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

(keep in a dark/dry place)

zucchini - see the week 10 blog post for a zucchini recipe round up

(store in the fridge in a plastic bag)

kale – don’t forget to give it a little massage and remove the stem.

(store in the fridge)

carrots – this carrot salad recipe looks good.

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

eggplant – and a beautiful one at that. Cut up and add to a stir-fry, a curry, or roasted or grilled veggies!

(store in the fridge)

parsley – use this fresh in recipes!

(tuck it into a glass with an inch of water at the bottom and leave on the counter or in fridge)

beans – beans beans beans! We love beans! you should really try pickling some!

(store in a bag in the fridge)

tomatoes – aren’t they gorgeous!? You should try out the tomato galette recipe below.

(store on the counter, never in the fridge)


scallions - we love to add fresh scallions to home made tuna pasta salad!

(keep in the fridge in a bag or in a glass with an inch of water in the bottom, on the counter)


potatoes - they're so new and so delicious!

(store in a dark place)


peppers - sweet red or orange peppers. We mostly eat these raw because they're so sweet and tender.

(store in the fridge)


swiss chard - don't forget to saute the stalks a little before adding the leaves. We made this swiss chard paneer recipe last night, it's delish.

(store in a bag in the fridge)
