Cabbage is from Wild Earth Farms. You can put the cabbage in a plastic bag to help retain moisture but it isn't totally necessary. If you use only a partial head, make sure to tightly wrap the remainder and put into the fridge.
If you want to really enjoy the leaves of this cabbage try this simply, delicious butter-braised cabbage recipe.
Organic Carrots - Organic
Butternut Squash - Spray Free
Butternut Squash is from Wild Earth Farms in Dugald. Store on the counter, in the pantry, or anywhere that is cool and dry and it will last for 2-3 months. This is one of the most popular squash among our customers and for good reason! It has a sweet creamy orange flesh and a thin pale orange skin (must be peeled). It makes the best soup, but can also be used for a butternut squash mac and cheese, squash and kale lasagna and roasted in small cubes for a fall salad.
This roasted butternut squash recipe has a really cool presentation to it and they use cajun seasoning.
Beefsteak Tomatoes - Spray Free
Tomatoes are from Greenland Gardens. Store on the counter or in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. They're nice large tomatoes, free from the blemishes that wind and rain induce. Perfect to slice for toasted tomato sandwiches, burgers, or veggie pizza. Dice up to add to a chili or stew, or make tomato basil bruschetta.
Brussels Sprout Stalk - Spray Free
Brussels Sprout Stalks are from Jonathan Farms. This is the way Brussels sprouts grow. These are very fresh and so simple to use. You just break them off their stem and cook as you normally would.
We really like this idea of roasting the entire stalk on a cooking sheet! Then everyone at the table can tear off their own Brussels sprout. Try this roasted spicy garlic brussels sprout. If you don't like it spicy leave out the cayenne pepper.
Head Lettuce - Spray Free
Head lettuce is from Jonathan Farms. It's enjoyed for its mild flavor and crispness. It's a delicious addition to salads and perfect for lettuce wraps. Store lettuce in the refrigerator's crisper wrapped in a damp paper towel and sealed in a bag. The leaves will absorb moisture from the towel and you can replace it if the leaves become soggy. Iceberg lettuce should keep for four to five days before it begins to wilt.
Potatoes - Spray Free
Potatoes are from Jonathan Farms. These potatoes are so versatile you can roast, boil or bake them. Store your potatoes in a cool, dry place - do not store them with apples or other fruit as it will cause them to sprout.
