Ah, traditions. We hear a lot about them on the farm, and are very happily part of many family’s summer traditions. From corn to tomatoes to chicken salad and everything in between, we are fortunate to be at the table for many summer suppers and beach picnics.
Now that our Farm Grown tomatoes are picked daily, and Dave’s Organic Basil is here, a traditional Caprese Salad seems just the thing…Farm Tomatoes, Maplebrook Mozzarella...and it is. But new traditions are good, too.
We have some incredible new cheeses in the market; all from New England. My current favorite (and keep in mind, this changes daily!) is the Jasper Hill Bayley Hazen Blue. It’s a natural rinded blue cheese, made with raw milk. It’s tangy, but mild and full of flavor.
