Corn Salsa

This week we were thinking about which recipe we should prepare for the blog. We were overwhelmed with choice. So we decided to take a look at our recipe reservoir for some delightful suggestions for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday. Kicking off our list is corn salsa. If you're putting brats on the grill we've got your sauerkraut needs covered. Check out our full recipe options on our blog, and happy cooking!

Coming Attractions!

There are 9 days left until Forty Acres Fresh Market's Grown Good Box goes on sale for the 2024 Midwest growing season. You have already gotten a taste of some of the season's bounty with ramps, asparagus, and rhubarb. There is so much more to come. Our favorite local growers gave us a sneak peak at what they have in the ground right now. Urban Growers Collective is growing great greens. Urban Canopy recently pulled their radishes and they are looking ravishing. B. Lavender Farms is going to have blueberries, garlic, ginger, and turmeric this summer. And Mick Klug Farm just released the season's first strawberries! This year's Grown Good Box variety is shaping up to be epic. Get ready to go local!
