Tips & Recipe Ideas

Special Tomatoes

This week provides a bounty of yummy, farm-fresh tomatoes...one of the best parts of summer! Our purple-y green tomatoes might be ones you've never seen before.


Atomic Grape: Incredible-looking when simply halved and tossed with salt, pepper and good olive oil. Source: https://www.starkbros.com


Rebel Starfighter Prime: Flavor should be deep and rich with long lasting “umami.” Good tomato for slicing. Source: https://www.worldtomatosociety.com/



These tomatoes make a great snack, or sandwich, or burger topping. They would also work well in a tomato salad, like the recipe below.

Corn

Straight from one of our favorite local farms, you are getting a half dozen ears of amazing sweet corn! Check out McMaster Farms on Facebook and on their website:

Beets

Did you know that "beets and their greens are an excellent source of folate, vitamins A and K, and a very good source of manganese, copper, and potassium....And they're so versatile, you can steam, fry, pickle, juice, boil, slow cook, pressure cook, or eat them in a salad."

This year, we've grown white, golden, and red beets, so you'll find an assortment in your share today.

Beet Greens

Don't throw those beet tops away! They are good for all sorts of things, like Sauteed Beet Greens. Hit the button below for that recipe. (Oddly, I couldn't link to this recipe like I normally do, had to use a button. Technology!)

Sage

This herb makes me think of my mom's Thanksgiving stuffing. Yum! But there are so many other recipes that can be improved by the addition of some lovely, fresh sage. Check out the article below for some great ideas on how to use it, as well as a delicious sounding recipe for "Fried Sage and Parmesan Penne."
