The Farm at Sunnyside - Tuesday October 27th Lineup
by Office Number1Sons
October 27, 2020
Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC.
The Large Veggie Box for Tuesday 10/27 will delight you with:
- 1 bunch cilantro/lemongrass - Cilantro goes well with Asian or Mexican inspired cooking; chop and add to stir-frys or tacos! Lemongrass adds lemony freshness to a curry or soup.
- 1 bag greens mix or 1 head lettuce - You know what to do with this one - toss the greens together with RADISHES or HAKUREIS and CARROT-GINGER dressing for a refreshing salad.
- 1 head cabbage or napa cabbage - These crisp greens make a great classic slaw with shredded CARROTS or add texture to a stir-fry.
- 1 bunch asian greens - Bok choi, choi sum, or tat soi: these are all tender and delicious in stir-frys. Cook at high heat with CARROTS, CAULIFLOWER or BROCCOLI, and GINGER.
- 1 piece ginger (2-3 inches) - Freshly dug, this is unlike the standard grocery store variety. Full of floral, acidic, and citrusy flavor, this ginger has very thin skin and is mild enough to eat raw.
- 2 lbs sweet potatoes - We can't deny fall is here when sweet potatoes show up! Orange and sweet, these tubers roast up beautifully to top a salad or rice bowl.
- 1 bunch carrots - Snappy and sweet, these orange beauties cook up into a curry and are a perfect snack. Blend up with ginger, garlic, olive oil, and vinegar for a hearty salad dressing.
- 1 bunch hakurei turnips or radishes - Radishes are back - crunchy and slightly peppery, toss these on top of a LETTUCE salad with CARROTS. Hakurei turnips are mild and sweet and just as crunchy!
- 1 head cauliflower or 1 bunch broccoli - Use either one with CABBAGE, SWEET POTATOES, and GINGER for a hearty curry dinner.
The Farm at Sunnyside borders the Shenandoah National Park - read more about their conservation efforts on their website. We love visiting Sunnyside and learning about cover crops, compost, field rotation, food safety processes, and working with a seasonal farm staff - Stacey and Casey excel at all these things!
The farm may substitute veggies if they run out. This happens rarely, but does happen from time time. Produce is measured by weight, so quantity may vary slightly from pictures. Sorry, we can't offer substitutions right now.
