Did You Forget to Order? If So, There's Still Time!


Dear Friends,

Did you forget to place an order? Did you lose track of the day, since Monday fell on a holiday? Don’t fret – there is still time to order, but not for long. We will leave the system live until 2 p.m. today. We just don’t want you to miss the opportunity to order all the products you typically purchase. But after 2 p.m., that’s it. You’ll have to wait until the next ordering cycle begins on Saturday evening.

Can you believe that Labor Day weekend is almost here? We’ve been asking ourselves at our house how did summer pass so quickly?! Our tomato patch is still producing, although the vines are beginning to look ragged. This is a sure sign that Fall is coming soon.

If you need inspiration about what to do with the bounties of a late summer garden, take a look at this website: https://www.bonappetit.com/occasion/summer. You will find delectable recipes accompanied by colorful photographs that will make your mouth water and prompt you to get busy in the kitchen. We should savor all the fresh tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, corn, and eggplant while we can!

Thank you for your support of locally grown agriculture. We hope you have an enjoyable Sunday, and we’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

Beverly

At church this morning, my friend gave me a sizeable bag of fresh basil from her garden. I am delighted with the gift! While I tend to like most herbs, I LOVE basil. My favorite summertime dish is caprese salad – sliced fresh mozzarella cheese interspersed with sliced tomatoes garnished with shredded basil drizzled with a good balsamic vinegar. A little bit of coarse salt heightens the flavors of the simple ingredients. Delicious!

What else is there to make with basil? Today, I am inspired to make pesto. Here’s how: put about 2 cups of fresh basil leaves and 1/3 cup of pine nuts (or walnuts, because I never have pine nuts but always have walnuts) into the bowl of a food processor and pulse several times. Add about 1/2 cup of freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese. (Freshly grated matters; don’t use the stuff that comes in a canister. Buy a little shrink wrapped wedge of real cheese and grate it yourself. There is no comparison!) Also add about 3 cloves of minced garlic and pulse the food processor a few more times. Then, with the food processor running, add 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil in a thin, steady stream. The objective of this step is to emulsify all of the ingredients into a smooth consistency. To finish, sprinkle in salt and freshly ground pepper to taste and pulse to mix.

Use pesto as a sauce over pasta, or spread it on toasted bread, or use it as the base sauce on homemade pizza. You can even use it as a mayonnaise substitute on your favorite sandwich. I hope you enjoy making and using pesto.

Thank you for supporting locally grown agriculture. We’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

Beverly
