Corn Tortillascorn-tortillas

From: All Souls Tortilleria (Certified Organic in Warren, VT)

All Souls makes its tortillas the authentic Mexican way—treating heirloom corn with limestone to create nixtamal, which is then stone-ground into masa. The upside of this traditional technique? Flavor, of course, but also nutrition: In addition to providing calcium, the limestone helps with the assimilation of niacin. Just remember to refrigerate these beauties, as they don’t contain the preservatives found in the standard grocery-store version. They’re also free of the gums that render mass-market tortillas pliable, so warm before serving.

CeleryCelery

From: Barber’s Farm (Organically Grown in Middleburgh, NY)

Celery grown by small farms isn’t the same thing as the stuff of grocery stores. Grill, marinate, braise, broil, stir-fry, or make into a soup. We love celery noodles! Use a vegetable peeler or paring knife to shave celery into thin strips, then steam sauté. To steam sauté, throw just-washed veggies into a hot pan, crank the heat, lid, and let the water wilt the veggies a little. After 3 minutes, de-lid, stir, then sauté as normal. Add tomato sauce and Parmesan. More info

Recipe Ideas:
Celery Stir-Fry
Hearty Celery Minestrone Soup
Pasta with Celery and Lemon
Celery Mint Salad

White Donut Peacheswhite-donut-peaches

From: Klein’s Kill Fruit Farm (Family Farm in Germantown, NY)

Also known as Saturn peaches, they are flatter than regular peaches and a lot less fuzzy. They are also sweeter and more flavorful. The sweetness is due to what is referred to as the honey gene, a dominant gene that is found in all Chinese peach varieties. More info

Black Beans, Parboiled
black beans

From: Vermont Bean Crafters (Certified Organic in Waitsfield, VT)

Parboiled certified organic black beans from Vermont Bean Crafters. Joe, Founder and Owner of Vermont Bean Crafters, soaks the beans overnight which begins an enzymatic process to release compounds just waiting to be energized. The net result of the soaking process makes the beans more digestible than if they were not soaked. Pretty cool, right? If they seem a bit hard, just add some water and boil to desired tenderness.

10-Minute Black Bean Tacos
