Spring Begins

Market Updates: First of the season Knoll Farm Green Garlic and Stinging Nettles arrive Saturday.  Greengage plums are over.  Cool new things: Baby Red Mizuna from Lakeville.  On the pod, super fresh, quarter-sized leaves.  Baby (ish) Pink Treviso– about half the size of regular red treviso, same oblong shape, beautiful half-pink, half-pale green leaves.  Speaking of chicories, we continue to have the excellent Radicchio di Castelfranco, and we are also doing our own house mix of Heirloom Chicories, and it’s a jewel box of cool things like tardivo, pink radicchio, red endive, Castelfranco and more.  Muscat Grapes are here.  Heirloom citrus continues, but the lineup has changed, see below.

From the Pantry: Yuzu Togarashi is the jam.  Think single-source, mixed by the grower in Japan, with a yuzu-peel dominant profile.   Outstanding partner to some of the new spring veg coming in.
