Produce in a Basket

We are trying something new this week. Rachel has found that we have enough cardboard produce baskets to pack one for each CSA share. We ask that you bring your basket back the next time you come in so that we can refill it! This is an experiment, so we will see if it works out or not.

Thyme

When you think of herbs like thyme, do you normally picture a beautifully roasted chicken or a tender piece of beef? How about baked apples?!?! Give this unexpected use for fresh thyme a try and let us know if you like it! Want a more traditional thyme recipe? Can't go wrong with cheddar-thyme biscuits!



Tips For Cooking With Thyme

Thyme can be used in its whole form, or by picking individual leaves from the stem at the base of each leaf cluster. Thyme leaves can be added, whole or chopped, to a dish at any stage of cooking. The longer they cook, however, the more flavor they’ll provide. Thyme stems are fibrous and won’t break down during cooking, so if using whole thyme stems, pick them out and discard before serving. If baking with thyme, remove the small individual leaves from the stem beforehand. (Source: https://www.thespruceeats.com/all-about-thyme-996135)



What About Thyme Flowers?

You can use flowers as a garnish, on the stem or break up the tiny blooms and sprinkle flower pieces on dishes. Thyme flowers add a lemony flavor to foods and can be used in making flavored butter. (Source: https://homeguides.sfgate.com/thyme-blossoms-edible-80361.html)

Corn

Sticking with the idea of unexpected recipes, how about a fun, new way to prepare fresh corn on the cob? You've boiled it, you've grilled it, but have you made ice cream? Check out this very cool idea below!

Tips to Cut Your Corn Off the Cob

Onion

Onions are not the first thing that come to mind when the word "breakfast" is mentioned...but maybe they should be! Check out this recipe that incorporates onions into your breakfast eggs!
