November 18 Farm Delivery

This week's farm delivery (sans Bok Choy!) will contain the following:

Red Potatoes, Organic - 1.5 pounds
Full Circle Farm, Carnation, Washington.
Treviso Radicchio, Organic - 1 each
Full Circle Farm, Carnation, Washington.
A member of the chicory family, Treviso is a mild variety of radicchio that is shaped like an elongated cabbage with long purple leaves and thick white ribs. It has a firm texture with slightly bitter leaves. Wonderful when heated but can be eaten raw.

Green Kale, Organic - 1 bunch
Full Circle Farm, Carnation, Washington.
A descendant of the wild cabbage, kale is a cruciferous green widely prized for its wide variety of health benefits. Best braised to tenderness to retain nutrient value, kale has a slightly bitter earthy flavor that provides more nutrients per pound without the calories than any other vegetable.

Cremini Mushrooms, Organic - 0.4 pound
California Growers, California.


Occurring naturally in grasslands, fields and meadows across Europe and North America, Creminis were first cultivated in France, where they are known as "champignons de Paris." Picked young, they are Creminis. Left to grow, they are known as Portobellos, much larger and with a muskier flavor.
