Lincoln Box contents, 19 November

Ooooh, some goodies this time (I say that every time, don't I?). Swiss chard is the tall leafy green--treat the leaves like spinach, and the white stalks like celery, more or less. The fruits that aren't apples are fuyu persimmons--yes, you can figure out something to do with them. (Keeping it simple, they go great in fruit salad.) Yellow beans, mmm, nice to add a different color to a stirfry, or your favorite casserole. And who can't enjoy some fresh basil?

Here's what it all looked like together on my counter:
What you see: mixed greens, yellow beans, cabbage, broccoli, lettuce, baby carrots, swiss chard, basil, apples, fuyu persimmons.

Fuyu persimmons can be eaten out of the hand, must like you would eat an apple. Yum.

Softer ones can be chopped up and added to yogurt.

I've been eating slices of the ripest one all afternoon....;) Nice, mild flavor, smooth texture, lovely color.
