Introducing FreshJax Products to our Store!

In 2010 husband and wife team, Jason and Hillary, committed to love themselves enough to live healthier and happier for 30 days. Those 30 days turned into weeks, months, and years of healthy living. Inspired to share the health and happiness we had found with others, they started cooking up ideas in the kitchen and sharing with friends and family. Their business started with hot sauces and now includes energy bars, nut & seed butters, mustards, spices, trail mixes and coconut “bacon”. Yes, I said coconut “bacon”! Check out their delicious products in our store under Spreads & Toppings.

Veggie Unearthed: Bok Choy


Your Bok Choy came to you from Hoover Farm in Live Oak, FL — less than 150 miles from most of our customers.

Bok Choy is classified as a cabbage, but it doesn’t look or taste much like round green cabbage. The crisp, sweet white stalks can be chopped and cooked right along with the tender, loosely bunched greens. High in vitamins A and C, potassium and calcium, it’s a great addition to any meal as an appetizer, side dish or incorporated into an entree. You can use your bok choy in any baby bok choy recipe, but you may need to add a few minutes to your cooking time or cut it into smaller pieces to be sure it gets tender.

To store, we strongly suggest that you wrap the bok choy in a damp paper towel, then a plastic bag. The damp paper towel will keep the leaves hydrated. Place the bag in your crisper and use it within 2-3 days for best results. As with any tender greens, the sooner you use it, the better it will be.
Prepping bok choy is simple, but be certain to thoroughly wash the leaves, especially the lower stems, as grit can get trapped there during growth. Plunging the cut leaves into cold water and giving them a thorough rub & swish should do the trick. This is another great time to have a salad spinner!
