In this week's delivery, we decided to support a few of our favorite local farms! Shishito Peppers from Bodhitree Farm, some mixed micros from Two Guys at Woodbridge, and Esmee arugula from Brooklyn Grange.
The mushrooms of the week are blue oyster mushrooms and king trumpet mushrooms, in addition to a mushroom cocoa surprise from Wooden Spoon Herbs. To enjoy the mushroom cocoa, mix the entire container of mushroom cocoa with 2 oz of boiling water and stir until smooth. Top with 6 oz of your choice of mylk and serve either hot or cold with ice cubes. Mix to combine for a lovely, mushroom cocoa latte.
The smoothies of the week are Red or Dead, Carrot Cake, and Orange flower. The full list of ingredients can be found here.
This week's surprise is shishito peppers from Bodhitree Farm in Brown Mills, NJ. Bodhitree Farm is one of the most beautiful farms at the Wednesday Morning Greenmarket at Union Square. Delicately laid out on white table cloths, the wide variety of specialty produce and predominantly Asian vegetables from Bodhitree Farm is a sight not to be missed! Nevia, the spiritual gardener of Bodhitree Farm was one of the first farmers to sell shishito peppers at the NY Greenmarkets. Enjoy these grilled, blistered, roasted, or pan-fried. Every 10 to 20 of these peppers can be very hot!
