What’s in Season?

Stinging nettles have hit the market and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Thriving best in cold, damp weather, this delicate green tastes like a cross between spinach and cucumber. These nutrient dense greens lose their “sting” once cooked or pureed, so don’t be afraid to add nettles to a pesto or atop a seasonal pizza. Another new coming to us is green garlic from Knoll Farms in Brentwood. This item is a perfect choice to add a delicate garlicky flavor to any seasonal dish. Also noteworthy, local organic Meyer lemons and organic mixed chicory blends from Coke farms are still available!

Have you ever ventured to try sunchokes? This root vegetable has a taste and texture similar to potatoes and tastes best roasted, mashed or twice baked! Unlike potatoes, however, sunchokes may be eaten raw. Their earthy flavor tastes great sliced thin a top a salad for a crispy bite.

Kale and chards sure are flourishing in this brisk weather. Of course green kale is great, but there are a few other interesting varieties such as dyno kale and red bore kale– great for a pop of color. Green and red Swiss chard are also coming in packed with flavor, but the rainbow chard perhaps takes the cake. The vibrant colors of these stalks are simply exceptional.

Processed Fruits and Vegetables
