STORAGE & TIPS:
Radish & Turnip & Greens & Rhubarb & Cilantro – see newsletter week#1
Cooking Greens – when cooking most greens you really just want to wilt lightly and not overcook to mush; sauté with garlic and olive oil with salt and pepper to taste
Radish – Vitamin C – can be eaten raw or cooked – if you don’t like the spiciness of radishes – when cooked they keep the crunch and loose the spiciness; add with other sautéed veggies; slice or chop and add to salads ; you can even cook the greens
Spring Salad Turnips – can be eaten as a radish ; crunchy & peppery; raw or cooked-sliced and sautéed
Parsley – excellent source of Vitamin A, B, K and more C than most citrus; minerals too; immune booster; chop and add to salads, soups, vegetable dishes; can use stems and leaves; storage basically same as cilantro last week trim stems keep in glass of water in the fridge; can be frozen for use later or dried
Broccoli Raab (“Rob” ) – excellent source of vitamins A, C, B, & K ; dietary fiber; protein & minerals; considered a bitter cooking green; should be boiled before sauté – see recipe pages
