Stop the press!
1.) The nobbly roots in this week’s boxes are not ginger. They are jerusalem artichokes. These are a nutty flavoursome root vegetable.
2.) You absolutely do not have to peel them. Just give them a scrub under the tap.
3.) For recipe ideas, see Cook Your Box. Enjoy!
Make sure the future generation knows where their food comes from…

Known as scallions in the U.S., this week our Small, Medium, Large, and Veg Only customers will be treated to a healthy dose of shallots in their box. Incredibly abundant in Vitamin K – the mysterious vitamin – Rita’s shallots will give you a lovely hint of the onion flavour you love in doses that won’t send you rushing for chewing gum. Shallots are pretty happy-go-lucky as far as vegetables go, they tolerate light sauteing, go easily into salads, and make great bedfellows with eggs in dishes such as quiches, omelets, and scrambled eggs.
