How to Prepare, Cook and Get the Most from Your Summer Produce!

I am very excited to announce a Summer series I’ll be teaching!  Summer means sun, fun, and great, fresh food!  Every year I look forward to all the beautiful local produce from our local farmers.  I’m a huge fan of the farmer’s markets around here, but I also love to be a part of a CSA.  What’s a CSA?  It stands for Community Supported Agriculture.

You buy in to a share of produce from a local farm.  Your payment guarantees you a box delivered every week full of fresh goodies from the farm.  You can choose between a full or half share, and some farms have additional options such as fresh milk or eggs.  It’s a great deal for you because you are guaranteed wonderful fresh, locally grown produce every week, but it’s great for our farmers because we are supporting them in their endeavors!  Win-win!

Why buy local?  It’s better for you.  The food has higher nutrition content because it travels less, is picked at ripeness, and delivered to your drop spot.  It’s better for the community because we are supporting local businesses.  It’s better for the environment because there’s no long distance travel involved!

CSA’s are a wonderful way to do good for yourself and your community, so what are you waiting for?  And once you’ve signed up, join me this summer and I will teach you how to get the most from your fruits and vegetables!
