IN THE BOX:
* = Items in Box for 2
*Cabbage- Wrap cabbage in plastic wrap and keep it chilled in the refrigerator. An alternative to plastic would be placing it in a tightly-locking container that limits air flow. Properly stored, cabbage should last about a week.
*Carrots- Cut the tops off to keep them fresh longer. Place them in closed container with plenty of moisture, either wrapped in a damp towel or dunk them in cold water every couple of days if they’re stored that long.
*Celeriac- A delicious form of celery that is pretty new to people's kitchens. Peel, chop and cook with potatoes, mash the lot with more butter and cream than your mother would. Cool and damp is best, so an outdoor, shady vegetable rack is good and the bottom of your fridge even better. Healthy celeriac should keep, unwrapped, for several weeks without any significant loss of quality. Even when cut in half, they will still keep for a week or more, though you may need to shave off a layer to refresh the surface.
Chard or Red Russian Kale- Remove any bands, twist ties, etc. Most greens must be kept in an air‐tight container with a damp cloth to keep them from drying out. Kale, collard greens, and chard do well in a cup of water on the counter or fridge. Keeps 2-3 days.
*Chives or Parsley- Wrap in a damp paper towel and store in a plastic bag in the fridge. Keeps about 1 week.
Green Garlic- Green garlic should be stored in the refrigerator, where it will keep for 5-7 days. Wrap the green garlic in a damp paper towel and place it in a plastic bag; or for a non-plastic alternative, stick the green garlic in a tall glass with some water in the bottom.
*Mandarins- These juicy, freshly picked mandarins can be left out on the counter for a few days, but last up to two weeks if refrigerated.
Oranges- Keep in a dish on your counter or table. Lasts one week. Or you can store in your fridge for longer storage.
*Radicchio or Lettuce- Refrigerate in a sealed plastic bag. Keeps for a week.
Spring Onions- You can keep it on your counter for a couple of days or in the crisper in your fridge for up to 2 weeks.
*Turnips- Remove the greens (store separately) so they don't draw out excess moisture from the roots. Place them in an open container in the fridge with a wet towel placed on top. Lasts up to one week.
