Happy August, the summer is flying by! Hope everyone is enjoying themselves and enjoying their bags of produce. Please keep us updated with any comments/suggestions at either email@example.com or you can post on our Facebook page.
In this week’s bag we have:
- Maunawili Greens lettuce,
- Green Growers tomatoes,
- Nalo Farms Nalo mizuna
- Apple Bananas from Pit Farms,
- Kahuku Cornl from Pit Farms, &
- Long Beans from Ho Farms
Some of you may be wondering what mizuna is and what to do with it. According to Wikipeida, its a vegetable with leaves that are green and yellow, smooth in texture and somewhat feathery in shape. It is available as a mature green or as a baby version that is smaller in size and more tender in texture. As a salad green mizuna can be steamed, boiled, stir-fried or used to complement other greens mixed together for a salad. When cooked it shrinks to about half its size so it takes a large amount to make a cooked vegetable dish containing only mizuna.
