The Blueberriest Blueberries.

 

Did you know that Washington State is the top producer of blueberries in the United States? And then Georgia, then Michigan? Washington State alone produces over 95 MILLION POUNDS of them a year! That's a lot of berries friends! 

And, in case your fingers are itching to Google the distance between Boston and Washington State, let me save you the time and just tell you its about 3,000 miles (or 423,000,000 Jet Blue Points).  It makes me wonder what a delicate fruit has to be treated with to survive a journey that long. Or if it's organic, how long ago it was picked before it arrives on our plates.

Last week one of our members said that the berries she got in her share were the "the most blueberry tasting blueberry" she had ever had.  It made us smile.

That's what we are always going for at Family Dinner, local produce, from local growers delivered to your door at the peak of freshness. The most Tomatoey Tomatoes. The Blueberriest Blueberries, brought to you with love.

Thanks for the support, and Bon Appetit!

Love,

Erin + Tim

WHAT'S IN THE BAG?

**Red's Best is having an issue with their packing machine. The fish may arrive this week in a different plastic package than usual. However, this is the same quality fish, with the same freshness from the same facility. Just traveling in a different bag.

RECIPES

Beer Braised Pork Butt: This recipe is for a 5 pound butt, and your butt is smaller than that, so adjust the rub and the time accordingly.

Grilled Pizza: ITS SUMMER. The grill is always a primo option, even for pizza.

Stuffed Peppers: Fine. I couldn't find a way to grill these but they are a great choice for lots of your recent share items. Chorizo or Hot Italian Sausage work well, as do any of the veggies you have kicking around. Carrots? Zucchini? Tomatoes? Kale? Sure thing. Bring it on.
