Rain, glorious rain!

Hinkel’s Pizza dough, heirloom tomatoes and basil- perfect start to a pizza!

Hinkel’s Pizza dough, heirloom tomatoes and basil- perfect start to a pizza!

We are over-the-moon excited about the variety in this week’s basket and all of the inspiration that comes with some new ingredients to cook with. From Belle Meadow we have pink radishes and basil bundles. We also are pleased to include their Covington sweet potatoes which are a variety that is not only naturally very sweet but they are more uniform in size and can be stored for much longer than traditional sweet potato varieties. So, if you fail to make something this week with them, just store them in a cool, dry spot (the like a basket with air that can circulate) such a kitchen cabinet. The uniform size makes them the ideal potato for this recipe which is pretty and never fails to impress.

THOSE HEIRLOOM TOMATOES FROM FARMER HAB IN MENTONE!
Can you believe we are lucky enough to get more of these this week? They are stunning and honestly, the epitome of summer, any way you choose to serve them. We’re partial to slices on a plate with a light sprinkle of kosher salt and not much more. Of course, we’ll never turn down a great BLT either and these are just the tomatoes for that sandwich.

Shiitake mushrooms from Grandview make a command performance this week and we’re already dreaming of sautéing them with some shallots and fresh thyme leaves and tossing with al dente pasta and a healthy knob of our goat cheese. Or maybe you take that same mushroom mixture and add in some cooked fresh Italian sausage and fold it up in the middle of Corey Hinkel’s fabulous pizza dough for a weeknight calzone. *stomach is officially growling now*

Chilton county continues to shine with their cucumbers and purple hull peas. The peas freeze well so if you aren’t cooking them this week, just toss the bag in the freezer (make sure it is knotted tight!) and save them for a meal this fall when you need to remember the warm days of early September. We’ve gone to South Carolina for peaches this week – let us know what you think of these juicy jewels and how they compare to our own Alabama peaches.

Finally, from our own farm, in addition to the goat cheese we LOVE to share with y’all, we have more okra (who likes theirs grilled? We do! Threaded on a metal skewer and drizzled with olive oil and maybe some za’atar seasoning? They are the ideal addition to anything you throw on the grill.) We also have some duck eggs in this basket! They are so big and pretty! You can enjoy these any way you’d enjoy a chicken eggs; there is just more of it. Bakers love the larger size for the extra protein they impart. We can see adding these to a big cast iron skillet of shakshuka, like this one from Phyllis Grant (who has a cookbook coming out this fall!)
Nothing better.

Seize this day friends. It is the only one of its kind and deserves to be savored.
