Check out what local, organic, and spray free produce you'll be receiving this week!
Spray-Free Beefsteak Tomato from Greenland Gardens
One of the largest varieties of tomato, these are sweet and meaty, making them the ultimate BLT tomato. They're also great for slicing up into a "flattened" caprese!
Organic Red Potatoes from Oak Valley Organics
An organic take on a classic! Red tomatoes have multiple health benefits and substitute the starchy flavour of other potatoes in favour of a more sugary one.
Spray Free Celeriac from Twin River 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.
Check out our two inventive recipes dealing with celeriac:
Organic Carrots from Oak Valley 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 Red Beets from Oak Valley Organics
Earthy, hearty and purple-ish red. Beets have a shelf life of around 2-3 weeks and can be pickled, boiled, or baked. They also pair nicely with goat's cheese in a salad!
Frozen Peas from 4A Farms
Spray Free Acorn Squash from Wild Earth Farms
Also called pepper squash or Des Moines squash, these winter squashes are known for their long ridges on the outside and a sweet, yellow-orange flesh inside.
Spray Free Rosemary from Twin River Farms
An essential herb for cooking, check out this week's recipe which calls for rosemary. Luckily you've got some fresh and local one on hand!
