Recipes and Cooking Tips

Quick Tips

  • Eat this first: Cherry tomatoes, sweet corn, and lettuce
  • Use lettuce in salads and sandwiches, and add it as a topping for homemade burrito bowls! Or, think outside the salad and use it as a wrap. 
  • Sweet corn can be enjoyed on the cob by boiling, steaming, or grilling. Try adding different herbs and spices to your butter for flavor. It's best to eat sweet corn right away for the best flavor and texture. Follow these instructions to freeze your corn.
  • Add cherry tomatoes to sandwiches, salads, pastas, pizzas, and snacks. Remember: you can store tomatoes on your counter, not in the fridge.
  • Spaghetti Squash, true to its name, can be served just about any way you would eat spaghetti. Try garlic, herbs, and butter, or go with a classic red sauce and cheese. It will store in your fridge for 2-3 weeks.
