English Shelling Peas

From:  Sonny Boy (Integrated Pest Management  in Georgia)

After you shell these peas, do not eat the shells! They’re too tough to eat, so we like to save them for stock instead. We consider it a travesty to eat these anyway but raw. If you feel you must cook them, put in boiling water for a couple minutes. Peas and mint pair well together. Melt butter, then mix in finely chopped mint and add to peas. More info

Asian Pears

From: Hepworth Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Milton, NY)

Asian pears look very similar to apples and have a golden skin with white flesh. While they may look similar to apples, they taste like delicious pears. They are a fruit delicacy.  . They are best raw, and you can serve them with cheese or sliced on top of a salad. We love using our chompers to bite right into these tasty golden orbs!

Sweet potatoes chopped into rice size pieces. To prepare: add olive oil, butter, or ghee to a hot pan and cook until slightly crispy or about 15-20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and voila! Sautéed sweet potato rice has a texture that is soft but also slightly crisp and has the intense sweetness of a slow roasted whole sweet potato.

From: Agbotics (Organically Grown in Watertown, NY)

Choke-full of vitamins and minerals, these young beet greens taste similar to swiss chard. Boil uncovered until tender (1-2 min.), immerse in cold water, then chop and sauté with garlic just until the leaves are hot. You can also add them to salad.

  2. Hi there, is the sweet potato rice for just those that are a part of the carb-conscious bags, or is it for standard as well?

    1. Hello Melquea! The sweet potato rice is for the Family, Standard, and Small bags. It is not included in the Single or the Carb-Conscious bags. Hope that helps! Please reach out to info@field-goods.com with any questions.

  3. This was my first time getting a bag and the items are completely different than listed. I’m interested in the recipes that were mentioned on the paper in the bag.

    1. Hello Sharon! I’ve just passed your concern to Customer Service. They will reach out soon to follow up about this situation. Welcome to the Field Goods family!

  4. Is there sweet potato rice in the bag? I see it in the at a glance section but not in the detailed descriptions. Thanks!

  5. Hi, one of the main reasons I signed up for Field Goods was to get produce from local farms and save myself a trip to the farmer’s markets. It seems more and more of the produce is coming from farther and farther away. Can you guys implement a distance filter for products or at least provide more information on the farms you are sourcing? I shouldn’t have to research each and every product to know where it’s coming from.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Kyle! Since we receive many requests for including more fresh produce (even when it’s seasonally available regionally but not locally), and so we did the math on adding non-local items. If someone ordered because of one non-local product, we would sell at least 5 local products that we would not have sold otherwise. That’s great for our local farmers!

      Also, I’ve just passed along your request for a distance filter to the web development team. At this time I can’t tell you if and when that will be implemented. In the meantime, on our website we list the farm and its geographical location for each week’s spread. Please reach out to info@field-goods.com with any questions. Thanks!
