Red Beets

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

Did you know that a cup of raw beets has only 58 calories? Beets are in the same family as chard and spinach. Chop and slow roast at 350 for 1 hour. Julienne the beets and toss with oil and lemon—beautiful and tasty. Roast, sauté, steam, and more… but try not to boil! Boiling sacrifices the quality and flavor of the beet and releases an unpleasant aroma. More info

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 add a splash of 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

These are our longest fingerling potatoes, they are the ones most resembling fingers. Flavorful long potatoes. Great roasted and tossed with garlic. Fingerling potatoes have less starch than other potatoes, and also lower glycemic index. They are often suggested by nutritionists as a healthier potato! More info

Hold a frozen tomato under warm running water for about 20 seconds to thaw and remove the skin. Add chopped frozen tomatoes late to light, broth-based soups, and early to hearty soups and stews made in the slow cooker. For a sauce, stir olive oil, chopped onion, and minced garlic cloves over medium heat, integrating the crushed tomatoes, chopped herbs like basil, and salt and pepper to taste.

Frozen Kale

From: Hepworth Farms (Certified Organic in Milton, NY)
Not just for soup! Thaw in a big bowl of warm water (you can place this for a few minutes in the microwave), then drain and press using paper towels to remove excess moisture. After, try lightly steaming or sautéeing (with garlic, of course) and then chopping. The taste is mmm mmm good, and we still have some left in the freezer for unexpected company!

Honey Crisp Apples

From: Yonder Farms (Family Farm in Valatie, NY)

The Honeycrisp was to be discarded from the Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station’s Horticultural Research Center, but has become prized for its sweetness, firmness, and tartness, and making it an ideal apple for eating raw. It has much larger cells than most apples, which rupture when bitten to fill the mouth with delicious juice! More info
