Farm up-date…

Tomatoes are starting to dwindle and it appears that the weather is beginning to cool. You will begin to see more fall vegetables in the coming weeks.

What to do with your produce this week…

Time for gazpacho soup to celebrate the last of the summer tomatoes. Here is an easy recipe from Delish.com.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 cucumbers, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp. red wine or sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water (you could substitute our Oxford Local Marinara here to enhance the tomato flavor)
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp. basil for garnish

Directions

Combine tomatoes, cucumbers, pepper, garlic, vinegar and water in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth, then add olive oil and blend to combine. If you like a coarse gazpacho, chop your vegetables by hand and mix. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Once chilled, serve with a sprinkle of fresh basil on top.
