Farm Share Week 6: July 8-10, 2015

It’s already week 6 for our farm share boxes and July is cruising by just as quickly for me as the rest of the year has.  This week I am attempting to make kale chips for the first time-we have a potato chip addiction in our house and it would be lovely to find a healthy alternative that my almost 3 year old son will eat.  After doing some research I found a nice blog with a great recipe with lots of tips and tricks.  Here is the link to the Flawless baked kale chip recipe.

Everyone can look forward to these lovely items in your boxes this week:

Last year I froze/saved all of my currents and made a black current/red current jam that my family really enjoyed and I plan on doing the same this year.  If your unsure of what to use your red or black currents for here are a few recipe ideas that you can try them out on 🙂

A couple of breakfast options-Black currant smoothie and other jucied recipes and a lovely muffin recipe.
For all the dessert lovers a black currant and white chocolate creme brulee.
Last but not least a black currant sauce for red meat.

Remember if you have any questions about your boxes contents-or recipe ideas don’t hesitate to ask, Jennifer or myself will happily help in any way we can.  Enjoy your boxes this week and have a great rest of the week/weekend!
