It was great to have more folks discovering us for the first time last week, and to have many folks return. Thank you all so much for spending part of your Saturday with us! We'd love to welcome more visitors to Chocolates and Tomatoes Farm at 7957 Hollow Road, Middletown, MD 21769, on Saturday, 9am-1pm.
New this week at Chocolates and Tomatoes Farm
Emerging from the Chocolates and Tomatoes Field and Making a Grand Entrance at the Market on June 10
Yellow candy onions (pictured left) -- these mild gems can be diced and used raw for relish or salsa, sliced and carmelized for your veggie or cheese-steak sandwiches, and used in plenty of other raw and cooked dishes where you want a light onion flavor.
Cilantro (pictured middle), and if you did not grow up in the US, you probably call these coriander leaves --one of my personal favorite herbs to put on a taco or in guacamole and salsa; if you have only had dried cilantro, try it fresh -- the aroma and flavor difference will be startling! It has its best flavor when you use it raw or stir it into something hot right at the very end!
White beets (pictured right; joining the red beets that appeared last week) -- personally, I find the non-red beets have a mellower flavor. Great for folks who already love beets, but dislike how red beets turn everything near them (including your hands!) pink or red.
Limited Quantity first of the season blueberries (not pictured)!
