Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC. Here's the lineup for Thursday June 11!

SMALL VEGGIE BAG

We're calling this the mini stir fry pack! Cilantro + pac choi + broccoli + scallions + turnips! You don't even have to think about it - these things go great together. Chop + saute lightly with ginger + miso or soy sauce + sesame oil. Eat over some rice or noodles. Top with chili flakes or KIMCHI!

The small veggie bag for Thursday 6/11 delivery will delight you with

  • 1 bunch scallions or fresh sweet onion : Fresh + pungent. Use both the bulbs and greens.
  • 1 Asian green (pac choi or tat soi) : Sweet, tight heads. Use for stir fry or try cutting in half + throwing on the grill.
  • 1 bunch cilantro : Hope you love it! Cilantro works well as a topping to Thai or Mexican dishes.
  • 1 bunch radishes (french or red) or Asian turnips : Pretty, round, crunchy gems. Slice and eat raw or add to your stir fry. (Yes! Radishes, too!)
  • 1 bunch broccoli : This variety is an Asian bunching type which we think is SWEETER than your typical broccoli head. Cook quickly over high heat.
  • 1 bag salad greens (1/3 to 1/2 lb) or head of lettuce : Then, make a salad! :) We've been enjoying a lighter lunch with salad greens on these hot, summery days.
Foraged add-on! 1 ounce of Oregon White Summer Truffle:
Tom is resting this week after lots of ramp bulb collection! BUT, his foraging friend + truffle expert...Charles Lefevre is foraging Oregon White Summer Truffles (Tuber gibbosum) that grow around Douglas firs, in Silverton Oregon with his dogs Mocha and Dante.
Oregon White truffles, different from European white truffles, have a nose reminiscent of butter, roasted hazelnut and include fruity, herbal notes. These shaving truffles are best when sliced directly on to hot fatty food like pasta with cream sauce or macaroni and cheese.
These truffles will be overnight shipped to us just in time to deliver to you! Store fresh truffles in the refrigerator in a plastic container wrapped loosely in a paper towel.  Open the lid once a day to allow CO2 to escape. Fresh truffles are best when used within a week. Spring truffle season in Oregon is May to July, rain willing.

 

LARGE VEGGIE BAG

We love when the seasons collide and we get a taste of two different crop mixes AT THE SAME TIME. We'd recommend a night of grilling with the squash, garlic scapes, fava beans, kohlrabi, radicchio or chard AND that cute little head lettuce.


Taste of summer rolling in -->
1 lb summer squash (mixed varieties) : The first of the season. Throw it on the grill as a delcious side or saute to top your pasta.
1 bunch garlic scapes : We think these taste like buttery garlic when grilled. But, you can also chop and saute lightly to start any meal.
1 cucumber : Just eat this thing right now. So sweet + crunchy!
1 bunch parsley or dill : Both go well with Mediterranean + Middle Eastern dishes. A wonderful accompaniment to lemons/lemon juice for a dressing or marinade.
1 bunch rainbow chard or radicchio : Lemon or balsamic vinegar and goat cheese are nice pairs to these greens. Saute lightly or throw on the grill!

Spring still holding on --> 
1 bag fava beans or snap peas : This could be the last week for these at the temps rise. So, enjoy these will you can!!! Peas are still sweet + juicy. Favas are nutty + delicious. 
1 bunch beets or kohlrabi : Kohlrabi is crunchy + sweet. Eat it raw or saute/grill. Beets make a great salad with a bit of olive oil, vinegar and THAT DILL OR PARSLEY! 1 bag (1/3 to 1/2 lb) salad greens (lettuce, arugula, baby kale or a mix of all): Spring is salad time!!! 
1 head lettuce : Grill these hearty + dense heads for just a couple minutes!
