🍠Produce Fact🍠JAPANESE SWEET POTATOES are a rich, dense, and nutritious sweet potato that can be used to make noodles, sweets, confectionaries, and soups! They have a nutty, slightly floral flavor and are sweeter and more firm compared to American sweet potatoes. 🍠They often evoke nostalgia in Japanese culture, for they were commonly sold in the form of stone-roasted sweet potatoes (“ishi yaki-imo”) by street vendors post WWII. 🍠They can be roasted, baked, boiled, stir-fried, and steamed! Sweet potato starch also contains more amylose than amylopectin, which raises blood sugar slower, making them a healthy food choice for diabetics. 🍠Enjoy these sweet potatoes in the winter and let them warm you up. •

🧨Happy Lunar New Year🧨
In Chinese culture, foods can symbolize many things and when eaten during big holidays, like Lunar New Year, they can represent what the year will hold. Bok Choy, bearing resemblance to the sycee, symbolizes rising fortune! 🏮
Today, we are highlighting a recipe from Woks of Life featuring Bok Choy & Nian Gao (glutinous rice cake) that you can make to celebrate Lunar New Year. In Chinese, Nian Gao sounds like the phrase “getting higher year by year” (“年年高”), which is taken to mean prosperity! (Find the recipe on their website!)🎇
May this year bring prosperity to you in the areas where you need it most (like eating healthy and deliciously sourced produce!!!) 🐷🧧🐷🧧

🍊Fruit Fact🍊FUYU PERSIMMONS are the most widely cultivated persimmon in the world. They are meant to be eaten while still firm, but they can also be eaten out of hand at various times during maturation. They do not oxidize like many fruits do which makes them great choices for lunch boxes and picnics. They grow within the fall and winter months, go find them at your local markets!

Heart is full from yesterday’s gathering @forwardapi and Pilipino Workers Center! I am beyond inspired by APIFM’s work bridging health, EJ, food, farmers & cultural relevancy across LA communities. They are the real deal - read up on them and go to their Farm to Chopsticks meal next week (link below). Their HANDA program grew an intergenerational Filipino health and food justice space and it was a gift to guest share with them. I can’t thank the crew enough for a warm welcome, from an airport welcome, to lunch together at LASA, to coordinating harvest of malunggay and kabocha from their partner farmers Dream Farm, to PWC holding the space, & all the folks who came through last night bringing their knowledge & memories. Maraming Salamat Po! 💪💕 👉🏾👉🏾👉🏾http://www.apifm.org/ftc/ . .

#TBT Food Roots staff Kyle and Charles recently traveled up to Fresno, CA to host the second workshop in our 2 part series for Hmong and other southeast Asian farmers to help farmers learn more about local labor resources in the community. These resources include farmers associations and the benefits they offer to their members as well as local labor contractors and the basics about what to look for, how to work with them, and the options that are available. There is a critical nation wide farm labor shortage that is having an amplified impact on small farmers of color. Conversations were also started about trying to bring more southeast Asian farmers together so they can leverage their labor needs to get more reliable laborers and better rates from local labor contractors. Special thanks to Kay & Kee Lee of Valley Ag & Specialties, Gil Molina from the California Association of Agricultural Labor, and Mike Alamari from California Pacific Supply! •

We always offer organic produce that’s from small family farmers that spend the time and energy growing what they’re truly passionate about. It all falls in line with our own passion for Family Farmed Food. Here’s a behind the scenes shot of Farmer Ken Lee of Ken’s Top Notch Produce showing us a small emerald plum bud that will eventually blossom into a full grown fruit! Stay tuned... these Roots are taking shape.

Yesterday, after coordinating a workshop for Hmong farmers in Fresno, APIFM staffer Kyle visited a nearby farm. Kao (the farmer) gave him these huge turnips, radishes, and a beet to take home. We hope to partner with his farm one day and bring delicious veggies like this your table! #localfood #foodrootsla #foodjustice #farmtochopsticks #farmtotable #fresno
Chinese eggplant is a more slender, sweeter relative of the common round Italian eggplant. Its white flesh is tender and nearly seedless and cooks up very quickly. When picking out chinese eggplant in the grocery store, look for ones that have smooth, flawless skin and are heavy. •

Baby bok choy is the tender, young counterpart to the mature, larger Bok Choy. Baby bok choy is packed full of nutrients and is incredibly versatile. It can be steamed, fried, boiled, or even eaten raw. Not only is it cute and delicious but it’s mild flavor means it goes well with tons of different flavors. •

Daikon is an extremely versatile vegetable. Not only can you use the white root to make pickles or to add in stews, you can also cook up the mild flavored green tops for a tasty meal.

What’s the best daikon dish you’ve ever had?

Daikon is an extremely versatile vegetable. Not only can you use the white root to make pickles or to add in stews, you can also cook up the mild flavored green tops for a tasty meal.

Yu choy is a delicious, healthy leafy green. You may have seen it on the table at dim sum, blanched and served with oyster sauce. It has a sweeter taste than the more well known Chinese broccoli, gai lan.
Not only is it tasty, it’s also packed with vitamins A and C. What’s your favorite Yu choy recipe?
