Why do Melons get married?

 

... Because they Cantaloupe!

This week we have Melons from Brookford Farm in Canterbury, NH. We love supporting Luke and Catarina and their incredible work at this 613 acre farm.  This beautiful land used to be a sod farm and for years and years was depleting the soil, robbing of its nutrients; making it weaker from year to year. 

Luke, Catarina and their team (including their 4 boys) have been tending to this land and nursing it back to health since 2012. They have 35 acres of organic produce and beautiful herds of cattle (hello Maple Greek Yogurt!), pigs and chickens.  The land is happy to have the love and gave them a bumper crop of melons this week. We are passing all that love on to you.

Enjoy!

Love,

Erin + Tim

RECIPES

Flounder with Soy Sauce: It seems that everyone and their mother wants you to make flounder with bread crumbs and parmesan. Sounds perfectly lovely but I like this approach with a touch of soy sauce and citrus better.

Grilled Eggplant: Keep it simple and leave it here; or top with chopped tomatoes, basil and cheese (Feta? Mozz? Haloumi?) and a nice dousing of lemon, basil and Maldon Salt.

Simple Parm: I made two trays of this last week and devoured them almost single handedly. I don't follow a recipe, but I do cheat with jarred sauce. Cut eggplants thinly, dip in a beaten egg and coat with flour. Fry until golden brown, lay on paper towels. Layer a pan with Rao's Marinara (SO SO GOOD), the eggplant and plenty of shredded mozz. Repeat until the pan is full, add one last coating of cheese and bake for 45-50 minutes. 

Celery Soup: Soup seems like a weird thing for summer but those office cubes are cold, man!
