What’s in the box this week?

Standard Shares include

  • Oranges - Oranges can be stored at room temperature for several days or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

  • Cilantro - The plant is native to regions spanning from southern Europe and northern Africa to southwestern Asia, which helps explains its presence in so many different cuisines.

  • Dino Kale - This type of kale is particularly well suited to braising in a bit of broth—simply heat a pan, add a little bit of broth, add the cleaned and chopped kale, cover, and cook over gentle heat until the leaves are wilted and tender.

  • Scarlet Queen Turnips - The start of this week’s recipe!

  • Leeks - Fresh leeks should be stored unwashed and untrimmed in the refrigerator, where they will keep fresh for between one and two weeks. Wrapping them loosely in a plastic bag will help them to retain moisture.

    Egg Shares include eggs from our certified organic, pasture-raised, happy hens.

  • 2 teaspoons honey

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

  • Pepper

  • 4 small turnips, about 5 ounces, peeled
