For the third week of our four week exploration of healthy produce that we grow in our gardens, this week we'll be focusing on the Berenjena!

Berenjena or eggplant is used in a wide variety of Puerto Rican and Latino cuisine including berenjenas guisadas, berenja con bacalao and carne de cerdo guisado con berenjena. It is low in fat, protein, and carbohydrates and provides 11% of the recommended daily value of Manganese.

We grow many berenjenas in our gardens each summer and hope you'll stop by and visit our stand this summer.

For our second week of National Nutrition Month, we’ll be taking a look at the delicious Batata.

Batatas (from the original Taíno batata) or sweet potatoes are used in a wide variety of Puerto Rican and Caribbean cuisine including in sancocho, pasteles, and batatas al almibar boricua among many others. 1 cup of batatas is 114 calories and provides 12% of the daily recommended potassium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Vitamin B-6 and Magnesium. 

We’ll have batatas at our farmstand this Fall so feel free to stop by and enjoy some for $1.
