Amaranth
  • Description
    Dating back in history, amaranth seeds were the staple food of the Aztecs and have since been used across the culinary world for a variety of dishes. Amaranth leaves are most often enjoyed as a vegetable, though they're technically classified as an herb, and are cooked and served in a similar fashion to spinach. Their deep, earthy flavor and hearty, tender texture makes them a perfect ingredient for stir-fries, soups, and even simmered dishes.

    SPECIALTY

    Storing Rhubarb
    Rhubarb should last for about 4 days in the refrigerator's crisper. Keep it tightly wrapped in plastic. If you want to store it long term, wash, cut into the desired length, and place in an airtight container. It will keep in the freezer for about 9 months.

    Storing Fennel
    Fennel will keep for about 5 days if you store it in a plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper. Unless using fennel within a couple of days, trim off the stems and store them separately so they don't leach moisture from the bulb.

    Storing Chayote
    This squash should keep for up to 4 weeks when stored in a plastic bag in your refrigerator's vegetable drawer.

    Storing Tomatillo
    These fruits should keep for at least 2 weeks, and up to a month, when stored in a paper bag in your refrigerator's vegetable drawer. If you plan to use them within a couple of days, they will be fine on the countertop.

    Storing Okra
    To store okra, wrap it in a paper towel and tuck inside a paper bag, then place in the least cool section of the refrigerator. Try to use it soon after purchase, as okra is quite perishable. It should keep for 3 or 4 days.
