Recipes & Tips

Basil

Basil, a member of the mint family, is a flavorful, leafy green herb that originated in Asia and Africa. This plant loves hot weather, so it is flourishing in gardens right now! Once picked, basil is at its best if used within two days. Wrap the leaves in a paper towel, place them in a plastic bag, and then pop them in the refrigerator. Or, for longer use, consider drying your basil and enjoy the flavor all year!

Blueberries

Okay, we know that most of you will probably eat your half pint of blueberries by themselves as the perfect summer treat. (We would, too!) But, if you are feeling a bit ambitious, try one of these recipes that uses that exact amount of berries and take your snacking to a whole new level!

Jalapenos

A jalapeno pepper can vary in heat level from between 2,500 and 8,000 Scoville units. Part of the reason jalapenos (and many other peppers) occupy such a wide range of the heat scale is that their hotness depends on when during the growing season they’re harvested (heat and rain also have an effect). But don't be scared of their zip - adding just the right amount to a recipe just ups the flavor without making it too hot. Dairy products or fruit (like in our Jungle Jams) can help to reduce the heat. Want it hotter? Add more jalapenos and don't remove any of the inner bits!

Salad Mix

Our salad mix this week has all sorts of delicious leafy greens. Adding a variety of greens to your salads gives you a wider range of nutrients than just using lettuce as your base. Plus, it adds interest for your eyes and your taste buds! The salad you took home on July 7th included an edible "weed" - purslane - and it is making an appearance today again. Additionally, wood sorrel has joined the salad bowl. This is another edible wild plant that people regard as a weed but it adds a fun new flavor to your greens. There are many benefits in discovering the wild plants that grow in your area and learning how to add them to your diet.
