 Red Kuri Squash from Wild Earth Farms

A teardrop-shaped winter squash, distinctive due to its radiant orange skin. Rich in flavour, with a sweet hint of smooth chestnut. Try it roasted in a kale salad or pair it with some hot Italian sausage.

 

Orchestra Potato from Wild Earth Farms

An amazing potato for these last grilling sessions. It is originally intended for the waxy table, meaning it is low in starch and high in moisture. These potatoes will perform their best in dishes like casseroles, gratins, soups and stews.

 

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.

 

Patty Pan from Blue Lagoon

These saucer-shaped squash are as much fun to look at as they are to cook! They love to be roasted, grilled or seared in a cast-iron pan! Their skin is completely edible, so no need to ruin the aesthetic before you dig in!

 

Goodland Apples from Baker Farms

This local variety is moderately sweet, tender and juicy. Great for eating fresh with an awesome aroma. Try making puree or add it to you breakfasts.

 

Spanish Onions from Hearts and Roots

I mean, I don't know if this one even needs instructions or how I could sufficiently follow up "Italy's Red Queen" with any sufficient description. Sweet, organic local onions -- mix them into that galette, or if you're feeling adventurous, try a jam!

 

Field Tomato from Green Acres

Called field tomato as it is grown in open fields, opposite to in a greenhouse. This variety is also excellent for preserving, sauces and puree. However, nothing says that you shouldn’t eat it raw, it is just as good as a Beefsteak tomato, yet would not as acidic as a Roma tomato.

 

Sage from Twin River

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! 

 

Spray-free Rosemary from Twin River

You'd never guess that this fragrant herb is part of the mint family, would you? This plant has a long history with uses spanning from culinary to perfumes to health! It is a cognitive stimulant (could've told you that with just a whiff!) and adds a deep, resinous flavour to any dishes or even cocktails!

Ground Cherries from Hearts and Roots.

The best way to describe these: a tropical cherry tomatos wrapped in leaves. Eat these like a blueberry or a cherry. Always peel the exterior layer protecting the fruit, unless you feel adventurous for trying something completely different. But we do not recommend it.
