Hi Oahu Fresh family! We’re excited for warming temperatures and sunny days…those really help our farmers out. While rain is also needed, some crops like tomatoes are very difficult to grow with inconsistent sunshine. Keep your fingers crossed that more sunny weather will result in slicing tomatoes in the near future!
In the meantime we have a bag full of yumminess this week. We’re bringing you collard greens from Ho Farms, hydroponic organic lettuce from Mari’s Garden, mushrooms from Small Kine Farm, string beans from Pacific Gateway Farmers, green onions from Green Growers, and chico fruit from Jolene Jackson, Waianae farmer.
Have you had chico before? It’s an amazing fruit, also known as sapodilla, with texture like a pear and a brown sugar flavor. It makes a wonderful dessert fruit!
How to Saute Mushrooms Make the most of your locally grown ‘shrooms by cooking them perfectly…they can be added to eggs, steak, pasta, greens…any number of items!
Green Bean Salad with Basil and Capers This is a unique approach to green beans, and if you don’t have basil right now I am sure you can leave it out.
What do you have your collard greens with? Let us hear from you!
