Recipes and Cooking Tips

  • Eat this first: Arugula, Bok Choy, and Mushrooms
     
  • Butternut Squash is a sweet tasting squash. Try using a vegetable peeler to remove the outer skin, then dice the squash to your preference. Remove the seeds from the base of the squash.
     
  • Bok Choy has a mild sweet flavor that is best sautéed. Simple heat a skillet with olive oil and garlic. Chop the very ends off, and add the leafy greens to the skillet. Toss and stir the bok choy until it softens. OR simply soak the bok choy in hot water for 15 minutes.
     
  • Shiitake mushrooms are great sautéed with onions and garlic while and Oyster mushrooms are best briefly heated with butter and oil. Both pair well on top of chicken or beef. OR add mushrooms to vegetable stock for extra flavor.
     
  • Black currant jam: Great on toast, swirled into this weeks Butterworks Farm's yogurt or added to your morning oatmeal.
     
  • Andouille Sausage is a cajun cuisine, with smoked characteristics seasoned with garlic, pepper, onions, and seasonings.
     
  • Halibut is a lean and mild tasting fish. Click Here for 12 easy halibut recipes!
