How Do You Prep Your Produce?
How do you prepare your Space Girl Organics Produce when your box arrives? Here is how Christine F. preps her produce (especially her greens) and they stay fresh all week long (or longer)!
I cut the greens off my carrots (and put them aside for my guinea pig). I washed my carrots, cut them and bagged them. I cut a bit of the stems off my spinach, washed it, spun it in my salad spinner and wrapped it in a dish towel to go in my crisper. I chopped, washed and spun my lettuce and arugula and wrapped them both in dish towels to keep in my crisper. Now, everything is in my fridge, clean and ready to be used! Because I cleaned my green and gave them a bit of moisture and then protected them with a towel, they will stay crisp fresh at least a whole week!! Total prep time took me about 10 minutes.
Florida produce is in full swing!!! This week our essentials, standard, and all veggies boxes are 100% Florida produce this week.
Bok, Bok…. Choy. Bok Choy is from the cabbage family and is often used in Chinese cooking. Its light flavor makes it great for adding it to soups or stir fry. It is also great thrown on the BBQ grill (pictured)! To grill your bok choy slice a small piece off of the bottom and wash the stalks. Place it on an oiled preheated grill (medium-high heat). Brush it lightly with olive oil or seasoned butter and close the grill. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, flip, brush the other side with the oil of your choice and repeat. After plating, you can dress it with a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
