Veggie Tips

Painted Serpent Cucumber: Cucumbers and melons are closely related — They are from the same taxonomic family.  The cucumber in your box is taxonomically more of an immature melon than a cucumber, but in flavor and use it is like a wonderfully mild juicy cucumber, with thin skin that doesn’t require peeling.  

Eggplant:  This weekend we had grilled eggplant as a side dish (lightly oiled and salted before going on the grill) on Saturday.  On Sunday night we chopped up the extras, mixed them with basil and tomatoes and put them over some Full Belly Campanelle Whole Egg Pasta.  

Potatoes: Because we have potatoes many months during the year, we have a lot of potato recipes in our recipe archives.
