Orange Honeydew Melon
Oval-to-round and a delicious cross between a cantaloupe and a honeydew, the very fleshy juicy orangish-yellow pulp of the orange honeydew melon is encased in a hard very yellow matching rind.
Spring onions are most often utilized raw. The whole onion can be flash blanched and grilled, which brings out more the robust and sweet elements of the onions, and makes them a bolder pair for fish and meats

Inventory, ea : 0
Check for availability. Shiitake logs provide year round mushrooms and may be grown either indoors or outdoors in a shady area.
Eye-catching and rather unusual, all-natural hardwood logs grow the very best shiitake mushrooms. Prized for superior texture and flavor, log-grown mushrooms provide a long shelf life, plus excellent nutritional and medicinal benefits.
Shiitakes that are log-grown contain about 18 percent protein mass and are high in iron, calcium, phosphorus, niacin, vitamin B1 and vitamin B2.
Averaging about four inches in diameter, shiitake logs are soaked in cold water to begin the growing process. In six to eight days, fresh shiitake mushrooms will appear. Use in soups, stews, sauces, and stir-fries or simply sautéed in seasonings and fresh herbs. To store fresh mushrooms, place between damp paper towels or in a paper bag; refrigerate. Do not store in plastic, as mushrooms need to "breathe" to maintain their flavor and texture. To clean, brush with a paper towel or a mushroom brush. Do not soak mushrooms in water as they will absorb the water and flavor will be lost.
Although enjoyed for many years, mushrooms have taken off especially in the past decade in cuisines all over the world. Grown for more than a thousand years in Japan, it is common for households to grow their own supply. Domestic shittakes are the same as those grown in China and Japan.
Cultivated in Asia for many years, shiitake means "mushroom of the shii or oak tree" and are especially revered in the Orient for their excellent flavor, succulent texture and beneficial medicinal properties. From the patio or backyard, shiitake logs produce great-tasting mushrooms continually up to five years.
