In This Week's Share
Blueberries (From Dillon Fruit Farm)
Number of crops ready and amount of harvest of a given crop will vary throughout the season. We will provide at least six items each week. If we have any crop issues, we will supplement with produce from other local farms. Some weeks will include value added items, such as Jungle Jam, Zucchini Bread, Fresh Basil Pesto, or even fruit we pick at "You-Pick" locations.
Tips & Recipes
Chamomile comes from the same family of plants that includes sunflowers, Echinacea, and marigold and is thought of as a relaxing herb. The leaves and flowers are both edible but they differ in taste, with the flowers having a subtle apple taste. Both can be tossed into a salad or a mug to make a fresh herbal tea. If you choose to dry the flowers, store them in a sealed glass jar for up to 6 months. After 6 months, the flavor is less intense but it is still useable.
Important: Use chamomile with care if allergic to ragweed, as it may trigger allergic reactions.
Starting off with a blueberry riddle: What looks like half a blueberry? (Answer after the blueberry recipes.) There are so many incredible recipes for this versatile little fruit that it was hard to pick just a few! Of course we couldn't pass up the Overnight Oats, since they use both lavender and blueberries. Our GG crew took a field trip to Lisbon to pick these farm fresh blueberries for you and for jam making.
Blueberry riddle answer: The other half!
Gotta love fruit humor!
