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. 

  • Mesclun - this flavorful salad mix is definitely the most perishable item this week.

  • Pears can be stored on the counter and may need 1-3 days to ripen. Once they reach the ripeness you like, you can move them into the fridge to slow ripening and help them last longer. These pears should be crisp and are great for snacking, salads, and baking!

  • Another delicious pear recipe we wanted to share: Roasted Cinnamon Pears with Dark Chocolate Sauce
