Delicious in chili or corn chowder, and for something out of the ordinary just add sautéed garlic and curry. This corn is so sweet that our favorite way to prepare is to boil in the bag and add butter and salt… tastes like it’s right off the cob. More info

Not just for soup! Thaw in a big bowl of warm water (you can place this for a few minutes in the microwave), then drain and press using paper towels to remove excess moisture. After, try lightly steaming or sautéing (with garlic, of course) and then chopping. The taste is mmm mmm good, and we still have some left in the freezer for unexpected company! More info

From: C&B Farms (Certified Organic), Clewiston, FL

Bright and crisp while raw, this cruciferous vegetable mellows when cooked. A little butter and salt over gently cooked cabbage goes a long way and pairs well with roasted meats. Raw cabbage is great for a kicker winter salad — add shredded cabbage to a bowl of hearty greens, then toss in salty cheese, crunchy nuts, and cranberries or roasted beets. More info

  1. I’m looking at the list this week and really don’t need or eat Delicious Apples. Can I substitute a small head of cabbage for this item?

    1. Hi Linda! Since the Red Delicious Apples are part of our weekly curated Fruit and Vegetable Bags, you can’t substitute out items in the bags. However, feel free to order any of our items as a one-time purchase instead of as a Fruit and Vegetable Bag. Please reach out to info@field-goods.com with any other questions!
