Storage & Cooking Tips

Eat This First:

  • Mesclun (a mix of baby greens) is best to eat right away. 
  • Garlic should be stored in a dry, cool place (think inside a cabinet, in a bowl) This will prevent it from sprouting!
  • Cherry tomatoes can be stored on the counter for a couple of days. If you won't eat them right away, you could saute them and freeze them to serve with pasta later (but we recommend either snacking on them or lightly sauteeing or roasting them to serve with pasta - a super quick meal)
  • Kale, green beans, and summer squash will store well in your fridge. Just make sure not to let too much moisture build up. Adding a paper towel to the plastic bag will help with that! So will eating or cooking them right away :)
  • Be sure to check out the Kale profile below for 3 ways to prepare Kale!
