Top Tips for Veggie Storage


The Elmwood Stock Farm online store is seeing an influx of veggies now that we’re progressing into warmer—and wetter—weather. Leafy greens are in abundance at the moment, and we’re hopeful to have radishes, hakurei turnips and beets available online soon, plus napa cabbage, sugar snap peas, kohlrabi, fennel and garlic scapes. It’s important to pay attention to the online store this time of year, as veggies start appearing quickly!


A top question we’re asked is not how to cook an item but how to store it for maximum freshness. We have our top tips for keeping your spring vegetable purchases in fresh condition. Click here to learn how to best store your leafy greens, Asian greens, root vegetables and more!










This Week's Recipe

One-Pot Penne with Sausage and Arugula


1 T. olive oil

1 package Italian sausage links, casings removed

1 medium yellow onion, sliced thin

4 cloves of garlic or green garlic stalks, chopped

leaves from 6 sprigs of fresh oregano

1 tsp. salt

1/4 c. dry white wine

2 T. lemon juice

1 bag arugula

8 oz. penne pasta

grated Parmesan cheese, for serving


Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add sausage and brown, using a spatula to break it up as it cooks. Add onion, garlic, oregano and salt. Once sausage is browned, add wine and lemon juice, and stir, scraping browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Add arugula in batches to cook it down.


Add uncooked penne to the pan, and stir. Add enough water so pasta is almost covered (about 2½ cups). Bring to a boil and cook, stirring frequently, for 15 to 20 minutes or until almost all of the liquid is absorbed and the pasta is tender. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese.
