      celery

      From: Barber's Farm (Organically Grown in Middleburgh, 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. More info

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

      lettuce

      From: Barber's Farm (Organically Grown in Middleburgh, NY)

      Put fresh salads on your table as often as you can. For a more filling and flavorful boost: add roasted nuts, dried cranberries, roasted sunflower seeds, shaved parmesan, or chick peas.
