We are starting to get a pile of veggies and being out of town for a long weekend of traveling isn’t good for that! Here is the stock picture and details from the newsletter.  Harmony Valley Farm rocks!

6.10.10 TC veg box

Potato Onions or Scallions:These long, skinny green onions can be used in omelets, stir-fry or potato dishes.

Garlic Scapes: Cut and use in pastas, soups and stir fry.  Try making some pesto.  Store garlic scapes in a damp paper towel in a plastic bag in the fridge.

Spinach or Salad: Spinach is always great no matter how you do it; creamed, raw, steamed, in salads or as a pizza topping.  Salad mix is a quick and easy way to get some greens in your diet when you don’t have much time.

Yukina Savoy: Yukina savoy has a dark green leaf and tender celery like stalk . Use like you would spinach in stir fry, salads or add to soup.

Bok Choi: These stalks are good to use like celery and the leafy greens are fine raw or sauted.  Chop and add other greens, sauté in butter and salt/pepper to taste.

Kohlrabi:  See Feature on back of newsletter

Green Leaf, Baby Red Romaine or Red Boston Lettuce:Lettuce is a great base for salads, top for sandwiches and can be use as a “tortilla” to wrap up other raw veggies for a fast veggie boost.

Strawberries:  A fantastic snack alone.  Try making strawberry pie or put in your pancakes for breakfast, chocolate covered is always nice or how about a fresh strawberry daiquiri.  Freeze for later use if storing for longer than three or four days in the fridge.

Choice -Spring Radish:  A crunchy treat in salads or sauté in butter to tame down its bite.  Store in plastic bag in fridge for 3-5 days.  The CHOICE box is for VEGGIE share members only.  Please only take one portion, if you choose.
