Recipes & Cooking Tips

Eat This First: Arugula, dill, and strawberries. We included a very simple recipe & adaptable "how to" recipe for biscuits under the Omnivore & Localvore section - perfect for serving with the season's first fresh strawberries!

Storage Tip: Don't rinse strawberries until you're ready to eat them (if you can wait!) To keep them for more than a day or so, layer them with paper towels or thin dish towels to absorb extra moisture, which will cause them to rot.

Storage Tip: Dill and Asparagus should be stored in the fridge (or on the counter) in a glass with one inch of water, and the top covered loosely with a plastic bag. Change the water if it begins to appear cloudy.

Storage Tip: Store greens with a paper towel or thin dish towel in the bag to absorb excess moisture and prevent rotting.
