Week 10: What’s in the box?

Fresh Red Potatoes
Delicious summer potatoes, freshly dug!  This is a waxy variety that holds up well in potato salads.
Storage: In an airtight container/bag in the refrigerator. Uses: CookedWhen to use: Within 5 days.

Sweet Corn
The best, organic sweet corn!  Conventional corn is heavily sprayed with pesticides, so you really should always look for organic corn.  (Please note that you may have a visitor at the tip of the corn – a corn earworm!  They love to eat the tip of the corn, so just discard and cut off the tip if there is any brown damage. THIS IS NORMAL FOR ORGANIC CORN.  We can’t see from the outside if there has been a worm inside or not.  If the damage extends down into the ear, just let us know and we’ll send you a replacement ear.  Don’t toss the whole ear if there is a little damage on one end.  Organic corn is so hard to grow, so please don’t waste any good part of it!  Savor it and enjoy!)
How to cook: Boil a pot of water.  Shuck the corn (remove the husks).  Cut off any earworm damage with a sharp knife.  Turn off the heat and put the corn in the pot of boiled water and cover for 3-4 minutes.  It’s done!
