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

peppers – you know what to do!

(store in the fridge)

carrots – last of the season!

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

potatoes – boil ‘em, mash ‘em, bake ‘em.

(store in dry, dark place. We use a paper LCBO bag)

turnips – these are very similar to the other turnips you’ve seen in the weekly shares. They make a good quick pickle.

(remove tops and store both in the fridge)

parsley – these parsley potatoes look good or check out these parsley recipes

(tuck into a glass with an inch of water at the bottom and leave on your counter)

bok choi - stir-fry!!!

(store in a bag in the fridge)

mixed radish – red meat and daikon! Both would be good grated onto a salad or into a coleslaw, or made into a quick pickle.

(store in the fridge)

rutabaga - just in time for thanksgiving! We like to roast it with other root veggies like parsnip, potatoes, and carrots!

(store in the fridge)


leeks - check out this video if you're unsure about how to clean leeks. We like to saute them for omelets or use them in leek soup.

(store in the fridge)

scallions - tender and beautiful, we like them best in scallion pancakes, see below.

(store in the fridge)


beets - roast in the oven or slice into coin and braise in a pan with some water.

(store in the fridge, remove tops)


kale - try out the potato scallion and kale cake recipe below. Also, don't forget that you can freeze kale.

(store in the fridge)


squash - we adore roasted squash.

(store in the fridge)


parsnips - have you tried parsnip soup?

(store in the fridge)
