Stinging Nettles, Greengage Plums & Equinox Farm Mesclun

Market Update

Pomegranates are done for the season, as are most heirloom apples and winter squashes.  Fresh cranberries and chestnuts are done. Feel free to put Equinox mesclun, now in, back on your menu, as supply is strong.  Their pea shoots, which are limited, are young, delicious and tender–no need to cook them.  The mandarins from Rising C are now “Tango.”  Satsuma and Paige are done for the season.  Black trumpet mushrooms are winding down quickly.  Morels are a few weeks away, and the first of the season are always the priciest, so best bet is to wait it out.  First of the season stinging nettles are in.  If you’re thinking nettles on a pizza or flatbread, talk to us about grains: we have local buckwheat, rye, spelt, whole wheat and all-purpose flours.  By the time you think about a greengage plum dish to put on the menu, they could be gone.  Take advantage now, and verbal it.  They come and go quickly.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out the coarse red flint Floriani grits, from Keisler’s Mill, they’re easy to try before making a big commitment: they come in 18 oz bags, and they’re truly special.  Fifty pounds left for the season.
