Your Peachy Guide to Organic Stone Fruit

Posted by Boston Organics on Aug 8, 2022 10:15:00 AM

Stone fruit has an element of nostalgia, bringing to mind memories of sweet, sticky hands on a hot summer day—picking through pint containers of little yellow-orange fruit at the farmers’ market and popping open vats of aromatic preserves put by for colder times. Luckily, we don’t have to wait until peak summer in New England to enjoy organic stone fruit season!

Why Organic Wild Blueberries Are Actually Worth The Hype

Posted by Boston Organics on Aug 3, 2022 11:45:00 AM

If you’re a native New Englander or longtime Boston resident, then August is probably one of your favorite months for fresh, organic fruit. Not only are juicy heirloom tomatoes ready for harvest and stone fruit at its peak, it’s also the heart of the short but spectacular wild blueberry season.

The Boston Organics Community includes some pretty talented farmers, but there are some things that nature simply does better than any human can. One such thing is growing blueberries.

We’ve had organic blueberries available as an add-on for several weeks, but wild blueberries—the kind that you dreamt about as a kid—are in another league entirely.

Summer Cocktail Recipes

Posted by Boston Organics on Jul 30, 2022 11:15:00 AM

Ingredients

  • 6 slices red plum, as ripe and juicy as possible
  • 4 to 5 sage leaves, stems removed
  • 1/4 to 1/2 oz simple syrup (more for a sweeter drink)
  • splash (about 1/8 ounce) fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 oz rye whiskey

Recipe

1. Add the plums, sage, and simple syrup to the bottom of a shaker, and muddle (or smoosh vigorously with the back of a spoon) until the plums form a nice mush.

2. Fill the shaker with ice and add the lemon juice and whiskey. Shake and then double strain into a cocktail glass.

For non-alcoholic beverage, substitute in seltzer or unsweetened juice! Enjoy responsibly! 

Whether mixology is your thing or you'd rather pop open a can or bottle and pour it over ice we've got flavored sparkling waters, shrubs, ciders and kombuchas that are ready-to-drink or the perfect base for your favorite concoction, or one of ours!

Taco Tuesday!

Posted by Boston Organics on Jul 26, 2022 9:30:00 AM

Tacos are not just for Tuesdays! They're the perfect-middle-of-the week-last minute supper; great for quick lunches; an excellent way to use up leftovers and a crowd pleaser.

So, open the fridge and pull out some cheese, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, avocado, hot sauce and whatever leftovers you've got on hand. Chicken would be perfect. Boiled eggs, why not? Roasted or grilled vegetables, YES! Fish, sure!

Get a can of beans out of the pantry, make some jarred salsa too. Chop up some onions - any kind will do - and cilantro if you've got it and let everyone make their own. Or get fancy and quesadilla it up by heating a frying pan or griddle, sandwich the filling between two tortillas with cheese between the filling and wrapper to 'glue' it together and cook on each side until heated through.

Some fresh lime juice is always welcome to brighten everything up. Enjoy!
