Summery September Recipes

We might have turned over the page to the month of September, but the gardens continue to ripen with an abundance of late-summer gems, from luscious heirloom and cherry tomatoes to ripe, juicy melons and peaches. Also including zucchini, sweet peppers, cucumbers and Patty Pan squash, plus a beautiful bounty of herbs and greens, this week’s lineup is accented by such provisions as Pain au Levain bread, Italian olive oil and flaky sea salt, Harmony Field’s sheep’s milk feta and chicken eggs. Enjoy!

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Baked Feta with Honey
A kick of honey lends a sweet touch to the salty cheese; serve with grilled bread crostini!

Summer Peach & Heirloom Tomato Salad
Incredibly fresh and light, this colorful salad is accented by a robust heirloom tomato vinaigrette.

Grilled Heirloom Tomato Vinaigrette
In addition to this week’s salad, this bright and robust dressing is wonderful tossed with pasta, or drizzled over steamed or grilled vegetables.

Cucumber & Melon Salad with Basil
Juicy and incredibly crisp, this salad always receives rave reviews.

Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone, Pistachios & Balsamic Glaze
Peaches off the grill are a true summer delight—we particularly love this salty, sticky-sweet topping.

Season to Season Recipes

With the swing from cloudy and drippy to amazingly-sunny and crisp, the weather has us—and the gardens—towing the line between summer and fall. Luckily, that also means that we are enjoying produce from both seasons as summery favorites like heirloom tomatoes, corn, late season blueberries and unique purple Islander peppers continue to delight alongside new offerings like Delicata squash and beautiful Shipova pears. Also included: Gruyère cheese bread, farm-fresh eggs and red wine so you can toast to whatever season is at hand today.

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Watermelon Radish & Arugula Salad
Top this crisp combination with a garlic-lemon dressing and freshly-grated Romano cheese.

Broccolini Salad with Olives & Sun-Dried Tomatoes
This salad packs in the flavor!

Vegetable Frittata
Packed with colorful peppers and summer squash, this easy frittata boasts incredibly fresh flavor.

Roasted Delicata Squash
Buttery and incredibly delicious, Delicata squash is wonderful roasted with just a touch of brown sugar and red pepper flakes.

Baked Fennel
This classic Italian finocchi gratinati is simply sublime.
