow them in NY State. Papa Cachos need to grow at 1400 feet, Skymeadow is at 1500 feet on the edge of the Catskills.

Peruvian Potatoes Pink fingerlings you can cook up with a multitude of methods. Enjoy these rare taters. Skymeadow Farm (CO)
 

 
Delicata Squash Unique for its thin skin (no peeling or removing neccessary) and sweet flesh. Try roasting to soften the flesh and skin. Juniper Hill Farm (CO) 
Macoun Apples Love ‘em. Macouns are a super-sweet cross between the McIntosh and Jersey Black varieties. Paige just learned she's been pronouncing these wrong her entire life...The farmer says these are pronounced “Muh-COWN” not “Muh-COON.” We've heard it both ways. Fix Brothers Farm (FAM)
Bok Choy can be eaten raw, roasted, boiled, steamed, stir-fried, microwaved, or deep-fried. The entire head can be eaten. To prepare, separate the leaves from the stalks, then rinse well and drain. Shred or cut across the leaves and cut the stalks into small slices along the diagonal. Great with a bit of garlic, ginger or soy sauce. Remember—you can eat the stalks raw, too! Green Mead Farm (OG) 


 
Shitake Mushrooms If you eat miso soup, you should be familiar with Shitake mushrooms. Most people don't eat the stems of these, so we suggest using them for stock instead. Bulich Mushroom Farm (OG)
Harkurei Turnips These mild and sweet turnips don't need to be peeled—just give them a good wash. You can cook these or eat them raw. We suggest shredding them and adding to a salad. You can prepare the turnip greens as you would kale or mustard greens. Common Hands (OG)
or
Hidabeni Turnips Like hakurei turnips, hidabeni are tender, sweet and mild...no need to peel them. You can eat them raw. These turnips have a red ring at the edge and a white center streaked with red. Common Hands (OG) 
Red Bibb Lettuce Put fresh salads on your table as often as you can. For a more filling and flavorful boost add roasted nuts, died cranberries, roasted sunflower seeds, shaved parmesan, or chick peas. Continental Organics (Aquaponics - OG)

Storage
  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.
  • Pasta people! Keep it in the fridge 4-5 days or freeze it.
  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.
  • Leave potatoes in the pantry. 
  • Mushrooms should be kept in a paper bag.
  • Turnips will last a long while if you remove the greens.

Key for growing methods:
  • 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).
  • Non-GMO - None of our products are GMO.
