We’ve officially reached summer come tomorrow, the longest day of the year. Ironically, we start winding down the hours of light, just as it feels like food is really kicking off.
Hopefully you all can celebrate with some dear ones and some of the food harvested for you!
This week’s big introduction is: garlic scapes!!
These odd-looking beauties are a once-a-year treat and have been a long time coming!
Here’s a recipe for scape pesto:
You can substitute any nut you prefer, or sunflower seeds for a nut-free dish.
Try adding some of your kale to the mix, too!
Eat up what you can and freeze the rest for a quick meal addition.
This share will also include:
Head Lettuce (enjoy now, as we’re about to have a break for a few weeks)
Lettuce Mix or Braising Mix
Bok Choy or Yukina
Kale or Collard Greens
Depending on availability:
Sugar Snap Peas!
Here’s a recipe with some directions of going slooooowly in cooking your choy so as to keep the delicate flavor: http://steamykitchen.com/2112-bok-choy-stir-fry-recipe.html
Apologies for a lack of photos this week–technical difficulties prevailed.
More next week!
