      arugula


      From: 
      Migliorelli Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Red Hook, NY)

      red swiss chard

      From: Migliorelli Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Red Hook, NY) 

      Cooked chard is a great stand-in for spinach. The stems can be steamed or grilled like asparagus. While Swiss Chard is naturally bitter, cooking mellows the flavor. Unless the stems are tender, remove them and just prepare the leaves. You can prepare chard in a jiffy by sautéing it in olive oil with some garlic—toss in some chili for a little zip.

      Recipe Ideas:
      Sautéed Swiss Chard with Garlic and Lemon
      Asian Style Swiss Chard
      Grilled Tomato, Mozzarella and Swiss Chard Wraps

      hakurei turnips

      From: Migliorelli Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Red Hook, NY) 

      These mild and sweet turnips (aka Hakurei Turnips) don't need to be peeled—just give them a good wash. You can cook these or eat them raw. We suggest shredding them and adding to a salad. You can prepare the turnip greens as you would kale or mustard greens.
