Cooking & Storage Tips

Eat This First: Pea Shoots and Kale. To get the best freshness and crisp texture, as well as the best nutritional value, eat up these delicious greens ASAP!

All other ingredients listed will store best in your refrigerator. You don't have to use them all up right away, as they were chosen and grown for quality storage. For longer-term storage, it's helpful to vent the plastic bags or include a piece of paper towel in the bag to help with moisture. 

Recipes
