Summer Veggies are officially here! That means tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, just to name a few.
This is one of the best moments to be eating locally. Summer veggies are here in their full glory and diversity, and there are many new veggies in the shares this month.
Unfortunately, tomatoes cannot set fruit in the hottest part of the summer (mid-July through August) so these sweet treats are a juicy flash in the pan June-July. Don’t miss out on Texas tomato season, we beg you!
For many, summer vegetables like tomatoes are synonymous with canning. Our tried and true canning resource is the USDA’s Complete Guide for Home Canning. If you’re interested in dabbling but are new to canning and concerned about food safety, we can’t recommend this resource enough. These recipes are vetted, tested, and well-loved.
Without further adieu, some summer recipes to get you cooking!
