Summer 2017 - Week #7

Featured Producers: Bill Mares and Dan Goossen of BTV Honey

Dan and Bill have been producing hyper-local raw liquid and comb honey in Vermont for over forty years! The bees of BTV ("Bee Tee Vee") Honey live at various locations around the Burlington area, including UVM and here at the Intervale, and gather pollen and nectar from local flower species to produce a unique and tasty product. The honey is never heated, and has many beneficial properties and a great flavor. From the verdant valley of the Winooski River to the busy streets of Burlington, BTV bees work tirelessly gathering nectar to make this all-natural, unprocessed, and delicious honey.

Recipes & Cooking Tips

Eat This First: Fresh garlic and blueberries. Don't rinse blueberries until right before you're ready to eat them.

Storage Tip: The garlic in your baskets this week is not quite the same as the papery bulbs you buy at the grocery store--it has been recently harvested without curing, and so should be stored in the fridge instead of on the counter.
