Week of May 23rd

A reminder to anyone picking up their CSA boxes at a school. We do deliver year round, so please make sure to put your box on hold if you need to over the summer.

Tip of the week: If you need to store strawberries, i.e. you (or your kids) didn’t stuff them all into your mouth while you were putting away your veggies -here’s a great tip. Find an airtight container. Layer the strawberries in between a paper towel or tea cloth. Close the lid. They will keep in the fridge for a week + like this.

Tip of the week: Don’t have a spiralizer on hand? Never fear. There are ways you can create zucchini noodles without a spiralizer.

*Use a vegetable peeler. Apply light pressure with a vegetable peeler along the sides of the zucchini. You’ll end up with wide, fettuccine-like slices. Here’s a guide to peeling vegetables quickly, with no cut fingers!
*Use a knife. Carefully carve strips from the zucchini, working until you reach the core. These zoodles will look more rustic and have a thicker bite than peeled zukes.
*Use a grater. For a short, ricelike zucchini noodles, roughly shred the vegetable lengthwise against a box grater. Press away excess liquid.
Kitchen tip: With all the above methods, be sure to omit the soft seeded core of the zucchini or your zoodles will end up soft and mushy.
