This week the Blue Skys Farm herbs look amazing. Below are the fresh herbs that we will be bringing to market tomorrow.
Flavor: Faint overtones of camphor and a hint of lemon. A little goes a long way. Often used in sauces and stuffings. Sage butter on pasta or fish are great pairings. Sage tea is recommended as a remedy for a sore throat.
Flavor: Slightly bittersweet with an aroma similar to anise. A little goes a long way. Pairs well with chicken, white fish, egg and cheese recipes.
Flavor: A pine-like scent and flavor. A little goes a long way. Pairs well with meat and fish but my favorite use for Rosemary is with roasted potatoes.
Flavor: Earthy with hints of clove and balsam. Fresh leaves are wonderful in salads, casseroles and poultry recipes. Dried leaves are especially good with tomatoes, beans, eggplant, zucchini.
Flavor: Mild onion and garlic. Use in omelets, add to salads, sprinkle over roasted vegetables prior to serving.
Flavor: Lemon. Use in place of lemon zest in recipes. Muddle in ice water and other beverages.
Flavor: Robust, almost meaty. Good lightly cooked like spinach. Historically, nettle has been used to treat rheumatism, as a diuretic and as a soothing aid to skin problems.

Baby Lacinato Kale
Baby Bright Lights Swiss Chard
Christina’s Custom Salad Mix
