      yellow summer squash

      From: Juniper Hill Farm (Certified Organic in Wadhams, NY) 

      We like our summer squash soft and sweet. Melt butter in a pan, then add onions and cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes. Add squash, salt, pepper, and brown sugar. Stir, then cover and cook for about 20 minutes, until squash is very soft. Remove the cover to let the excess liquid cook off.

      cherry tomatoes

      From: Juniper Hill Farm (Certified Organic in Wadhams, NY)

      This small variety of tomato has been cultivated since the early 1800s. Try roasting them whole (some will pop and splatter) until caramelized, then put on top of a cracker, puff pastry, bread, or whatever you’d like!

      celery

      From: Barber's Farm (Organically Grown in Middleburgh, New York)

      Celery grown by small farms isn't the same thing as the stuff of grocery stores. Grill, marinate, braise, broil, stir-fry, or make into a soup. We love celery noodles! Use a vegetable peeler or paring knife to shave celery into thin strips, then steam sauté. To steam sauté, throw just-washed veggies into a hot pan, crank the heat, lid, and let the water wilt the veggies a little. After 3 minutes, de-lid, stir, then sauté as normal. Add tomato sauce and Parmesan.


      Recipe Ideas:
      Celery Stir-Fry
      Hearty Celery Minestrone Soup
      Pasta with Celery and Lemon
      Celery Mint Salad
