Sugar Snap Peas

From: Holmquest Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Hudson, NY)

Sugar snap peas are all about texture, sweetness, and crunch. They don’t take long to cook—1 to 2 minutes max. Resist overcooking—you’ll end up with sad, limp peas. Cut your snaps in thirds crosswise, or halve lengthwise on a long diagonal. Cut them before or after steaming. If boiling, cut them afterwards or else the tumbling action of boiling water will free the peas from their pods. Enjoy raw for a snack. More info

Bunched Spring Onions

From: Barber Farm (Organically Grown)

Spring onions have long, green, delicate stalks with golf-sized onion bulbs. Spring onions are sweeter and mellower than regular onions, but the greens have a more flavor than scallion greens.  Like scallions, spring onions can be used raw or cooked. Because raw spring onions are pungent, taste to make sure their flavor does not overpower more delicate flavors. You can slice raw spring onions thinly onto green salads.

One Comment on “In Your Bag: Week of June 17th”

  1. Good morning,
    Since I am receiving an “In the bag”, I am assuming that you have me down for a delivery on this Thursday, 6/20. I did put a hold on this delivery so just wanted to check to be sure a bag was not coming for me today. The location has been changed as of this week and I don’t want to have my deliveries left outside in the heat over the summer. The last time this happened you said I have until Monday to cancel.
    Thank you so much. I look forward to the time when our regular delivery location is back at Montclair Kimberley. Have a great summer!
    Rosemary Rehus
