Spring Delights & Delicacies Recipes

From red radishes and asparagus to the season’s first fiddleheads, spring produce continues to abound, both in the garden and foraged from the wild. This week’s box takes full advantage of these new delights with such complementary provisions as farm-fresh eggs, Italian black Nerone rice, rosemary organic honey, and Piranske sea salt. Add to this a loaf of Pain au Levain, baking chocolate, flavorful salad greens, fragrant herbs and Meyer lemons, and let the flavors of spring delight everyone at the table (especially Mom on her special day!).

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Sautéed Fiddlehead Ferns
These bright green fronds lend themselves to many of the same uses as asparagus. Here they shine with a simple dressing of butter and lemon juice.

Asparagus with Salt & Pepper Whipped Cream
Topped with decadent cream, this simple side dish is just delicious.

Braised Red Radishes with Shallots
Tender and juicy, these satisfying radishes are accented by fresh parsley and balsamic vinegar.

Charred Red Spring Onion Gremolata
This smoky sauce is wonderful slathered on grilled bread.

Grilled Asparagus with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette
A fresh blend of lemon juice, olive oil and garlic adds big flavor to grilled asparagus stalks.

Mint Simple Syrup
It’s going to get warm this weekend: splash a dash of this simple syrup into a glass of lemonade for a sweet cool-down.
