The Box Meal Plan: May 12th

Blueberry Peach Salsa

-Blueberry & peaches are a great combo for a variety of dessert dishes, but they also work well for savory dishes. Use this salsa for chips or as a topping for grilled chicken. If you don't have Aleppo pepper, mix equal parts paprika & cayenne as a substitute.

Strawberry Syrup

-Strawberries are almost done for the year, so this recipe ensures you will have some strawberry flavor for at least a little while longer. The corn syrup (not high fructose) called for in this recipe is the Karo syrup found at all grocery stores. Use this for your kid's strawberry milk or as a topping for pancakes.


Leek Salad

-I'll take leeks any day over the other alliums (garlic, onions, shallots). Their flavor is well-rounded and doesn't overpower dishes like garlic or onion. This Mediterranean salad is perfect fit for the summer produce in the box.

 Roasted Beet Ice Cream

-You'll need an ice cream maker for this one, but I guarantee its worth it. This recipe comes from Jenni's Splendid Ice Creams which is quite possibly the best home ice cream book ever. There's a number of expensive ice cream makers out there, but I've found this old-fashioned rock salt one to make ice cream as good as anything in stores without costing an arm and a leg.
