Veggie Tips

Artichokes: These are a delicious “chokeless” variety.  Steam them for 30 to 40 minutes, depending on the size. We are cutting the longer stems because we really like the flavor of the stem and hope you do too! 

Arugula: This arugula is mild enough that you can eat it as a salad right out of the bag.  Use the arugula earlier in the week.

Broccoli likes to stay cold — and if it stays cold it will store well. The stem is delicious.

Chard: You will find many recipes for chard on our web site recipe page under greens.  Please try using the stems, even though their treatment may be a little bit different than the greens.  The stems can be roasted with a bit of cheese and bread crumbs.

Green Garlic: Mild flavored, this will store well.  Wash carefully where the green leaves meet the stem.  This is the garlic plant before it bulbs.  A spring delicacy.

Salad Mix: One of the more perishable items in your box.  If you aren’t going to use it right away you might want to pat it dry with a paper towel and store it in a plastic container with a lid.

Tokyo Turnips: These greens are the BEST!  The turnip roots are very tender.  They can be very lightly steamed or roasted, or even eaten raw in a salad with a vinaigrette dressing.
