High Cotton

What more can we say than we are in high cotton these days when it comes to the best of summer. Anytime we can fill a CSA basket with fresh corn, Chilton County peaches, okra, AND tomatoes, is a darned fine week.

And that’s right where we are.

We’re grateful to farmer Lance Boyd of Cullman who grows a non-GMO variety of corn for us; we know this type of farming is as important to you as it is to us. We value supporting these types of agricultural efforts.

From our own farm, we have those still-warm-from-the-sun tomatoes plus fresh cheese, okra and peppers. Hmmm, sounds like a side dish right there.

Belle Meadow Farm brings us more of those charming fairytale eggplants. Didn’t you love them last week? We sliced ours on half lengthwise, lightly salted them and let them rest to draw out a little moisture while we prepared the grill. Once the meat came off the grill, the eggplant went on, lightly oiled with some freshly ground pepper. The meat rested while the eggplant grilled just slightly, bringing out their mellow, happy flavor. Heaven. How did you prepare yours? We’d love to hear. Tag us on your social media posts so we can connect! @StoneHollowFarmstead @FarmstandbyStoneHollow

Rounding out the basket today is some gorgeous rosemary olive oil bread that Corey Hinkel has produced. The aroma alone is almost enough to satisfy but we’ll slice ours, dredge in fresh eggs and whole milk and make a savory French Toast for dinner. What to put on top? How about sautéing some of those oyster mushrooms from Southern Organics with thinly-sliced shallots and fresh thyme? Sounds like a delicious spin on breakfast-for-dinner and a mid-week winner for sure.
