Our First Week!

In Food Adventures on May 7, 2012 at 11:50 am

Hi everyone!

It’s our first week of veggies, and I hope you’re as excited as I am! This year looks like it’s off to a great start.

I wanted to share a great resource with you as we begin our adventures this summer. Getting new and exciting vegetables makes for some fantastic and fresh eating, but sometimes we just have no idea what to do with them. As we research and plan an exciting dish, it’s important to make sure ingredients are staying fresh! StillTasty.com is a great shelf life resource for basically anything in the fridge, so you know the best way to care for your veggies and greens. Lancaster recommends this website as well!

Almost as if Food and Wine magazine knew we were going to be getting some rhubarb today, they’re running a slide show of their favorite Rhubarb recipes! Check it out here!

A lot of favorites are on this week’s list, but I remember last year I had no idea what Komatsuna or Tatsoi were when they showed up. Here are some informational links to get you started! Be sure to let us know at LancasterFarmShare@gmail.com what recipes you use, what works, what was a disaster, as we want our community to share not just local produce, but information as well. Then we’ll get the info up on the website and our Facebook page for everyone to see. Don’t forget to Like us on Facebook!
