Eating from the Farmstand Locavore Bag April 17th – April 19th

Standard

ImageWe try to mix and match recipes so you have ideas for the entire bag.  The items often play well together so be creative.  If a recipe calls for a scallion consider trying the bunching onion, a red beet could possibly be substituted for gold.  Greens are often interchangeable too.  Recipes may not call for specific items but that doesn’t mean something tasty shouldn’tbe added.  The goal is to enjoy your Farmstand Locavore Bag and get the most out of all it has to offer.
