    sugar snap peas

    From: Stoltzfus Family Farm (Family Farm in Vernon Center, NY)

    Sugar snap peas are all about texture, sweetness, and crunch. They don’t take long to cook—1 to 2 minutes max. Resist overcooking—you’ll end up with sad, limp peas. Cut your snaps in thirds crosswise, or halve lengthwise on a long diagonal. Cut them before or after steaming. If boiling, cut them afterwards or else the tumbling action of boiling water will free the peas from their pods. Enjoy raw for a snack. More info

    From: Migliorelli Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Tivoli, NY)
    Bok Choy can be eaten raw, roasted, boiled, steamed, stir-fried, microwaved, or deep-fried. The entire head can be eaten. To prepare, separate the leaves from the stalks, then rinse well and drain. Shred or cut across the leaves and cut the stalks into small slices along the diagonal. Great with a bit of garlic, ginger or soy sauce. Remember—you can eat the stalks raw, too!

    Similar in flavor to anise, fennel is crunchy and slightly sweet. It's popular in Mediterranean cuisine, though often associated with Italian and Indian cooking. Fennel is one of the three main herbs used in the preparation of absinthe... what fun! Cook it or eat it raw.
