Check out this week's harvest, great recipe ideas, and a few updates from 4P Foods.

4P Foods Weekly Harvest

What to expect in your bag...

We'll be operating as usual the week of July 4th. Hosting a cookout for Independence Day? Don't forget to order your cookout ingredients this weekend. We're excited to grill some kabobs, serve some salsa verde, kick up our feet and throw back some blackberry margaritas. The ground bison chuck makes a crazy good cheese burger with the Monterey Jack. 

Traditional garlic vs. fresh garlic, what's the difference? Most garlic we use has been cured (i.e. dried). Young, fresh garlic is is typically wet, and has a more mild garlic flavor.  It can be used in any recipe calling for garlic, and makes a great aioli. To keep it in tip top shape, be sure to store it in the fridge.

For instructions on proper storage of your weekly items please see our Storage Tips Blog Post. This post will be regularly updated with new items that come in your bag. You can search items by alphabetic order.

Don't forget to keep the plastic "Green Bags" that come in your share each week. They are specially made to keep your produce fresh for as long as possible. They can be rinsed and reused so be sure that you don't accidentally throw them in the trash. If your kitchen drawers get too crowded, just throw them back in your 4P Foods tote bag and we will take care of recycling them for you.

A Note from 4P Foods:

Don't forget!!  Cutoff times to skip a bag: Sunday at midnight for Wednesday deliveries, Monday at midnight for Thursday deliveries, and Tuesday at midnight for Friday deliveries.  If you have scheduled upcoming skips and change your membership at all, you will need to reschedule those since it is a new subscription that gets created.  Email or call if you need help.

If you have a produce share AND a protein/dairy share and need to skip a given week, be sure to skip ALL of them when logged into your account page.  Otherwise, the system is designed so you can skip one or the other in a given week.
If you ever get a bruised apple or "sad" greens or anything along those lines - TELL US! It happens in the world of produce, and we need that kind of feedback to tell our farmers if something is wrong, and get you a discount/credit if needed.  That's what we're here for!

Peas and love,
