Scallions

0 comments

Also known as "green onions" or "bunching onions," scallions have a mild onion flavor and are delicious raw or cooked.

Storage

 

Store scallions in the fridge for a week or more.

Cooking Tips

When cooking with scallions, try to use the whole plant. Slice the green & white parts thinly for ginger scallion sauce, curries, grain bowls, or vegetable fried rice (see recipes below). Macerate the white part in vinegar or lemon juice before making a buttermilk dressing. Use the green part in place of chives. Or cook scallions whole: cut off the roots, toss with olive oil or butter and salt, and grill, saute or roast on high heat until tender and beginning to brown. We call these “skillet scallions,” and typically eat a whole pan-full!

  • We grow a mix of sweet Italian roasting peppers and sweet bell peppers. Storage Peppers like to be cool but not cold. Ripe peppers will keep for about five days in the a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Since they are ethylene sensitive, try to store them away from ethylene-producing fruit which will make them spoil faster. Once roasted, put them in a jar with olive oil and keep them in the refrigerator for weeks, if not longer. Roasted peppers also freeze well in ziploc bags. Cooking Tips Roasting peppers are delicious raw or cooked. You can stuff peppers with seasoned whole grains or meat; stew them as a topping for toast, tacos, or a grain bowl; or roast or grill them before making a Romesco sauce or homemade pimento cheese. They’re also delicious in Shakshuka or in an Italian egg & pepper sandwich.

  • America's favorite vegetable. (I mean, fruit?) Storage Important: never put tomatoes in the fridge. They’ll keep their flavor and texture best if you leave them out on your kitchen counter. They should keep on the counter for up to 5 days. If you want to preserve some for the winter, slow roast them with plenty of olive oil, garlic, and herbs (see confit recipe below, for full size tomatoes, just let roast for longer) and put them in a ziploc bag or jar in the freezer. Or simply cut out the stem and freeze the tomatoes whole. When you need a tomato or two for sauce or soups in the winter, pull them out, run them under warm water and the skin will peel right off! Cooking Tips Most of our tomatoes wind up being eaten sliced with some coarse salt, maybe atop an open-faced tomato sandwich. But if you find yourself wanting to get more creative, the possibilities are endless. Add them into any salad, make gazpacho, fresh salsa, a simple pasta sauce or tomato pie.
