Produce Report: Popping into Spring..Early!

Hello all and Happy Tuesday! We are super pumped for this week’s deliveries. We are especially excited for a good sign spring will be here soon..artichokes! Artichoke origins date back to the time of the Greek philosopher and naturalist, Theophrastus (371-287 B.C.), who wrote of them being grown in Italy and Sicily. And they’ve been delicious ever since!

Baked, fried, sautéed, grilled, stewed, pickled, steamed…you name it, an artichoke is great prepared that way! See all these artichoke recipes. Enjoy these!

We are also very excited to have spinach back! A true powerhouse in the world of produce, spinach is packed with nutrients and tastes great. With the perfect amount of delicacy and heartiness, spinach goes great with just about any meal. Try it in the morning with your eggs or in a shake to get your day off to a right start!

While you are preparing for the day, don’t forget this week’s bunch of Minneola Tangelos! A fan and warehouse favorite, Carolyn says they are “super delicious, and make the best Margaritas.” Take them as a snack, throw them in a salad, or shake up your beverages. This little citrus is fantastic!

And lastly, rounding out our spotlight this week, another favorite is back: baby bok choy. Much more versatile than imagined, baby bok choy allows for fun and experimenting in the kitchen. Try out a new bok choy recipe and post it on our Facebook page!
