In Your Share (June 8th edition)

This week your share may include…

  • Cilantro: Hip-Hip-Hooray for the spring herbs!
  • Green Garlic: Cute little bunches – just chop up the whole thing and use it fresh to add zing to salad or salsa. Or saute like regular garlic 
  • Garlic Whistles: These are the flowering stalks of the garlic plant, aka scapes. I often toss them with a bit of salt & olive oil, put them under the broiler until just a few spots begin to carmelize, then put the whole tangle on the table as fun finger food.  
  • Lettuce Mix: And we continue to be very excited about salad! 
  • Mizuna: The bunches are smaller this week because we finished the rows in the greenhouse and began to harvest outside. Makes a nice mild addition to salad and also a good cooking green. 
  • Mustard Greens: Spicy in salads, mild when cooked. 
  • Spring Onions: Use these raw like a green onion or saute them.
  • Pea Shoots: These unfurling tendrils of the pea plant have the fresh sweet flavor similar to the pods and make a great addition to salads.  
  • Hakuri Turnip: Tender, sweet and not at all spicy they make a great raw snack. In addition, you can cook up the turnip greens just like mizuna and mustard greens.
