What beautiful weather we're experiencing this early July. We're finally getting the summer heat we need for crops to grow! This week's farm share may include shell peas, garlic scapes, greens, summer squash, radicchio, and carrots.
We highly recommend soaking the radicchio in cold water and some salt for a half hour before eating. It takes some of the bitterness away. We did that recently and then made a slaw. It was delicious!
Garlic scapes can be used in stir-frys, grilled, used in pesto, pickled like dilly beans, etc. Basically they can be used just as you would use a green onion. If anyone is interested in making pesto or pickled scapes, please contact us as we may have extra available for purchase.
