    Eat This First: Mushrooms, Apple Cider, and Gold Beets.

    • Mushrooms will have the best flavor when eaten fresh. We love pairing them with eggs for breakfast - be sure to check out our new mushroom and egg toast recipe! 
    • Apple Cider is also best when used promptly - unless you like that fizzy, fermented taste that happens naturally over time. To save for later, store in your freezer.
    • Gold beets are an exciting addition this week! They have a beautiful color. If you are coming from our Fall/Winter season, they'll look amazing paired with red beets in a beet gratin or, steamed, or sliced for a salad.
