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
McMaster Farms Sweet Corn
Corn & Zucchini Combos
Oregano is an aromatic perennial herb in the mint family. When in bloom, it has beautiful purple or pink flowers that are also edible. A sprinkle of this herb will give any recipe a burst of flavor.
There are so many great ways to use this lovely scented herb!
Lemon Balm Water:
Fill a jar with fresh lemon balm leaves and a thinly sliced lemon. Pour in cold water until it reaches the top. Refrigerate for several hours.
Lemon Balm & Honey Butter:
Mix half a stick (4 tablespoons) of softened butter with a pinch of finely chopped lemon balm. Add a drizzle of honey to taste. Perfect on hot fresh bread or biscuits!
Candied Lemon Balm Leaves:
Beat an egg white with a tiny bit of water. Dip lemon balm leaves in the mixture, then dip in sugar. Lay the coated leaves on a parchment lined baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in a 200 degree F oven until the leaves look dry, but not browned. Check after 20 minutes and every 5 to 10 after that.
Lemon Balm Vinegar:
Great in salad dressings! Fill a jar about 3/4 full with fresh leaves. Cover with apple cider vinegar. Cap with a non-metallic lid and let steep in a cool dark place for a few weeks. Strain and use.
All the above lemon balm ideas come from The Nerdy Farm Wife.
