Tips & Recipe Ideas

Black Beauty Tomatoes

"World’s darkest tomato! A dark, meaty, very rich-fleshed tomato. So dark that some tomatoes turn solid blue-black on the skin. Deep red flesh is among the best tasting of all tomatoes. Rich, smooth and savory with earthy tones. Hangs well on the vine and stores very well, and the flavor improves with room-temperature storage." Source: https://www.rareseeds.com/

"It is one of the sweetest, most delicious-tasting tomatoes I have ever had. I usually like to top my tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and basil, but not with this one. It is sweet enough on it’s own, and I don’t want anything masking the delicious flavor. I honestly just snack on these raw."

Grape & Cherry Tomatoes

Spaghetti Squash

Did you know?

"The “spaghetti” name comes from the fact that when it is cooked, the flesh of the vegetable is long and stringy in appearance, like spaghetti. It rose to popularity in the US and Europe during the 1970’s." Read all about it here: https://jovinacooksitalian.com/2013/04/25/spaghetti-squash/


Zucchini Bread Recipe

Just in case you'd like to try recreating our zucchini bread, here is the recipe we use. It is from an old church cookbook, compiled by St. Jacob's United Church of Christ. Some of the best recipes can be found in those church cookbooks! Rachel's mom has a recipe for custard pie in this book that I can't wait to try.
