The 2018 crop planning continues. The farmers, chef and farm store manager have connected on their favorite varieties, and we're planning to order extra seed to sell in our farm store as well. It will be time for peppers, tomatoes, corn, cucumber and melon before we know it!
In your share this week: Potatoes, leeks, golden globe turnips, braising mix, winter radish and the last of the winter squash.
Tip for cleaning leeks: cut off the root base and the green tops. Save those sections for your next batch of broth/stock. Now with the remaining white/light green stock, slice it in half lengthwise. Use your thumb to flip through the layers under running water to remove any remain soil hidden within the leek.
Leeks are a favorite sautéed and added to soups, egg dishes, and make a fantastic Mac and cheese upgrade!
