Week #17 – October 8th – October 11th
Leeks-see below (no veg directory page)
QUICK TIPS: Be sure to take a look at the links for each veggie above. They take you to the vegetable directory.
Ideas for the week – Napa Cabbage – This is the cabbage used for kimchi. You can use individual leaves or shred and add to a stirfry, slaw, or salad. Leeks – There is no directory page for this one. This is info from Week#14: Leeks can be grilled, sauteed, fried, roasted, braised and steamed. Wrapped lightly in refrigeration they should keep for a week or two. Tougher green tops are not eaten but can be used to flavor soups, stocks, and potatoes when boiling. Sample Recipe – Potato Leek Soup. Cleaning tips for leeks video/photos #1 or #2 Parsley – keep it fresh in a glass of water in the fridge or wrapped in a paper towel in a bag. You can also rinse/dry/place in a freezer bag/squeeze out air and put it in the freezer for later use. Great to chop and stir into potato dishes. Watermelon Radish – They can also be used like other radishes – raw sliced/shredded, stirfry, roasted, kimchi, sautees, and curries. So beautiful!! We love them roasted and in a stirfry. Beans – Did you freeze any yet this season? Here is a step by step on WikiHow Kale – Excellent as Greens & Beans, salad, or in stirfry and soups.
