Stone fruit has an element of nostalgia, bringing to mind memories of sweet, sticky hands on a hot summer day—picking through pint containers of little yellow-orange fruit at the farmers’ market and popping open vats of aromatic preserves put by for colder times. Luckily, we don’t have to wait until peak summer in New England to enjoy organic stone fruit season!

How to Pack a Healthy School Lunch (Your Kids Will Actually Eat)

Posted by Eric Siegel on Aug 24, 2015 8:56:00 AM

Mention school lunches to a parent and you’re guaranteed to get an emotional response. We all remember the barely edible “food” that our own school cafeterias served, and while some schools are doing a better job of providing their students with tasty and nutritious lunch options, packing a lunch is still the best way to make sure our kids stay energized and ready to learn all day long.

But now that kale is everywhere (even McDonald’s is planning to add kale to their menu), there are so many different kinds of kale out there, it’s hard to keep them all straight.

Here’s a quick guide to the most common varieties of kale we carry, so the next time it shows up in your organic grocery delivery you won’t be asking yourself “What the kale is that?!”
