CauliflowerHOW TO STORE CAULIFLOWER

  • Refrigerate raw, whole cauliflower in a plastics bag, leaving it unwashed until right before you use it. Store it stem side down to prevent any moisture from pooling around the edible bits. It should keep for about a week.

STOCK YOUR PANTRY | STAPLES

Our Locavore Boxes come with almost everything you need to make delicious meals at home. To save on box cost, packaging, and food waste we generally do not include common pantry items in your box. 

Below we list our common pantry items in order from most to least often needed as pantry items in our recipes:

  • Butter and Cooking Oils: Vegetable oils, and high heat oils such as avocado and safflower, and non-dairy butter alternatives such as ghee.
  • Salt and Pepper: The staple among staples!
  • Broth*: Vegetable, Beef, or Chicken. Stock can generally be considered interchangeable.
  • Mayo
  • Salad Fixings: In order to use our box budget to add more value to your meals, we sometimes leave the side salad up to you (but we’ll usually provide the leafy greens!). Make your own salad creation, or order our Salad Kit along with your box to add simplicity and deliciousness!
  • Soy Sauce
  • Garlic*
  • Sweeteners: Honey, Maple Syrup, Sugar, Agave, Brown Sugar

  • Beer: A good guideline for cooking with beer is lighter beer for lighter meals and heavy beer for heavy meals.
