this weeks harvest

Friday, October 2, 2009

One of my highlights during the week is picking up our CSA basket. This week was full of late summer bounty. It is hard to believe it is fall in Cardiff by the Sea when we are still eating with the doors open and there are strawberries in our basket.

Here are a few tips to make your fruits and veggies last...
1. For the lettuce I always seal it in bags and only wash the lettuce as I use it. There are great Ziploc produce bags {I found them at Costco} and I always reuse them.
2. For the carrots I put them in a regular gallon Ziploc with water. This seems to keep them perfectly crunchy all week.
3. For the Strawberries I pick out the ones that need to be eaten right away and the rest I lay in tupperware, with a paper towel, unwashed. This helps them last up to 4 days, although they are so good they are always gone before then.
