This week we have a lovely Autumn basket for you. Apples from Oak Creek Apples in Sedona are an extra special treat. Rob Lautze has been maintaining a number of orchards in Oak Creek Canyon for decades. He puts so much love and dedication into producing the best organic apples and we are so happy to share them with you. We also have leeks and potatoes this week, the perfect combo for potato leek soup! Whipstone Farm’s potatoes do require refrigeration to maintain their freshness, and are best if eaten quickly. They are not cured for long term storage, which is why they come in a plastic bag for refrigerator storage. And last but not least, we have purple green beans. These beans are purple when fresh, but turn green once cooked. They are beautiful and delicious, so we hope you enjoy them!
Have a wonderful week.
