      orange carrots

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

      Simple Carrot Soup
      Baked Carrot Oven Fries
      Roasted Carrot And Ginger Soup
      Honey Garlic Butter Roasted Carrots

      celery head

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

      Celery grown by small farms isn't the same thing as the stuff of grocery stores. Grill, marinate, braise, broil, stir-fry, or make into a soup. We love celery noodles! Use a vegetable peeler or paring knife to shave celery into thin strips, then steam sauté. To steam sauté, throw just-washed veggies into a hot pan, crank the heat, lid, and let the water wilt the veggies a little. After 3 minutes, de-lid, stir, then sauté as normal. Add tomato sauce and Parmesan.

      Recipe Ideas:

      Celery Stir-Fry
      Hearty Celery Minestrone Soup
      Pasta with Celery and Lemon
      Celery Mint Salad

      Holmquest Farm (Family Farm in Hudson, NY)

      white cauliflower

      From: Holmquest Farm (Family Farm in Hudson, NY)

      Cauliflower has an exceptional nutritional density, which means it contains substantial amounts of vitamins and minerals with very few calories. Mark Twain calls cauliflower "cabbage with a college education." For a quick fix, sauté cauliflower florets and sliced garlic in olive oil until browned and tender. To boost the flavor, toss with raisins, pine nuts, crushed red pepper, and salt.

      Recipe Ideas:
      Cauliflower Popcorn
      Roasted Cauliflower

      shiitake mushrooms

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

      (Product of Ecuador)

      Kiwis are small fruits that pack a lot of flavor and plenty of health benefits. Their green flesh is sweet and tangy. It’s also full of nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, and potassium. They also have a lot of antioxidants and are a good source of fiber. Their small black seeds are edible, as is the fuzzy brown peel, though many prefer to peel the kiwi before eating it.

      (Product of Ecuador)

      With so many health benefits, it is no wonder that persimmons are one of the oldest fruits cultivated in Asia. Records show that they have been grown in China for more than 2,000 years. 

      You can eat persimmons raw, dried or dehydrated, and cooked. Eat a non-astringent persimmon out of hand like an apple, or cut it into smaller bite-size pieces or thin slices. You can add fresh persimmon to salads and use as a topping for breakfast cereal, parfaits, and so much more.

      petite bananas

      (Product of Ecuador)

      Baby bananas or petite bananas wear a thin, bright yellow signature peel. As their name suggests, they are petite in size, averaging only three to four inches in length. Baby bananas have a very dense creamy texture and once ripe their flavor is rich and sweet with vanilla and caramel undertones.
