Fall Food Box Week 5 - November 9th

Fall Food Box Week 5 - November 9th

Check out what local, organic, and spray free produce you'll be receiving this week! You will receive 6 of the 8 items listed below!

Organic Green Tomatoes from Green Valley Organics 

Although they look and feel like they could be apples, these green tomatoes are in fact tomatoes, but have a more acidic and tart flavour than red tomatoes. Consider using them for a relish, soup or even frying them! 

Organic Parsnips from Oak Valley Organics

Although often compared to the carrot, there are some key differences. First of all, they are noticeably starchier than their carrot cousins. They are sweeter, too, with a nuttier flavour. But like carrots, they are excellent any way - roasted, mashed, or sautéed, shaved into salads, simmered in stews, or, yes, folded into tender, sweet cakes. All that being said, they do pair excellently with carrots.

Organic Green Kale from Blue Lagoon Organics

Strip all the kale leaves off the stems and store in a large ziplock bag in the fridge. It lasts for at least 2 weeks! Kale is a tougher green, however one of the most nutritious - filled with fibre, folate, vitamin A and K. It's a nice salad green for a fall salad, or mix with other lettuce/greens that you have. Dice it up into fine pieces for an egg scramble or omelette with tomatoes and any other veggies you have. 

Organic Carrots from Blue Lagoon Organics
Store in the fridge crisper or a cool dry place for 3 weeks or more. For raw eating, peel cut up and store in a glass container of water in the fridge. They can be boiled, roasted or added to a slow cooker stew/roast.

Organic Sage from Blue Lagoon Organics
One of our favourite herbs, sage is a beautiful herb with woody stems and textured grey/green leaves. Use it to season meats, fill space in casseroles, make tea, or for its medicinal benefits! 
Spray Free Sugar Pumpkin from Wild Earth Farm
Also known as Pie Pumpkin, these pumpkins are sweeter than the larger common carving pumpkin. This makes them a perfect candidate for your favourite pumpkin dishes and they are also less stringy than craving pumpkins. 
Spray Free Lettuce Mix from Jonothan Farms
Buttery, bitter, peppery and fresh all in one! This spray free lettuce mix is ready to go for salads, sandwich filler, or a quick handful snack! 
Spray Free Celeriac from Jonothan Farms 
This winter root is very popular in eastern Europe and is most often incorporated into salads, soups, casseroles and stews. When skinned, it can be eaten cooked or raw.
