We expect the following Vegetables in our Veg/Fruit Mini Boxes and Singles


Item / Farm / Quantity (Depending on box size)

 

Russet Potatoes / IGL, WI / 1-3#

 

Roasted Russet Wedges with Balsamic Vinegar and Rosemary: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, balsamic, salt, rosemary and some pepper. Toss the potato wedges with the mixture and spread them in one layer evenly onto two baking sheets. Roast the potatoes, turning over once, until golden brown and cooked through, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and serve immediately.

 


Asparagus / Klug Farms, MI / 0.5-1#

 

Pan-Roasted Asparagus with a Crispy Fried Egg: For the gremolata: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the breadcrumbs and olive oil and toast, stirring often with a wooden spoon until golden brown. Place in a small bowl and while still hot, add the lemon zest, red pepper flakes and salt. Mix together and cool the mixture to room temperature. Stir in the parsley and cheese. For the asparagus: Wipe the pan with a clean dish towel. Place over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the asparagus and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Cook, stirring and flipping often with tongs until the asparagus is bright green, cooked through and slightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Divide the asparagus among four serving plates. To the same pan, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and place over medium-high heat. Crack 2 of the eggs into the pan, being careful as it may splatter, sprinkle with salt and reduce the heat slightly and cook until the edges are light brown and crispy and the whites are just set, 2 to 3 minutes. The yolk should still be runny. Repeat for the remaining 2 eggs. Using a slotted spatula, slide an egg on each plate. Sprinkle each dish with the breadcrumb gremolata and a drizzle of olive oil if desired.

 

 

 

 

Lettuce / PrairieErth, IL / 1- 2 heads

 

Grilled Lettuces: Drizzle 1 tablespoon of oil over the endive, radicchio and romaine, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill the lettuces until they are crisp-tender and browned in spots, turning occasionally, about 6 minutes. Coarsely chop the lettuces, then toss them in a large bowl with the remaining oil and vinegar. Season the salad, to taste, with more salt and pepper. Serve warm.

 

 

Rhubarb / Klug Farms, MI / 0.5-1#

 

Rhubarb Mimosa: Combine the rhubarb, sugar and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rhubarb is slightly broken down, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the mint; let sit 1 minute, then strain. The mixture should be syrupy; if it's too watery, return to the saucepan and continue cooking until slightly reduced. Cover and refrigerate until cool. Divide the rhubarb syrup among 6 champagne glasses and top with the prosecco.

 

 

Chard / PrairieERTH, IL /  1-2 bu

 

Wilted Chard: Fill a large bowl with cold water. Trim and discard the last 2 inches of the chard stems. Add leaves to water. (If the greens are very dirty wash them in several changes of water.) Lift the greens from the water, and put them in a colander to drain. Roughly chop the greens. In a large Dutch oven or tall sided skillet over medium heat, cook the onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, cider vinegar and nutmeg for about 2 minutes. Add the greens in batches, stirring each batch as they wilt, before adding more. Add 1 cup chicken stock and cook, covered, stirring once or twice, until tender, about 10 minutes. Adjust the seasoning with vinegar, salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.

Salad Mix / Springdale, WI /  6oz

 

Quinoa Salad: Combine quinoa and stock in small pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cover. Cook 10 to 15 minutes or until liquid has been absorbed. Let cool completely.

Fresh White Bloody Mary : Add the tomatoes, cucumber, celery, 3 cups of grapes and jalapeno to a blender and puree.

We expect the following in our Fruit Boxes

Cantaloupe

Store melons at room temperature and out of direct sunlight. They will keep for several days on your kitchen counter. Transfer to the refrigerator once cut.

Valencia Oranges and Limes

Citrus is best kept in your refrigerator.  Oranges can last for many days, even several weeks.  You will want to leave your citrus out at room temperature, however, to revive its natural flavors.  Remove your oranges from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before you plan to enjoy them.

Strawberries

Store your berries in the refrigerator.  Wash only those berries you plan to prepare and store the rest dry in their breathable container. Berries will keep the longest if they are stored in a single layer so that those on the top don’t crush the berries on the bottom.

Bananas

Bananas are best kept on the counter top at room temperature but out of direct sunlight. It is best to also hang your bananas to prevent them from bruising their bottoms.
