      portobello mushrooms

      From: Bulich Mushroom Farm (Family Farm in Catskill, NY) Portobellos (also known as “portabellos”) are part of the fungi subkingdom Dikarya, or “higher fungi” family. Portobellos are the fully-grown version of the cremini and baby bella mushroom—their large mushroom caps measure about four to six inches across. Hearty, rich, and meaty enough to go toe-to-toe with a burger, portobello mushrooms are a healthy, versatile addition to any culinary repertoire.

      garlic scapes

      Holmquest Farm (Family Farm in Hudson, NY)

      Garlic scapes are the immature flower stalks of garlic. They are harvested early in the spring to help garlic grow, but are available only a few weeks at that time- so get them while you can! Their flavor is very similar to garlic but without the garlic “bite”.
