Looks like I’ve got my work cut out for me!

Today I received my first organic co-op share via the Organic Buying Club of South Florida. The way it works is you join a group in your area, usually as a substitute so you can try it out before deciding to commit. And once every two weeks you pick up a bunch of organic veggies, aka your share, from the group host.

I’m super excited. I just need to figure out how to cook this stuff. I got A LOT of greens and I don’t want them to go bad. If anyone can recommend any recipes for green chard and cabbage (at least I think it’s cabbage), please let me know.

Kiwi berries! I'd never heard of these before.

I see stuffed mushrooms in my future.

I know this is probably weird, but I've never eaten a pear before. First time for everything, eh?

Also…what is this?! I don’t even know!

Can someone tell me wtf this is and what I'm supposed to do with it?

Should be interesting. I’ll let you guys know what I come up with. And seriously, recipes…give them to me!

    It’s a parsnip! Roast it with the carrots and potatoes and make a root veggie soup ^_^

    And yes, that is cabbage. Make stuffed cabbage rolls, weee!

      I had a FEELING it was a parsnip! Stuffed cabbage rolls sound good. I was going to try sauteing the chard, but I’m worried it’ll be slimy. I steamed it and it was meh.

        Chard’s pretty sturdy, unlike spinach, so it shouldn’t turn out slimy when sauteed.
