A note from the farm: The volatile weather we had back in April has killed our first batch of raspberries for the year, so we won’t have raspberries for another few weeks. The good news is that the late strawberry crop continues to produce, so we are enjoying these fruits later into June than we normally do.

Cooking Ideas

Breakfast

  • Barefoot Contessa’s Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp– Yes, it is a dessert, but it is a must-make when you have both of these fruits in the house. And it makes a great breakfast!
  • On the healthier side, wrap your sweet potatoes in foil, pre-bake them and store them in the fridge. A warmed baked sweet potato with butter, fruit, nuts or a fried egg makes an excellent breakfast.
