Farm updates…

If, for some reason, you miss the pick up, we will pack a box for you and put it in the back of the truck. You will be able to pick up your box from the farm that evening or the next morning. Also, you are welcome to come to the farm and pick your own cherry tomatoes. They are lovely. Charles, Stephanie and Scott are around Monday through Friday. Charles is sometimes there on Saturdays.

What to do with your produce this week….

The corn is spectacular. It is so fresh and sweet, you don’t even have to cook it. Here is a really simple recipe from Joshua McFadden’s cookbook, Six Seasons: A New Way With Vegetables.

Raw Corn with Walnuts, Mint and Chiles

Ingredients

  • 2 ears sweet corn, husked and kernels sliced off into a bowl
  • 1/2 cup of roughly chopped, lightly toasted walnuts
  • 1 or 2 jalapeƱo, seeded, deribbed, and minced
  • 4 scallions, sliced on a sharp angle
  • Small handful of mint (you can substitute basil)
  • 1/2 lime
  • Salt and pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup shredded Pecorino Romano cheese

Directions

Put corn, walnuts, chiles, scallions, mint (basil) in a bowl. Toss to mix. Squeeze lime over the mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add 1/4 cup of olive oil and toss. Serve and top with shredded Pecorino. Note: you can add a few cherry tomatoes. Or you can grill eggplant and serve it on top of that.
