 Theme  Shishito Toothpick Included

Shishito Peppers are a popular Japanese bar snack and have relatively recently found their way into the US hipster bar scene and among trendy foodie folk. Evidence for this is most clearly seen in the jaw-dropping $21 per pound price charged in NYC. According to none other than Epicurious magazine, sautéed Shishitos are absolutely the best thing to nibble on with drinks. In our opinion, one does not necessarily need alcohol to adore them.

Shishitos are mild, thin-skinned mini-peppers. The word is that about 1 in 10 has a bit of heat. Besides the fact that they truly are addictive and fabulous, they also are insanely easy to prepare.
Prepare peppers: Wash and dry. That’s it. Don’t remove seeds; don’t remove stem. Heat oil in a wide pan until very hot. Turn fan on and have magazine nearby to fan any nearby fire alarms...just in case. Add peppers and reduce heat to medium, toss and turn until they are blistered about 10 minutes. Toss with salt when finished. Find a secluded location. Say a closet. Eat about half of them yourself and then share.
They are served with the stem attached, which makes for a handy-dandy toothpick alternative.

Peppers - Shishito
Hepworth Farms (CO)

Shishito Peppers or 獅子唐辛子 are a Japanese variety of smaller peppers. Perfect for grilling because of their thin skin, stick 'em with a skewer and let them char and blister. OR just eat them whole and fresh!

Apple - Ginger Gold
Yonder Farms (FAM)

Ginger Golds have a crisp, cream-colored flesh with a sweet, mildly tart taste. The sweet apple also has a sharp flavor that provides a slight spiciness. Its flesh has a fine texture and does not brown right away when cut, making for a nicer appearance in fruit salads and as a fresh-cut snack. That means we eat 'em fresh!

Whistledown Farm (CO)

Lettuce is a great way to put fresh salads on your table, and as often as you can. In addition to other prepped vegetables, for a more filling and flavorful boost add roasted nuts, dried cranberries, roasted sunflower seeds, shaved parmesan, chick peas, etc.

Pac Choi
Juniper Hill Farm (CO)

Pac Choi (aka 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!

Considered a staple in Mexico, tomatillos, or “tomate verde”, have a white, meaty flesh with a tangy, herb-like taste. The fruit of the tomatillo is covered with a delicate husk that should be removed before eating. Store on the counter or in the refrigerator and leave the husks intact until consumption. Don’t worry about peeling or seeding these—the texture softens when cooked. Tomatillos can be eaten raw like tomatoes, though we recommend cooking to mellow the acidity. Grilling is our favorite – direct heat brings out the sweet notes of the tomatillo. Cut into wedges, coat with oil, season lightly, and cook for just a couple minutes on each side. For a real summery dish, serve with warm tortillas, scallions, chile, and grilled shrimp or shredded chicken.
