FARM FOOD FRIDAY!
Ok well it’s Sunday but if you’re wondering what to do with all those veggies you got from us here’s an easy recipe!
Grilled Veggie Ribbons:
Take all the veggies and slice them on a mandoline or just use a veggie peeler to peel into ribbons. Curl them up in a pan, drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper then put in the oven at 450 for 10 minutes or put on a hot grill in a grill pan. Then chop up all your herbs and sprinkle on top. We bet your kids will even eat these veggies!

Ms. Mahanes Corn Fritters!
Here is our first recipe for our FARM FOOD FRIDAY series which we got from Ms. Mahanes. She was so nice to let us know what she did with the produce she bought. Thanks Ms Mahanes! Sure looks good! She wrote:
"Wanted to show you what we made from the fabulous Farmboys Corn and Green Onions from my new favorite cookbook.
All the beast,
(from The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook)
1 1/2 cups corn kernels, fresh (from 2 to 3 ears)
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1/3 cup finely chopped dry-cured chorizo sausage (optional)
2 large eggs, separated
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil or vegetable oil
In a large bowl, combine the corn, scallions, chorizo (if using), egg yolks, and melted butter. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Fold the flour mixture into the corn batter.
With a mixer, in a separate bowl, beat the egg whites to soft peaks. Gently fold the whites into the corn batter.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. In batches, drop the fritters in mounds into the oil, about 4 at a time. Cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.
Serve plain, or with mayo mixed with a little Siracha sauce and lemon juice or ancho chili powder, or with just a drizzle of maple syrup.
For jazzier fritters, add some shredded sharp Cheddar to the corn mixture.
