Cooking & Storage Tips

This week, we’re offering you two different ways to use up your cabbage. Speaking of cabbage… During the spring – especially one in which it’s still sleeting in mid-April – we rely on storage crops to fill out our subscriptions. In addition to providing variety in our subscription, this is also really important for farmers, as it helps them to receive steady income throughout the year. By spring, it’s not uncommon for there to be some quality changes in storage crops. This week, while we were working on our recipe collection, we needed to cut out a little bit of from the cabbage: one leaf had gone bad, but the rest was totally fine.

As always, we want to make sure you're happy with your veggies. If you feel that your cabbage - or any ingredients - are not up to your standards, please let us know so that we can replace it!
