Sweet Corn

Freshness Tips

Sweet Corn is tricky as the sugar in corn can covert to starch within two days, leaving your family thinking, “What’s so great about Sweet Corn?” The best tip we have for freshness, is to ask the vendor selling the corn, “When it was picked?” If it was cut in the cool of the morning (like at Silverbrook) or refrigerated, it may last longer than a couple days.

 

Tomatoes

Freshness Tips

To keep Tomatoes fresh, place the Tomatoes in a paper bag, stem side up. Keep bag out of direct sunlight and do not refrigerate. Tomatoes will keep for up to three days in the paper bag. Now, some folks skip the paper bags entirely and just lay them on the counter out of direct sunlight and they last for a week.

   

Watermelon

Freshness Tips

Do not buy Watermelons kept in coolers at the store. Refrigeration is shown to significantly hasten decomposition. Storing Watermelon at a slightly chilled room temperature (70ish) will actually give you a Watermelon that is good about 14 days from harvest. You can also cut and freeze if need be.

Recipes

What you will need:
- 4 to 5 pounds broccoli,
- Olive Oil
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest and 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted and 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons julienned fresh basil leaves (about 12 leaves)

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cut the broccoli florets from the thick stalks, leaving an inch or two of stalk attached to the florets, discarding the rest of the stalks. Cut the larger pieces through the base of the head with a small knife, pulling the florets apart. You should have about 8 cups of florets. Place the broccoli florets on a sheet pan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Toss the garlic on the broccoli and drizzle with 5 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned.
  3. Remove the broccoli from the oven and immediately toss with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, the lemon zest, lemon juice, pine nuts, Parmesan, and basil. Serve hot.
