Storage and usage tips and recipes can be found in the Vegetable Directory
Veggie Notes: Wash your veggies prior to use. Your lettuce has been rinsed once on the farm. Your greens were not washed at the farm this week. Your greens will store better and last longer if you rinse them just prior to using.
Snow Peas: eat the whole pod; grasp the stem end and pull down to remove string if desired.
Garlic Scape: The scape is the flowering part of the garlic plant that emerges in June. We cut the scape before it blooms to redirect energy back to growing the bulb. It has a milder garlic taste and can be substituted for garlic. To store: Store scapes unwashed in a loosely wrapped plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. To prep: Chop off the very tip and woody parts of the stem. Then mince finely and use in place of garlic. To use: Garlic scapes can be chopped or diced raw into green or pasta salads, sautéed in place of bulb garlic, sprinkled onto pizza, eaten raw, or used anywhere garlic flavor is desired. They’re also great grilled. To freeze: Scapes can be chopped and frozen in Ziploc bags.
Snow Peas: cook only slightly, they will turn bright green and should keep the firmness; try not to overcook they will become dull in color and soft.
Quick Tips: Greens cook quickly and shrink in volume. Do not overcook aim for bright green and slightly wilted. Quick stir fry sauce recipe
