Friends of the Farm-
A fun addition to this week's produce box- fresh Chamomile! We love the smell & look of this crop fresh, dried, in tea, herbal medicine, and more. Give the salad dressing recipe a try for a new appreciation for the capabilities for these multi-faceted flowers. Hoping too the sheer smell of these fresh flowers bring you joy and a versatile ingredient perhaps you have never worked with in your home kitchens.
A produce note about this week's cucumbers- this variety is developed by Chef Dan Barber's team at Row 7 Seeds. If you haven't tried grilling or pickling these cucumbers we highly suggest! Otherwise, they are always a reliable snack on their own or any easy addition to a summer salad.
We welcome you to enjoy this edition of our weekly curated music playlist:
This week has an extra dose of the Fleetwood Mac catalog. Eyes of the World from the album Mirage (1982), and the jammer- All the Things You Do from Kiln House (1970). A touch of solo Stevie Nicks as the cherry on top with Rock a Little (which is exactly what we encourage you to do with your produce box & playlist each week). Not to worry we also bring the sounds of the world by way of Mexico, Spain, Angola, Brazil, France, Portugal, and the UK to this week's mix. Summer travel or home cooking, take it wherever you find yourself this weekend. Enjoy!
All our best from the farm,
Tom & William and Live Oak Farm team
