Quick Tips – Summer crops are in full swing. You have fixins for a fresh salsa. We love our corn on the grill – right in the husk. The corn is picked on harvest day so it is moist and steams itself and the silks slip right off. Parsley can be chopped and frozen in ice cube trays with a bit of water and thawed when needed. Jalapeno peppers are a hot pepper use gloves when cutting and don’t touch your eyes. Removing seeds and white inside can reduce heat. These can also be chopped and frozen to use little bits as you need them. Tomatoes should be left on your counter and not refrigerated. We try to send them home to you when ripe; however, some may need to ripen further. We also try to pack as carefully as possible not to damage them on their travels. Heirloom and vine ripened tomatoes are much more delicate than general store tomatoes. If you have a super ripe one – this is what we do – dice it up, throw it in your saute pan and use it as a bit of cooking sauce for summer squash, beans, pepper – whatever you have on hand. It adds a bit of color and extra flavor.
