swiss chard








What to do with them? How to Store? Recipes below!

garlic – we don't need to tell you who to use up this little gem.

(keep in a dark/dry place)

(store in the fridge in a plastic bag)

kale – don’t forget to give it a little massage and remove the stem. Check out this video of how to remove kale leaves from the stem in seconds. See below for recipes.

(store in the fridge)

(Remove the carrot tops (they leach moisture from the roots) before storing them both in plastic bags in the fridge)

swiss chard - we've been meaning to try this recipe for swiss chard chips with honey mustard dipping sauce.

beans – beans beans beans! We love beans! especially in this recipe for green beans gremolata.

(store in a bag in the fridge)

basil – basil season is fleeting, blink and you'll miss it. Make some pesto, sprinkle on pasta, or use in a lemonade.

(store in a glass on the counter, with some water in the bottom)

cucumber – peel a little, slice up, sprinkle with salt, serve on a plate. We prefer them crisp and cold from the fridge. So refreshing!

(store in the fridge)

scallions – have you tried grilling them on the BBQ?

(store in the fridge)

beets – both tops and the bottoms are edible!

(remove the tops from the bottoms, store in the fridge)

potatoes – boil them and eat hot slathered with butter!

(store in a cupboard)

dill – great for making a quick pickle or chop up the fronds and freeze for later.

(store in a glass with an inch of water at the bottom)
