How to care for your items this week:
Onions, peppers, cabbage, squashes and cucumbers can all be stored in the crisper. The cabbage and the onions will last for about 3-5 weeks, while everything else should be used sooner. Cilantro should either be placed in a cup of water in the fridge, or wrapped in a damp paper towel and kept in the fridge. The kohlrabi can be stored for weeks in the crisper as well, but it is best to remove the greens from them first. The greens are eatable, and should be treated like a collard green. Poblano peppers are overall sweet in flavor, with just a little bit of heat. Eggplant should be stored in the crisper as well, and it best used when very fresh.
