- Fennel: Your fennel this week comes with some of it’s fronds attached. Florence style fennel like this is cultivated for their bulbous and succulent root, although their greens are edible and delicious used as an herb, too. Fennel bulb can be eaten either cooked or raw, and the entire bulb can be eaten except for the tough stem at the base. It has a slightly sweet flavor similar to anise or licorice, but a bit milder and with a pleasant crunch like celery.
- Fresh Garlic: You will notice your garlic this week is more mature with more pronounced clove development then that you received the first week. Treat it as you would cured (dried) garlic, peeling off the outer layer to expose the clove. Store fresh garlic in the refrigerator as it has not been cured for shelf stable storage.
- Kale, Lacinato: Also known as dinosaur kale, this is a black Italian kale variety with deep, blue green ovular leaves. A wonderful, healthful, and cold-hardy crop, kale will be in your share frequently in the early summer and again in the fall.
