Aloha Oahu Fresh family! This week’s bag has us really excited–it’s bursting with color and flavor! You’ll be receiving fresh organic beets from Kahumana Farm, string beans and japanese cucumbers from Pacific Gateway farmers, organic rosemary, clementines, and avocados from Kama`aina Land Plant Rentals & Nursery, butternut squash from Ho Farms, and beautiful late season slicing tomatoes from Green Growers.
Also don’t throw away those beautiful greens on the tops of your beets! Use them like you would swiss chard or in the following recipe to get an idea: Beet Greens Recipe
Rosemary and Garlic Roasted Potatoes Use the fresh rosemary from your bag for this recipe and you’ve got some wonderful potatoes to go with a steak, chicken, or a fresh salad!
From WellnessMama.com: My favorite natural air-freshener is to put a small handful of Rosemary Leaf, 1 sliced lemon or orange, and a splash of vanilla into a sauce pot and simmer on low all day (watch the water levels)- It smells amazing and freshens the house for days.
Enjoy this week’s fresh locally grown produce, and please let us know what you’re making! Recipes from other members can be found on our Facebook page…so “Like” us and spread the word!!
