Here is what you can expect this week:
Butter Lettuce Sometimes called Boston or Bibb lettuce, has loose round-shaped heads of tender, sweet leaves and a mild flavour. To store, wash and dry the loose leaves and wrap them in paper towels then seal in a plastic bag and refrigerate. Because of their delicate taste, they pair well with strong spicy foods. Use them as wraps such as Korean Grilled Beef Lettuce wraps or Mexican Chipotle Shrimp Lettuce Wraps.
Mulberries Can be eaten fresh, used for sauces, jams, desserts or dried. They are foraged wild berries and very sweet. Considered a “super food” that provides protein and antioxidants. Its the inspiration for the famous mulberry pie.
Kale Tender young leafy greens that we can never get enough of with so many ways to enjoy. Try in salads, soups, roast it or turn into kale chips the kids will love as a healthy snack.
Zucchini Summers most popular squash with so many ways to prepare. It’s mild taste and creamy texture make it incredibly versatile. Last night we cut them lengthwise, brushed with olive oil and grilled them on the BBQ. Served with grated parmesan cheese and squirt of fresh lemon juice….so easy and delicious!! One green and one yellow.
Radish Some of you have given us great feedback on roasting your radishes. For those that have not yet tried it, here is your chance. Cut and cover with olive oil then use your BBQ or even toaster oven if you don’t want to heat up the house during this heat wave.
Green Beans Not only a good source of vitamins and minerals, they are a tasty go-to vegetable. They can be roasted, grilled. boiled or sautéed. Try a great side dish recipe that is perfect for a summer meal. Blanch in boiling salt water for 3-4 minutes and with a slotted spoon transfer to ice bath which stops the cooking process. Cool and pat dry. Heat oil in skillet and cook beans for 3-5 minutes until tender but crisp. Add minced garlic (from last weeks basket) and summer savory (1 tablespoon with stems removed) salt and pepper. Serve.
Summer Savory Has a thyme-like taste with a robust, peppery finish. Savory is also known as the “herb of love”, ancient Romans believed this aromatic herb was a natural aphrodisiac and used it to make love potions. So powerful was its reputation that European monasteries forbid the growth of savory for fear that the monks would fall under its spell.
