Recipe Ideas - Summer Share 2015 (Week 4)

Welcome to Week 4 of the Summer Season!

Week 4 celebrates delicious green things like broccoli, zucchini (and other summer squashes) and garlic scapes! Savory dishes are the theme for this week's at home "Chopped" episode. What do you have planned for those gorgeous heads of broccoli and zesty garlic scapes?

Raspberries and other berries are incredibly delicious, but also extremely fragile and perishable items. All fresh picked berries are susceptible to spoilage with increased humidity, heat, or moisture (it rained on Lagoner Farms last night). You may find that 1 or 2 raspberries or cherries are past ripeness at the bottom of your quarts. Have no fear, this is fairly typical when add moisture or heat is involved. Simply separate those 1 or 2 overly ripe berries from the rest of the gang for composting.

Keep in mind that these berries are not "designed" to have a long shelf life. They are harvested at peak ripeness, when bursting with flavor, and are meant to be enjoyed as soon as possible! If you can't eat them within 1-2 days, freeze for later enjoyment!
