Recipes and Cooking Tips

Quick Tips: 

  • Eat this first: mesclun, bok choy, mushrooms
  • Bok choy has a mild, borderline sweet flavor that works well with flavorful sauces, cooked meats, and other vibrant vegetables. The white stem stays crisp even after some cooking, while the leaf wilts and becomes silky. Bok choy will keep well for several days in the crisper drawer. Separate the stems and wash away any dirt caught near the base before eating.

  • Don't fear the Celeriac! Celeriac, aka celery root, can be eaten both raw and cooked. First, peel or trimmed off the rough outer layer with a knife. Celery root can be grated into salads, cooked in soups or casseroles in place of celery, or boiled with potatoes and mashed to add a light texture and celery flavor. The taste is very mild and pleasant, like celery. The root is crunchy when raw, like jicama, and when cooked, has the texture of a potato.
