Your weekly update on what's cookin' in your Field Goods bag. Overview of contents, plus recipe suggestions for your perusing pleasure. 
Theme: Island of Misfit Tomatoes
This week's heirloom tomatoes will include any of the four classes of heirlooms: family heirloom, commercial heirloom, mystery heirloom (fun!), and created heirloom. While these heirlooms lack the gene that give tomatoes the uniform red color (your consumer-perfect grocery store type), they are able to more easily manufacture sugar - making them sweeter than your average tom (no offense to any of you Toms out there). Heirloom tomatoes have become exceedingly popular in recent years, helping to preserve myriad varieties of tomatoes that fell out of popularity after the 1940s, just for looking a little weird. We think they're beautiful.

Looking for an easy way to raise money for your school PTO or non-profit organization? The Field Goods fundraiser program is simple. We list the organization on our website, your supporters sign-up and we collect for you a $1 or $2 for each delivery. What a great alternative to calendars, candy and candles! Learn more... Taconic Hills CSD & the Robert C. Parker School are raisin' funds, as well as John Jay Futbol Club.

Lots of extra items to add to your bag this week, check out the Order page

Concord Grapes Just eat the seeds. These are too delicious to fuss around with. Tousey Vineyard (FAM)
 

 
Green Beans These cook in under 10 minutes. Add lemon, garlic and butter. Easy. Do not wash until ready to use. You can freeze green beans—blanch for 3 minutes, plunge in cold water for 3 minutes, drain, drop in a plastic bag and in the freezer they go. Markristo Farm (CO) 
Napa Cabbage There is nothing better than roasted Napa Cabbage. Drizzle a mixture of soy sauce and oil over cabbage sliced into thin discs, sprinkle with red pepper, and bake for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees. Keep cooking until discs become crunchy. Anything you can do with regular cabbage you can do with Napa. Markristo Farm (CO)
Heirloom Tomatoes Warning: Heirlooms can be incredibly beautiful or incredibly ugly. Anyone that has been to an estate sale can verify this. Treat with care. These are fragile, which is why you don't often see them in grocery stores. Berlin's Best Farm (IPM)


 
Red Tomatoes Slice and plump up your salads with these, or chop and create a pasta dish with added garlic, basil, mozzarella cheese and olive oil. Berlin's Best Farm (IPM)
Carmen Peppers Looks fiery hot but tastes sweet, sweet, sweet. Whistledown Farm (OG)
Corn We love fresh summer corn right off the grill or tossed in a salad. For a super easy, fresh summer salad, toss with diced cucumbers and tomatoes, then drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Add red onion or garlic and an herb like basil or mint. Story Farms (FAM)

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.
  • Do not refrigerate tomatoes.

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.
