You are probably familiar with many of the vegetables in your share, but some may be new to you. Or you may not know just how good for you some of your favorite vegetables are! Over the years we’ve created a series of vegetable information pages designed to give you an overview of the history, nutritional value, and preparation methods for many of the vegetables we grow at Stearns Farm. This series was originally published in Stone Soup, Stearns Farm’s weekly newsletter. All the vegetable information pages were written by Donna Savastio, a dedicated foodie who was the newsletter’s volunteer recipe page editor from 2010 to 2011.
