Fresh Ginger

GingerWe have a special treat in our bin this week — fresh ginger from Sunsplash Farm of New Smyrna Beach. We are very excited as this is the first time we have added ginger to our bins. Ginger is the root of the Zingiber officinale plant and is best know as a culinary spice and it’s medicinal properties. It has been used to help digestion, ease stomach aches, and they say heal wounds. However, this week we are just going to provide you with a few culinary creations!

Local Bin (Mini): (Red Baby Bok Choy, Kohlrabi, Strawberries, Yellow Squash, Red Potatoes), Ginger, Sweet Peppers, Organic Carrots.

Making Substitutions

Have no fear! If you do not like on our our selected items in your regular sized organic or local bin, you have the choice to remove it and double another item that’s already in the bin or make a substitution. And if you have too many veggies, the great news is that you can always select French Pantry Baguettes as one of your substitutions! Find step by step instructions in our blog post.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Returning your bin clean and undamaged means that we can use it again and again. This keeps costs down, minimizes landfill waste and keeps your carbon footprint smaller. Bins that aren’t returned will incur a replacement fee, so be sure to put it out for pickup!
