weekly Highlights

Candy Time Apples -Collins Family Orchards knows what time it is… it’s candy time. Of course you might poke a stick in these apples. Of course you might roll them in hot caramel. Of course you might, and with all the other rad veggies you’re getting this week, it would be the perfectly logical thing to do. However you roll, we are wishing you the spookiest, happiest Halloween!

Tomatillo-Add a sour note to your witches brew with these tomatillos from Alvarez Farms… we’re thinking of a hot and sour soup with Osprey Hills chicken, some purple potatoes, carrots, and onions, a little broth and these bad boys. They are excellent boiled or roasted til the skin blackens. Creepy awesome.

Jalapeño Peppers - Jalapeños are just one of over 200 pepper varietals growing in Alvarez's fields. While these small green peppers pack a punch, they're certainly not the hottest pepper around are make a great addition to pretty much everything (really, even in lemonade)! We're loving them on our eggs here at MilkRun.
