What’s in the Box – July 10, 2018

fresh garlic

Fresh Garlic – Harvested just days ago, the skin is still fresh, so it’s a little harder to peel than you’re used to. You can let it sit out on the counter (at room temperature) to dry, or you can use it fresh now. The flavor is so bright compared to garlic you find in the stores.
Storage: On the counter at room temperature. Uses: Raw or Cooked When to use: Within a month.

Carrots – Freshly harvested, sweet and crisp!
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Separate the roots from the greens. Uses: Raw or Cooked When to use: Within 5 days.

Cilantro – I can’t get enough of this year’s cilantro…it tastes like summer! Try a cilantro salsa verde. Recipe below…
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw or Cooked When to use: Within 5 days.

Zucchini – This first planting is yielding well. We harvest zucchini and cucumbers every single day to keep up with the plant’s fast production.
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Cooked When to use: Within 5 days.

Cucumbers – Crispy, juicy and sweet!
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw When to use: Within 5 days.

Green Romaine Lettuce – A great hot weather loving lettuce! Crunchy and sweet. It holds up well with heavier dressings and salad ingredients.
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Cooked or Raw When to use: Within 5 days.

Radicchio – This is an Italian leaf chicory that is packed full of vitamins and nutrients. It has a bitter and spicy taste, which mellows when it’s grilled or roasted. I happen to love the bitter flavor in a salad paired with sharp parmesan cheese, olive oil, lemon juice and salt & pepper. If you don’t love the bitterness, I would encourage you to try the recipe below and grill it! The bitter flavor disappears and the dressing on top of the grilled wedges is delicious!
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Cooked or Raw When to use: Within 5 days.
