Recipes and Cooking Tips

  • Eat this first: Mesclun, Kale, and Sweet Italian Peppers. 
  • Sweet Italian Peppers: they taste wonderful roasted. Simple cut the peppers in half, place cut side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Add olive oil, garlic, basil, oregano, salt or pepper to taste.
  • Lacinato kale: wash and cut to eat raw. Or, to massage kale, cut leaves into small pieces, add to a bowl with dressing of choice and massage the kale leafs together for a few minutes until it becomes tender.
