supplement with produce from other local farms. Some weeks will include value added

items, such as Jungle Jam, Zucchini Bread, or Fresh Basil Pesto.


Important Question: How have you used your Jungle Jam? We would love to know!!

Tips & Recipe Ideas

Mint

A perfect herb in both sweet and savory dishes, check out these delicious summer mint recipes. There's even one that's sure to be a hit with young and old alike, great for the hottest day when no ice cream man is in sight!

Peas

Garden fresh peas are one of the highlights of summer. We found this recipe that uses two of this week's ingredients...peas and mint.

Kale

We had some great kale uses a couple weeks ago, but just found a new one! Check out "The BEST Kale Salad" and let us know if it lives up to its name!

Lemon Balm

"Fresh Lemon Balm imparts a subtle lemon flavor and fresh lemon fragrance, making it especially nice for fruit dishes, custards, and tea. Lemon Balm can be used both in hot and iced teas and in combination with other herbs such as spearmint. The plant is also often used as a flavoring in ice cream and its also suitable for spicing up chicken and fish dishes. Early fresh leaves can be chopped and added to salads. As cooking destroys the fragrance, Lemon Balm should be added to already cooked recipes." Source: clickandgrow.com
