Week 2

pea tendril

Hi everyone,

Hope you enjoyed your first week of veggies and are ready to start week 2! As this is just the beginning of the season, you will be getting lots of tasty greens. But there are so many different ways to eat them!

Last year (June 2011/Week 2) I did a short write-up on my favorite cook book from the Moosewood Kitchen in Ithaca, NY. They have some excellent recipes and suggestions for using all sorts of produce, but with a special emphasis on greens.

Here's what's in your bags this week:

Salad Mix with pea tendrils, beet greens, spinach and a wide variety of lettuces

(Tendrils are the growing tips of pea plants, and they are very tender, with a light, pea-like flavor that's really quite nice in salad. The beet greens are actually the dark red in this mix.)

bronze fennel

Arugula (light green leaves with a real zippy flavor) ​​



Bronze fennel (an herb that tastes like licorice)

I've not used fennel myself, but I've heard it's good cooked with fish or in pizza dough. Look it up in a cook book, or on Allrecipes.com to see what you can find! It might become your new favorite recipe...

Remember to eat well and take care of yourself and your family!
