Summer 2012 Week 1 (April 17)

As a heads up for the new members… what I typically do is post the list here just after I pick vegetables up from David. Later tonight, I’ll post pictures of the produce so you can more easily identify them, as well as any recipes.

A few quick tips:

  • Asparagus keeps best if you stand it up in a bowl of water in the fridge
  • Greens store best wrapped in a paper towel, then wrapped loosely in a plastic bag, then tucked into the crisper.  A ziploc will sub for a crisper when you run out of room.  The thicker the greens, the less important it is to baby them — i.e., eat your salad greens first and your collards later in the week.
  • Cleaning produce immediately before use tends to help it keep, but very wilted or slimey leaves should be removed before storage
  • Microgreens are delicate, baby plants.  Restaurants pay top dollar for them, so enjoy them fresh on salads, with crackers and cheese, or straight from the container.
