  1. >I think the hair/frond parts are good chopped up for seasoning in salad or pasta – a little bit of a licorice flavor. We sauted the sliced up bulb part and tossed it with pasta and tomatoes and sausage and parmesan cheese – yum! Hope this helps – there were some pretty easy recipes on the cooking light website too….

  2. >Hi Shelley — I appreciate that you held off on the peaches since they were not ripe but when they arrived (8.19) they were bruised and over-ripe. Is there any chance of getting the fruit earlier so that we have some time to work with it before the fruit flies descend?

  3. >The peaches were beautiful and perfect when I brought them home. I carefully pack them into the bags/boxes as I arrive at each drop-site for Seattle people to avoid bruising. If they were bruised at the farm, I’m not sure what happened, unless you got my box of #2 fruit for the freezer. Let me know how much damage there was and I’ll get some replacements.
