Door to Door Organics

Ack!  I ran out of storage space on Picasa.  Had to buy 20 GB of storage today.  So here are the pics I thought I couldn't post.

Today's delivery from Door to Door Organics:

Inside were two new to me items: a bunch of rapini and celery root.  Huh?  What to do with them?  Cmon -- someone has suggestions.

In addition I bought a couple of extra things.  Now, I don't want to see any wrinkled up faces.  I bought a pound of organic beef liver (oh, I can already hear the comments), some russet potatoes, and a couple of onions.  I can see a yummy skillet full of liver and onions and some whipped potatoes on the side.  Damn the cholesterol, full speed ahead!  I can see my iron count going up already.

I also bought Maggie more of the organic dog treats that she loves.  How do I know she loves them?  Oh, an owner knows when their pet adores their treats.

Funny, there was just an article in the paper on celery root, which I neglected to save. But suprised you haven't had rapini yet, otherwise known as broccoli rabe.

Wikipeida says: "Rapini has many spiked leaves that surround a green bud which looks very similar to a small head of broccoli. There may be small yellow flowers blooming from the buds, which are edible.

The flavor of rapini has been described as nutty, bitter, and pungent.

Rapini is a source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as potassium, calcium, and iron.[3]

A common preparation involves sauteing it with garlic over low heat for 10 - 15 minutes"
mmmmmmmmmm enjoy!!!!! Far more response than you ever wanted!!

My sister Renee sent me a Lidia recipe using the celery root with some apples. Now the rapini, I think my confusion stemmed from there not being any florets. Not sure how to use it.
