Community Food Distribution Project Supplement #4

Each week, when we deliver local produce and groceries to over 300 local households though the Community Food Distribution Project, we are including a handout with some recipes and cooking tips that include items in the box and a family activity generated by the Grow Food Kids team to try.

For past CFDP Supplements LOOK HERE.

Here is a PDF version of this week’s supplement in English and Spanish.

 

This week’s recipes are:

This week’s Grow Food Kids activity:

Let’s grow carrot tops! Carrot tops make pretty plants for a sunny window and their fern-like foliage will eventually bloom white lace-like flowers.

Growing Carrot Tops

  1. Cut the top from a carrot. You’ll need about one inch of the root part (the widest part of the carrot).
  2. Stick a toothpick into both sides of the carrot piece and balance it on top of a small glass. 
  3. Fill the glass with water up to and barely touching the bottom edge of your carrot top. Set the glass in a light, but not sunny window. 
  4. Add water as needed to keep it touching the edge of your carrot and watch the roots sprout. 

You are growing the carrot plant from a carrot top, not the vegetable. Carrots are a taproot and once it is removed from the plant, it can’t regrow, unlike a potato.

¡Cultivemos las zanahorias!

Las cimas de las zanahorias hacen plantas bonitas para una ventana soleada y su follaje en forma de helecho eventualmente florecer

flores blancas con forma de encaje.

Tapas de Zanahoria en Crecimiento

  1. Corta la parte superior de una zanahoria. Necesitarás aproximadamente una pulgada de la parte de la raíz (la parte más ancha de la zanahoria).
  2. Pegue un palillo de dientes en ambos lados del trozo de zanahoria y equilibre sobre un vaso pequeño.
  3. Llena el vaso con agua hasta apenas tocar el borde inferior de la parte superior de la zanahoria. Coloque el vidrio en una ventana ligera pero no soleada.
  4. Agregue agua según sea necesario para mantenerla tocando el borde de su zanahoria y observe cómo brotan las raíces.

Estás cultivando la planta de zanahoria desde la parte superior de una zanahoria, no la verdura. Las zanahorias son una raíz principal y una vez que se retira de la planta, no puede volver a crecer, a diferencia de una papa.
