This Week's Featured Produce


Featured Produce of the Week 1-23-12

Handle this delicate fruit with care, as they become very soft when ripe. What lies beneath the large, egg-sized, fuzzy brown skin is a wealth of brilliant, jade-green flesh. Kiwis have a juicy, slightly tart flavor reminiscent of melon and fresh berries. Kiwis have more Vitamin C than citrus and can be used in marinades as a meat tenderizer. Beautiful and eye-catching when sliced and used as a garnish, the crunchy, tiny black seeds add a wonderful texture to any dish!

DUTCH YELLOW® BABY POTATOES

Melissa's Baby Dutch Yellow® Potatoes (DYP's) are round with distinct yellowish-white skins. These baby potatoes can be cooked in almost any way imaginable and provide a delicious way to round out a healthy diet. They have a light, subtle flavor and a creamy texture. To preserve the nutrients in these wonderfully healthy treats, leave the skins on and simply scrub gently in water before using.
  

This newer California grown variety tangerine is smaller than typical varieties. It is a cross between a Minneola tangelo and a Clementine. They are flavorful and extremely sweet and juicy. They are grown in an area where the days are warm and the nights are cool, producing the ideal weather conditions for this delicious fruit. Available December to January.
