Notes from the GEOF farmhouse kitchen…

Another fabulous share this week!

Red Tomatoes – The beefsteak tomatoes are here!  These plants were seeded way back in May and it took all this time for them to grow and produce fruit.  Enjoy!
Storage: On the counter. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use: Now!

Sungold Cherry Tomatoes &. Blush Cocktail Tomatoes – These little guys are perfect to pop in your mouth or throw in your favorite salad, Yum!
Storage: On the counter. Uses: Raw When to use: Now!

Zucchini – We’re now harvesting from our last zucchini planting. Enjoy them while they last.
Storage: In an airtight (plastic) bag in the refrigerator. Uses: Cooked. When to use: Within a week.

Nicola Potatoes –  These are a wonderful, waxy potato variety.  Perfect texture for salads or roasting!
Storage: In a cool, DARK place.  Uses: Cooked When to use: Within a week

Onions –  These are semi-storage yellow onions.  They willl store for a few weeks in a cool, dry place, but I would recommend using them sooner.  They’re so good fresh.
Storage: In a cool, dry spot. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use: Within a week

Peppers – These are green frying peppers.  They are not hot!  I love using them in stir-fries, but they are also great cut up and dipped in hummus, in salads, stuffed…

Red Batavian Lettuce – Rounding out the share nicely with another head of lettuce this week.
