Use first (will keep about a week in the fridge): arugula, spicy salad mix Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): cress, lettuces, spinach, tatsoi Store very well (a month or more): sweet potatoes While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to wash your vegetables well before enjoying. It is hard to believe Week 7 of the 2018 Spring CSA is already here! If you haven’t signed up for our Summer CSA, we still have shares available! The Summer season is the longest at 22 weeks, and runs from 4/25-9/19. Small shares are $375, large shares cost $595. Your box is full of leafy greens again! While we generally refer to the mixed greens in your box as “Spicy Salad Mix”, it is also excellent steamed or sauteed. The mix features arugula, baby mustard, and mizuna. Your tatsoi is an Asian green in the mustard family, but with it’s mild flavor and texture, it is as versatile as spinach. Try it mixed in a salad, in your juice or smoothies, or wilt it into your next pot of soup! The possibilities are endless! If you find any of the spicier greens too spicy for your taste, try cooking them! This will mellow out sharp flavors. A bit of grated cheese never hurts, either (unless you are lactose intolerant, in which case we would suggest coconut milk or tahini!)
