Sugar Snap Peassugar-snap-peas

From: Stoltzfus Family Farm (Family Farm in Vernon Center, NY)

Sugar snap peas are all about texture, sweetness, and crunch. They don’t take long to cook—1 to 2 minutes max. Resist overcooking—you’ll end up with sad, limp peas. Cut your snaps in thirds crosswise, or halve lengthwise on a long diagonal. Cut them before or after steaming. If boiling, cut them afterwards or else the tumbling action of boiling water will free the peas from their pods. Enjoy raw for a snack. More info

Clingstone Peachesthree-peaches

From: Yonder Farms (Family Farm in Valatie, NY)

A summer delight. Luscious, juicy peaches are great for fresh eating, of course, but they also make a fantastic dessert when thrown on the grill and served warm with whipped cream—delicious! Clingstone peaches have flesh that clings to their pits. They are softer, sweeter, and juicier than freestone peaches and hence sought after for canning and preserving (commercially canned peaches are all clingstones). Most grocery stores only carry freestones, so buying clingstones from your farmer is a dream come true for them. More info

Red Beetsred-beets

From: Markristo Farm (Certified Organic in Hillsdale, NY) or Juniper Hill Farm (Certified Organic in Wadhams, NY)

Did you know that a cup of raw beets has only 58 calories? Beets are in the same family as chard and spinach. Chop and slow roast at 350 for 1 hour. Julienne the beets and toss with oil and lemon—beautiful and tasty. Roast, sauté, steam, and more… but try not to boil! Boiling sacrifices the quality and flavor of the beet and releases an unpleasant aroma. More info
