What's Fresh Now: June 2019

Rhubarb

June marks Rhubarb season in the Catskills! Masonville Valley Farm one of our newest members sells rhubarb and check out our Farmers’ Markets of the Week each week for where to find your local rhubarb. Remember- the more red the stalk, the sweeter the rhubarb!

Beef

Looking for a simple and tasty recipe to ramp up your grill game? Start grilling season with this steak kabob recipe featuring mushrooms, peppers, onions, and a delicious garlic butter sauce that we found on our Pinterest page! Here are some Pure Catskills members who offer local beef: Bramley Mountain Farm, Weinland Farms, or click here for more options. Happy grilling!

Quick tip: Kabob ingredients will stay juicier longer if they are touching one another (but not crammed) on the skewers.

Milk

National Dairy Month is a great way to start the summer with nutrient-rich dairy foods. From calcium to potassium, dairy products like milk contain nine essential nutrients which may help to better manage your weight, reduce your risk for high blood pressure, osteoporosis and certain cancers. Whether it's protein to help build and repair the muscle tissue of active bodies or vitamin A to help maintain healthy skin, dairy products are a natural nutrient powerhouse. Pick up some fresh milk from producers like Tonjes Farm Dairy, Eternal Flame Farm Market, and Byebrook Farm. To find more milk producers in your area, search here.

Father's Day Gift Idea: Whiskey/Bourbon

There is nothing more special than giving your dad the gift of buying local this year! Did you know whiskey can last forever if un-opened? “Whiskey” is a Gaelic word which means “water of life.” Drink local this month, and pick up some whiskey or bourbon from neighbors at KyMar Farm Winery and Distillery, Union Grove Distillery or Kerrs Creek Distillery!
