Veggie Tips

Some of you may be wondering what will be in future boxes. Here are some veggies that you are likely to get in your boxes very soon: Spring Potatoes, Carrots, Cabbage and Dill!

Artichokes: Cut off the tips of the leaves, but keep a good inch of the stem.  Swish the artichokes around in some water to clean them.  These artichokes are good cut in half, braised until tender then fried in olive oil and flavored with salt, pepper, parsley and red pepper flakes.

Strawberries: The strawberries are from our friends at Terra Firma Farm  located in Winters California. Because the Full Belly strawberry patch is a little bit behind theirs, we are supplementing the produce that comes directly from Full Belly.

Cilantro: do not overlook the health and culinary benefits of fresh herbs! Use raw, diced cilantro (or add it towards the end of cooking).  It will work well with beans or lentils, cheese, eggs and fish, or as a garnish for soups and salads.
