Recipes and Cooking Tips

Quick Tips:

  • Eat this first: Mesclun, mushrooms, corn
  • Leeks can replace onions in almost any dish. We generally only use the lower white and light green parts of the leeks. Give it a try with pasta sauces, risotto, and soups. Here are some instructions on how to clean leeks.
  • Sweet Italian peppers are a bit more flavorful than bell peppers. Great for snacking! Sauté in olive oil, or add them freshly sliced to pasta, pizza, or salad. 
  • Oyster mushrooms have a light and subtle buttery flavor. Try sautéing in a little oil or butter to serve in a stir fry or over pasta.
  • Asian pears are crisp and juicy, great for fresh salads and relishes and also delicious in a crisp with lots of oats and brown sugar! In comparison to the European variety - they have more crunch and grit. They will keep well in your refrigerator, but we suggest eating or cooking them soon to get the best flavor!
