Chive Blossom Vinegar

This punchy vinegar is fantastic incorporated into salad dressings; just swap it one-to-one with your favorite vinegar in recipes!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup chive blossoms
1 cup white wine vinegar

Method:
1. Soak chive blossoms in water to clean, then dry them using a salad spinner.

2. Place chive blossoms into a large canning jar so that the jar is filled about halfway with blossoms. Fill jar with the vinegar, covering the blossoms completely.

3. Let blossoms steep in the vinegar at least overnight or up to several days in a cool, dark place. Strain blossoms from vinegar and pour liquid into a clean jar. Refrigerate for the longest shelf life (the vinegar should last several weeks in the fridge).

3-4 spring onions
3 small lemons
2 garlic cloves, skins on
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons parsley, chopped

Method:
1. Cut off the roots of the onions, and trim about an inch off their greens. Cut the lemons into thin slices, reserving the ends for another use. Toss the scallions, lemon slices, and garlic with the oil, salt and pepper.

2. Grill until charred on all sides, being careful not to burn the garlic. Let cool in a bowl.

3. Peel the garlic and mince. Finely chop the lemons and onions. Mix everything together with the parsley. Add salt if desired.

Cajun Comforts Recipes

From organic Andouille sausage, Bell peppers, and okra to light and fluffy corn muffins, the soulful flavors of the deep South await this week, blending beautifully with Pacific Northwest produce like peppery arugula greens, rhubarb, leeks, radishes and spring onions. Inspired by our recent cooking class here at the farm with Matt Lewis of Where Ya At Matt?, who has kindly shared the recipe to his famous gumbo with us (see recipes), this comforting box also includes farm-fresh eggs, citrus fruit and our signature chicken stock to complement the spread. Enjoy!
