carrots – this carrot salad recipe looks good.

(Remove 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!

cucumbers – a mix of regular and lemon. They don’t actually taste like lemons, they get their name from the shape and colour.

(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)

 

dill head – this is for pickling! Make some pickled beans, cucumber, carrots, whatever you want!

(tuck it into a glass with an inch of water and keep on the counter)

 

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

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

sweet chocolate pepper – treat this like you would a green pepper.

(store in the fridge)

 

shishito peppers – they’re a finger-sized, thin walled pepper that is mostly on the sweet side but occasionally one will be spicy! See below for cooking instructions. We LOVE shishitos!!!

(store in the fridge in a plastic bag)
