December 13th produce

Good morning everyone! Can you believe I made it to the terminal in this weather. Actually, it’s not so bad because it’s a straight shot down Shaker Blvd. Since it’s so cold again, if you are picking up your box, ring the doorbell and I will open the garage.

This week I decided to change things up a bit and I got artichokes and bananas. If your bananas seem to be taking a long time to ripen, put them in a paper bag with an apple. (Some organic bananas aren’t gassed with ethylene to promote ripening like conventional bananas.) Each box got either broccoli or 2 extra artichokes. When you pick up a box, you can pick which you like better.

This week 2nds are apples.

I have a few extra dozen eggs, so let me know if you want any before they are gone.

Below is a recipe for your artichokes. If you want to make it a little healthier, substitute some tahini for mayonaise. I plan on using only 1-2 T of tahini and thinning it down to the consistency of mayo.
