Transcript for Fall into delicious produce of the new season
Autumn is here, it's time to stock up on the best produce of the season. Dietitian dietitian and nutritionist Maya feller joins us from a Brooklyn farmers market to break down what to buy. I recognize that farmers market. We live in the same neighborhood. It's our neighborhood. Love it. Let's start with the fall, delicious produce, what's currently in season? So all those cruciferous vegetables we know and love. Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage they are live and delicious. We also have the leafy greens, the heavy ones, kale, collard, Swiss chard, super, super wonderful. We absolutely cannot forget those fall fruits, apples, Pears and figs, everything is so scrumptious. We have giant figs this morning. Once we load up at the goodies at the farmers market, talk to us about storage. How do you store these things? So storage is super important. These days I have actually been storing my cruciferous vegetables in the refrigerator in brown paper bags. I'm finding that they last a little bit longer. I'm getting them to stay up to 20 days. Things like carrots and garlic, those last a really long time in cool storage. Interestingly enough, so do apples. The thing about apples is they emit this gas, ethylene, so you want to be sure to store them away from other foods as they can make those foods spoil faster. Items like onions, they can last a really really long time, especially when you store them under 50 degrees. I've had onions that lasted almost a year at one point. We eventually had to throw those out. They start to sprout. Yeah, they start to grow their own little friends. You also remind people not to forget about the fresh herbs. That's something else to look for this time of year. Oh, my goodness, the fresh herbs this time of year can bring any dish that you're making to another level. They just really add this excellent flavor. So things like sage and rosemary, thyme, they go so well when you're roasting and braising and just cooking on the stove. It also adds a huge amount of nutrients to whatever dish you're preparing. A roast this time of year, the warm goodies in the oven. That's what we want when it starts to cool off. Imagine, those carrots, onions, garlic, all mixed up to together with fresh herbs, it's really delicious. Thank you, Maya, great advice.
