Navel Oranges: These beautiful fruits are from our friend Nacho at Twin Girls Farm near Fresno and are QAI (Quality Assurance International) certified organic. We’ve been friends with this family farm for a long time and see them every week at the Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market and yes, they do have twin teenage girls. They sell some of their goods to Purity, so that will explain if it has a market sticker on it. Stores well in fridge. Peel and enjoy! Lemons: These juicy dreams add a great touch to many a dish and salad. They are also from Twin girls Farm near Fresno and are QAI certified organic. Store in fridge.
Mint: Great fresh or dried. Makes a great tea and a lovely garnish.! Add a sprig of mint and a slice of lemon to your water for a refreshing drink. For fresh storage, keep in plastic in fridge and use within a few days. To dry, hang upside down away from the sun.
Italian Flat Leaf Parsley- The beautifully clean, crisp flavor adds depth to many a dish! Store in a plastic bag in the fridge and use rather quickly.
Escarole & Frisee OR Dandelion Greens: These gorgeous bitter greens are tasty either raw or cooked. Eat raw with a sweeter dressing to balance the bitter flavor. The bitter flavor mellows when cooked. Wash well before use, and store in plastic bag in fridge.
Stir-Fry Mix: Bright and beautiful! This is a mix of kales, collards, and chard. Chop and sautee in olive oil or butter for a lovely side-dish. Also tasty raw. Store in plastic bag in fridge and wash well before using.
Chard: These big, beautiful leaves are mighty tasty! Chard is a cousin of the beet and the crinkly leaves are amazing steamed or sauteed until bright green. Remove the leaves from the stems, but make sure to eat the tasty stems too. (The stems will need to be cooked a little longer than the leaves.) Store in plastic in fridge and wash well before use.
Green Garlic: This young garlic has a milder and less bitter bite than garlic cloves and sweetens when cooked. Can also be eaten raw. It has flat leaves with v-shaped cross sections. Store in fridge and use within a week. Enjoy!
Leeks: These large alliums are rather mild in flavor and simply melt to perfection when sauteed. Use in soups, stir-fry, or in place of onions in other dishes for a delicious and more subtle flavor. The green tops are great for making stock! Store in fridge and wash very well before using.
Pink Lady Apples: These apples are from Smit Orchards in Linden, CA and are certified organic. Keep in the fridge or on the counter (depending on how you like them) and wash before consuming.
Carrots: Enjoy these sweet and crunchy certified organic treats from our friends at Terra Firma Farm in Winters. Store in plastic bag and wash well before eating.
