This week’s recipes! You can find more on our website!
Celery: Stoneledge Farm Celery! Not your average store celery. This is a beautiful dark green and extremely flavorful celery. Easy to freeze for winter soups and stews or enjoy raw with not butter or in a summer salad.
Eggplant: It’s that time of year! How many ways can you make Eggplant? Our favorite is the Italian way! Yum!
Lacinato Kale: A long dark green leaf variety of kale. A staple in Italian cuisine. You can sauté, steam and it makes great Kale chips!
Tomatoes: So many varieties! Share your favorite tomato recipe! We love tomato, mozzarella, basil and balsamic!
Hot Peppers: Can be strung up, and hung to dry and use at a later time. Once they are dry you can crush them and use them as needed when cooking.
