Mmm some new faces in your box this week!
While busy, this is such a magical time of year produce-wise. It is as if the Earth knows bathing suit season is upon us, and we should be nourishing our bodies with lots of leafy greens and bright radishes in preparation! (Please disregard this quip if you are just here to get down on some veggies, and could care less about how you look in a bathing suit). Hon tsai tai (pictured here) is an asian green in the mustard family that sends up tender little shoots, leaves, and flowers, for your culinary pleasure! The whole plant is edible (flowers included) try it chopped raw in your salad mix, lightly wilted in your favorite soup, or stir fried to perfection. Whenever I have edible flowers, I set them aside and use them as a garnish, they are delicious and much more attractive raw! Our sugar snap peas are so fun to eat and so satisfying! They make a great vehicle for dips and spreads (especially hummus) at snacktime, or a nice crunchy note for your stir fry or salad. We hope you have as much fun getting into your box as we did packing it. If your enthusiasm is bubbling over, be sure to write a review on our Facebook page! www.facebook.com/priapigardens/ Thank you so much to those of you that have already left us beautiful reviews!!!! We love that you love what we love to do! Have a great week, everybody!
