Coming in Fresh

It’s almost broccoli season here at CKWL.  You can see how close we’re getting below.  Did you know that boiling vegetables actually transfers many of the important nutrients into the water, which get tossed?  Steaming is a much better option, one that we’re planning to use.

And while broccoli “trees” can be fun for kids, we’re planning to turn the stems into some delicious broccoli slaw.  Mmmm, there’s nothing quite like garden fresh produce!
