Garlic Scapes

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

Garlic scapes are the immature flower stalks of garlic. They are harvested early in the spring to help garlic grow, but are available only a few weeks at that time- so get them while you can! Their flavor is very similar to garlic but without the garlic “bite”.

Red and Green Mizuna

From: Markristo Farm (Certified Organic in Hillsdale, NY)

Mizuna is an Asian green similar to arugula, but less spicy. Mizuna makes great bedding for meat and chicken as it has a nice crunch and peppery kick. We recommend that you also toss it in with your salad mix or try as a pesto. Can be cooked or eaten raw.

Bunched Carrots

From: Migliorelli Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Tivoli, NY)

Carrot

You can’t beat freshly harvested spring carrots for sweetness and crunch. This time of year, we think they are best eaten raw but wether you roast or steam you will love them. Cut the greens off to use for pesto or as you would parsley. Removing the tops will also keep your carrots crispy   More info

English Shelling Peas

From: Migliorelli Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Tivoli, NY)

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
