Cooking & Storage Tips

This week's basket is an amazing summer picnic waiting to happen! All of the items store fairly well, so you can wait until the weekend to make most of these dishes, if you need to. 

  • Hot Peppers are a special item that we love to include once each summer! We’ve included lots of different recipes to feature hot peppers this week: salsa, stir fry, yogurt sauce, and pickling. We highly recommend pickling them - it will help cut back on their heat, and you can use them slowly :) Remember: be very cautious while cutting them and be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after handling them!

  • Cilantro is a delicious and very versatile herb. We’ve featured it in most recipes this week, but we encourage you to look for inspiration for the many sauces and marinades it can be used it - like this collection of 40 Cilantro Recipes!
