(Listed from shortest shelf life to longest shelf life) Spinach: We pick this delicious crop straight into the bag in the field. Take out what you need and wash thoroughly. Yes it is dirty but is keeps much better that way. Store in the fridge. Bok Choi Greens: These are delicious. Cook like Tat Soi. Store in a plastic bag in fridge. Romaine Lettuce: Theses small baby lettuce are cut and bagged in the field. We thin the crop in the field to allow room for the remaining lettuce to mature to a larger size. Store in the fridge. Broccoli: Delicious side shoots from our variety ‘marathon’ or from Terra Firma in Winters. CCOF organic. Store in a plastic bag in the fridge. Romanesco: Before there was broccoli or cauliflower there was Romanesco. Try it raw. Store in the fridge. Collard Greens: A very easy green to prepare. I tear the leaves into 2” squares and plunge into boiling water for a few minutes. Drain and serve with a little lemon juice. Store in a plastic bag the fridge. Green Garlic: It is such a delight to have this back in our harvest shares. My favorite way to enjoy is to stir fry the chopped garlic in a skillet with some olive oil. Then stir in eggs for a delicious green garlic scrambled eggs. Store in the crisper. Red Cabbage: Lorraine made a delicious red cabbage slaw for lunch on Sunday. She put orange slices on top which was a very nice touch. Store in the crisper. Lemons: This versatile fruit adds a great touch to winter greens and salads. It will store longer in crisper of fridge, but if you are going to use it within a week it can be stored on the counter. From our long time friend Nacho at Twin Girls Farm in Fresno who also packs for purity hence the labels on the fruit. Leeks: These large alliums are rather mild in flavor and simply melt to perfection when sautéed. Use in soups, stir-fries, or in place of onions in other dishes for a delicious and more subtle flavor. Save the dark green tops for making vegetable stock! Store in fridge and wash well. Grapefruit: From our own trees. I saw Lorraine sprinkling chili salt on a cut half last week! It is amazing what you continue to learn about your partner. Many of you may not know that almost all citrus is washed and brushed. It is then waxed, some organic fruit has an ‘organic’ wax. This is to polish the fruit, make it look beautiful. Once you process fruit in this way you remove the natural protective bloom. Our grapefruits are not so pretty, they are ‘au natural’. Straight from the tree with no beauty treatment. Navel Oranges: From Nacho at Twin Girls Farm.
