Eat more vegetables.
Theme: FREEZE!
In a time of such glorious bounty, the August harvest has us thinking that we should remind you about a very simple, very useful tool for insuring no food goes to waste: the freezer. Any veggie you would cook, you can also freeze. Most veggies you can freeze by chopping, blanching 2 minutes, dunking in cold water, draining/patting dry, and storing in an airtight container. This goes for beans, broc, cauliflower, leeks, you name it. Waste not, dear eaters. 

Have you heard? Field Goods qualifies for the criteria for the American Heart Association's Fit Friendly workplace certification. Pretty cool! Check it out here. 

Want $100? If you think a friend would enjoy veggie delivery to their workplace, tell them to Contact Paige. Once there are 5 people signed up, we put $100 on your account. Spread the veggie word!

Leeks A member of the lily family with a mild, slightly sweet onion taste. Think giant scallion. Our guilty pleasure is leeks baked in cream—trim the leeks and slice the white parts in half lengthwise, then rinse and arrange on a baking dish, cut side up. Mix 2 cups of heavy cream with a pinch of Dijon mustard and pepper, then pour over the leeks. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top and bake 30-45 minutes or until leeks are tender and the top golden. Juniper Hill Farm (CO)
Storage: 7-14 days in the fridge in a plastic bag. 
Roasted Parmesan Leeks:
Slice leeks lengthwise, brush with olive oil, place in 350° oven for 30 minutes, remove and toss, top with Parmesan and cook for 15 more minutes.
Leeks can be quite sandy. To clean, cut the roots off, slice the leek down the middle almost to the bottom,  then pull the leaves apart and wash between them.

Celery Celery grown by small farms isn't the same thing as the stuff of grocery stores.  This will have a much more intense flavor and maybe tougher, making it ideal for cooking. Grill, marinate, braise, broil, stir-fry, or make into a soup. We love celery noodles: use a vegetable peeler or paring knife to shave celery into thins trips, then steam sauté (to steam sauté, throw just-washed veggies into a hot pan, crank the heat, lid, and let the water wilt the veggies a little. After 3 minutes, de-lid, stir, then sauté as normal) and add tomato sauce and Parmesan. Whistledown Farm (OG)
Storage: 1-2 weeks in the fridge in a plastic bag, airtight container, or wrapped tightly in aluminum foil.
