Beachwood Canyon Pick-up

Here's what Farmer John had for us at the Beachwood Canyon pick-up today:

Daikon radishes - eaten raw, grated, like a radish (pic above)

Beets - tops edible too - saute or steam with chard

Arugula - flowers edible too, strip the leaves off the stems

Russian kale - saute or steam

fresh garlic - you can use all of it - bulb, stem, leaves - all edible


Fennel - wonderful grated in a salad

Baby Bok Choi

Dandelion greens - saute or steam

Chrysanthemum leaves - used in soups in Korea and Japan - also eaten raw in a salad (pictured below)

Wildfire Lettuce

Green Chard

Young lettuce in a bag

Storage advice: Wash and dry greens when you get home. Dry using a salad spinner. Chop the greens. Store in tupperware containers with a piece of paper towel on the bottom. This helps soak up any excess moisture. Store in fridge.
