Crop of the Week: Squash Blossoms

Squash blossoms are the flowers produced by any number of vines. Some common examples are zucchini, pumpkin, and other various types of squash.

Vendor Julie Leidel shares her favorite way to preserve fresh produce when it’s at its peak.
It’s Citrus Season!  Preserved Lemons – super easy to make, and gives a big flavor punch.  You can get beautiful lemons from any number of our produce vendors.  Pop on over to Salt Of The Earth for some sea salt and you’re good to go.  I typically put preserved lemons on fish and chicken.  They’re also great chopped up (rind and all) and added to rice or other grains.  If you’re feeling generous, they make a great gift for your friends who love to cook.
