Berries, Broth and a Bike Ride.

Berries, Broth and a Bike Ride.

 

Broth: 

This week we have Vegetable Ginger Broth from John at Five Way Foods for the whole and double shares. John had a dream of starting a company to topple the broth business by making real-deal, from scratch broth. (Most of the stuff you see on the shelves is full of preservatives and other malarkey.) Its a real love - the simmering takes forever! We wanted to share this with you for your sautéing your summer veggies or for the perfect chilled soup or smoothie addition. We also love to keep you guessing in the shares!

From John:

"Five Way Foods takes proud in producing healthy and fresh broths.  Our Veggie Broth is slow-simmered using locally sourced vegetables (leeks, carrots, parsnips, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, celery, and more) along with herbs and spices (sea salt, peppercorn, rosemary, thyme) and a good size portion of ginger.   It’s a flavorful broth that is low in salt with no gluten, dairy, soy or preservatives and 100% Vegan."

Berries:

We have berries from Kimball Fruit Farm in Pepperell, MA. This is an IPM Farm, which is not certified organic but used environmentally conscious pest management. We have been searching for organic berries but have learned its incredibly difficult to do in New England at scale.

The farm and the fields are gorgeous, if you are ever out that way, stop by the store! You can find their goodies in some of the best restaurants in Boston. If you visit them at the Union Square market early enough you might see Chef Tony Maws picking out produce for Craigie on Main. ( Good Lord, that BURGER.)

Bike Ride:

One of our Family Dinner Members, Corrine, is doing the Pan Mass Challenge this year. This is 192 mile bike route across Massachusetts to support the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Corrine's youngest son Joey was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 and had to undergo many harrowing treatments. From the wonderful community of excellence at Dana-Farber, he is now cancer free and a total rock star. 

Family Dinner has donated a dollar from each share sold this week to Corrine's ride. They are just shy of their $10,000 goal if you want to learn more!

We love to support the local community, if you have any ideas for us, please let us know!

RECIPES

Pasta with Greens - Can be eaten cold, as a salad. Add your chorizo for a heartier, non- veggie friendly version

Sesame Mustard Greens- These guys from Clark Farm are a staple in Asian cuisine. They are bright and peppery. As with many greens, you can't go wrong with garlic and olive oil but the splash of sesame oil at the end really makes it. This is a great thing to have on hand in your pantry, BTW.

Smooth Zucchini Soup: YUM. 

One Pan Salmon and Swiss Chard: Easy, breezy.

Kohlrabi 101: How to approach this funky, cabbage like veggie.
