- Basil: We’re going big on basil this week! Try making a batch of pesto and filling up an ice cube tray with the pesto. Place the ice cube tray in the freezer, and once pesto cubes have frozen completely dump them out of the tray into a freezer storage container/bag. Take out basil cubes out to thaw as you need them. One cube is enough for one to two servings. Pesto can be frozen for up to 6 months with cheese added, or up to year with no cheese added.
- Corn, Sugarbuns: Enjoy your first taste of summer sweet corn with the Sugarbuns variety in your share this week. Sugarbuns is the smallest eared of the five varieties we are growing this season, so it only gets bigger and better from here.
- Eggplant: This week we will begin distributing Nadia (Italian Bell variety) and Listada (Italian Heirloom variety) eggplant in rotation with the Orient Express (Japanese) variety you have been seeing for the last few weeks. We will continue with this rotation of these eggplant types for several more weeks until they are finished for the season.
