Recipes and Cooking Tips

Quick Tips: 

  • Eat this first: mesclun, kale, and watermelon radish
  • Watermelon radishes are really delicious and versatile! They can be eaten raw, pickled, or cooked. They can be braised or roasted like a turnip, or mashed like a rutabaga, though many prefer to eat them raw, since they lose their bright hue when cooked. They will make a bright, colorful addition to a snack tray or on top of a green salad! Similar to regular radishes, this variety does not have to be peeled before eating. Just make sure to wash them very well, and scrub away any dirt.

  • Sweet, nutty acorn squash is one of our favorite autumn ingredients, it can be added to soups, casseroles, hearty salads, or pastas! Here is a break down for how to cook acorn squash.

  • And if you are just looking to make a big, easy pan of roasted veggies, how about livening up your recipes with - some chili-maple butter, a lemon-tahini dressing, or a honey-ginger balsamic glaze.
