    Bunched Onions


    From: 
    Barber Farm (Organically Grown)

    Spring onions have long, green, delicate stalks with golf-sized onion bulbs. Spring onions are sweeter and mellower than regular onions, but the greens have a more flavor than scallion greens.  Like scallions, spring onions can be used raw or cooked. Because raw spring onions are pungent, taste to make sure their flavor does not overpower more delicate flavors. You can slice raw spring onions thinly onto green salads.

    red-beets

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

    Did you know that a cup of raw beets has only 58 calories? Beets are in the same family as chard and spinach. Chop and slow roast at 350 for 1 hour. Julienne the beets and toss with oil and lemon—beautiful and tasty. Roast, sauté, steam, and more… but try not to boil! Boiling sacrifices the quality and flavor of the beet and releases an unpleasant aroma. More info

    Carrot

    You can’t beat freshly harvested spring carrots for sweetness and crunch. This time of year, we think they are best eaten raw but wether you roast or steam you will love them. Cut the greens off to use for pesto or as you would parsley. Removing the tops will also keep your carrots crispy   More info

    Shelling Peas

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

    After you shell these peas, do not eat the shells! They’re too tough to eat, so we like to save them for stock instead. We consider it a travesty to eat these anyway but raw. If you feel you must cook them, put in boiling water for a couple minutes. Peas and mint pair well together. Melt butter, then mix in finely chopped mint and add to peas. More info
