Organic Kennebec Potato from Oak Valley Organics

Yellow potatoes are slightly waxy in texture, velvety, and moist. Baking, mashing, or French fries, you name it!

Organic Orange Carrots from Oak Valley Organics

Sweet, tender and fresh -- did you know the greens are an excellent source of nutrition and EASY to turn into a delicious dish all on their own? Check out  Carrot Greens: 3 ways, on the recipe blog for your own inspiration! OR use the carrot tops to make a Chimichurri

Organic Garlic Scape from Blue Lagoon

Subtle, sweet and somewhat of a lightly-garlic-flavoured asparagus in overall sensation, these can be fried into exotic tempura, sauteed and added to a side, or blended into a delicious pesto! Their garlic flavour settles down slightly when cooked, giving way to their sweetness.

 

Organic Parsley  from Blue Lagoon

Fresh and lightly peppery, parsley plays nicely in cocktails, atop buttery potatoes and torn or chopped over just about any fat-rich meat! 

Treating the parsley much like a bunch of flowers will keep it fresh longer. Trim the stems slightly, and without washing place the bundle in a container filled with about 1 inch of water. 

I am looking forward to this Quinoa Tabbouleh Recipe.

 

Organic Bunched Onion from Blue Lagoon

 I mean, I don't know if this one even needs instructions. Sweet, organic local onions -- mix them into that galette, or if you're feeling adventurous, try a jam!

 

Organic Sage  from Blue Lagoon

This earthy, peppery herb is a member of the mint family and adds a crisp comfort to dishes. It has something of a pine-like aroma when raw, and you're more than likely familiar with the flavour, even if you've never used it on its own! 

Try making some Sage infused Honey for your tea.

 Organic Red Butter Head  from Blue Lagoon

Red butter lettuce is very similar to green butter lettuce but with reddish leaves. Butter lettuce forms cup-shaped leaves that are loose and delicate. The flavor of butter lettuce as its name suggest is buttery and slightly sweet.

 

Spray Free Red Beet Bunch  from Blue Lagoon


Sweet and nutritious! Beets are known for roasting and borscht, but they've also been known to sneak their way into a desert or two, lending rich sweetness, minerals and moisture retention! They're packed with minerals and dietary nitrates, which improve oxygen flow through the bloodstream and regulate blood pressure!

How does a Beet Brownie sound?

 

Field Cucumber  from Blue Lagoon

These cucumbers are sweet, slender, straight and have fewer, less noticeable seeds than many other cucumbers.

 

Try them in a quick Asian salad

Spray Free Spring Mix from Jonothan Farms

The classic blend, but fresh and local!

We tried this salad and we loved BUT skip the dressing and give our pink vinaigrette a try.

Spray Free Chard from Jonothan Farms

Chard lies somewhere between spinach and kale in the 'greens spectrum' -- not as earthy or tough as kale, not as tender as spinach. This green is extremely versatile -- it can be sauteed, eaten raw in salad, and is delicious grilled over charcoal or on a regular grill. The stalks are traditionally prepared separately from the leaves, but who needs tradition

Try this recipe!

 

Spray Free Gold Beet Bunch from Jonothan Farms


Sweet and nutritious! Traditionally, beets are known for roasting and borscht, but they've also been known to sneak their way into a desert or two, lending rich sweetness, minerals and moisture retention! They're packed with minerals and dietary nitrates, which improve oxygen flow through the bloodstream and regulate blood pressure! Golden beets are slightly sweeter and less earthy than their red counterparts!

I can't wait to try this Shawarma-Spiced Beets with Garlicky Labneh

 

 Spray Free Green Summer Crisp from Jonothan Farms


Sweet and tender! This leafy lettuce adds a crisp freshness to salads or sandwiches without much water content!
