Gifts from the Garden Recipes

Our April showers seemed to have been followed by even more May showers, but despite the unseasonably cold weather, the garden is providing a colorful pick-me-up for this week’s delivery. Including lilac-hued chive blossoms, ruby-red rhubarb, and verdant rapini, leeks and arugula, in addition to radishes, asparagus and baby potatoes, the spring-fresh box also features egg grattini, Andouille sausage, chicken stock, farm-fresh eggs, and green garlic. Enjoy!

1¼ cups sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
