      portobello mushrooms

      From: Bulich Mushroom Farm (Family Farm in Catskill, NY) 

      The portobello also called portabella is really simply a brown crimini mushroom in disguise. Evidently the usage of the two words "portobello vs. portabella" is simply an issue of a marketing brand. Once the little brown crimini grows up to be about 4" - 6" in diameter he is deemed to be a portobello.

      celeriac

      From: Dagele Brothers Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Florida, NY) 

      Our favorite really ugly vegetable. When peeled, celeriac's flesh resembles that of a turnip and tastes like a subtle blend of celery and parsley. Additionally, half a cup contains only 30 calories, no fat and provides an excellent source of dietary fiber.

      Recipe Ideas:
      Celeriac and Potato Soup
      Celeriac Chips
      Smashed Celeriac
      Celeriac Coleslaw
