    Spinach

    From: Juniper Hill Farm (Certified Organic in Wadhams, NY)

    Spinach is best when eaten raw or lightly braised. To braise, toss with hot oil and garlic for a few minutes and then addof liquid. We like to add Parmesan cheese. If you choose to steam the spinach, wash and steam for just 5-10 minutes. This preparation method preserves nutrient content. More info

    Bunched Green Onions

    From: Juniper Hill Farm (Certified Organic in Wadhams, NY)

    Spring onions have long, green, delicate stalks with golf-sized onion bulbs. Spring onions are sweeter and mellower than regular onions, but the greens have a more flavor than scallion greens.  Like scallions, spring onions can be used raw or cooked. Because raw spring onions are pungent, taste to make sure their flavor does not overpower more delicate flavors. You can slice raw spring onions thinly onto green salads.

    Recipes Ideas:
    Roasted Spring Onions
    Butter-Braised Spring Onions with Chives
