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”. <a href="">More info</a></p> <p><b>Recipe Ideas:</b><br /><a href="">10 Things to Do With Garlic Scapes<br /></a><a href="">Grilled Garlic Scape and Kale Pizza<br /></a><a href="">Garlic Scape Pesto<br /></a><a href="">Sautéed Garlic Scapes with Sesame Oil<br /></a><a href="">Lemony Garlic Scape Spaghetti</a></p> <p><strong>How Much to Expect in Your Bag:<br /></strong>Family: 1.30 lb<br />Standard: 1.00 lb<br />Small: 0.72 lb<br />Single: 0.40 lb<br />Carb-Conscious: 0.30 lb</p> <p> </p> <meta charset="utf-8" /> <h2>Red Beets Bunched<img class="wp-image-6674 aligncenter" src="" alt="red-beets" width="300" height="150" data-pin-description="red-beets" /></h2> <p><strong>From: </strong><a href="">Holmquest Farm</a> (Family Farm) in Hudson, NY</p> <p><span>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. </span><a href=""><span>More info</span></a></p> <p><b>Recipes Ideas:</b><br /><a href=""><span>Sweet and Salty Beet Burgers</span><span><br /></span></a><a href=""><span>Grated Raw Beet Salad</span><span><br /></span></a><a href=""><span>Raw Beet “Tea” Sandwiches</span><span><br /></span></a><a href=""><span>Beets and Apple Salad</span></a></p> <p><strong>How Much to Expect in Your Bag:</strong><br />Family: 1 bunch<br />Standard: 1 bunch<br />Small: 1 bunch<br />Single: 1 bunch<br />Carb-Conscious: 1 bunch</p> <h2><br />Strawberries Pint</h2> <p><img class="alignright wp-image-6416" src="" alt="strawberries pint" width="233" height="233" data-pin-description="strawberries pint" /></p> <p><strong>From:<span> </span></strong><a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Holmquest Farm</a><span> </span>(Family Farm) in Hudson, NY</p> <p>Strawberry season is upon us!!!

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. <a href="">More info</a></p> <p><b>Recipes Ideas:</b><br /><a href="">Snap Peas with Fresh Mint and Whipped Ricotta<br /></a><a href="">Snap Pea Salad with Radish &amp; Lime<br /></a><a href="">Snap Peas with Lemon and Mint</a></p> <p><strong>How Much to Expect in Your Bag:</strong><br />Family: 1.10 lbs<br />Standard: 1.00 lbs<br />Small: Not Included<br />Single: Not Included<br />Carb-Conscious: Not Included</p> </div> <div> </div> <div> <hr /> </div> <div> <div> <div><strong>ORDER DEADLINES: 48 hours before delivery!</strong></div> <ul> <li>Tuesday delivery = Saturday 11:59 pm</li> <li>Wednesday delivery = Sunday 11:59 pm</li> <li>Thursday delivery = Monday 11:59 pm</li> <li>Friday delivery = Tuesday 11:59 pm</li> <li>Saturday delivery = Wednesday 11:59pm</li> </ul> <strong>REFERRAL PROGRAMS: </strong></div> <div> <ul class="ul1"> <li class="li1"><b>$20 Off Referral Program </b><a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><span class="s1">Join our referral program</span></a> to start sharing!</li> </ul> </div> <b>FARMING METHODS: </b></div> <div>All of our products are non-GMO! More info on <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><span class="s1">Farming Methods</span></a> and read about <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><span class="s1">Our Farmers</span></a>.</div> <div> <ul class="ul1"> <li class="li1"><b>Certified Organic: </b>Farm uses organic methods and is certified.</li> <li class="li1"><b>Organically Grown: </b>Farm uses organic methods but does not have certification.</li> <li class="li1"><b>Integrated Pest Management: </b>Farm uses methods to reduce the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.</li> <li class="li1"><b>Family Farm: </b>Farm often uses organic and IPM methods but may also use chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
