What was in those baskets on May 5th

6 05 2012


This weeks basket had lettuce, artichokes, beets, tomatoes, apples, potatoes, strawberries, oranges, mangos, pineapple, jicama, and bananas.

For those of you that haven’t had fresh artichokes before the easiest way to eat them is to cut the stem off and steam them until the base is fork tender. Then peel the leaves off and dip in garlic butter, mayo, or any other of your favorite dressing.
