Hey Ho! We have been trying to have this baby for three years now and each time it gets far too large and becomes a gangling grown-up. Today, after an inch of rain on top of saturated soil and 30 mph winds our darlings will be harvested by our intrepid farmers!
Mild and sweet baby boks are perfect for a quick saute or an added fresh crunch to a salad. Slice them in half, quickly sauteed with a bit of oil, garlic and soy sauce, maybe some fresh ginger and a pinch of red pepper – yum! They can be as a side dish or add some protein for a topping with rice.
From field to mouth – the highest nutrient benefits! Good quantities of vitamins C, A, K..(there should be an E here ;), folate and minerals: calcium, phosphorus and potassium. The calorie price tag is very low, good amount of fiber and of course a delicious munch.
Along with the baby bok choy there will be farm share choices of: leeks, last week’s salad mix, onions, celery, beets, cabbage, turnips, radishes, winter squash, garlic, potatoes, Brussels sprouts and a sample of our very own hazelnuts! I hope everyone is impressed, I am, every time I have a munch.
