How to Store your CSA Goodies
= Good for Canning /Pickling = Good for Cooking & Freezing = Good for Drying
Storing your produce properly will help you get the best value and flavor out of your CSA. Some items refer to the optional use of one of our favorite storage methods, the plastic shoebox, which maintains humidity, can be washed in the dishwasher, and can be used over and over unlike a ziplock or plastic bag.
We wash or rinse most of our veggies before they get to you and try to get everything as clean as possible. We suggest that you wash everything again right before eating to be sure that no dirt remains as we wash in large batches and occasionally you might find a dirty leaf. We do not spray anything on our plants that is harmful so washing is merely to remove dirt. All of our produce is safe to eat right off the plant (we snack on it every day!)
