Stop Sign Farm Kitchen - New Favorites
New favorite kitchen tool - herb scissors! These ingenious little guys make short work of fresh herbs and come with a handy comb that ensures nothing goes to waste and clean up is fast and easy (BONUS: No trip to the ER required). Found mine for under $10 on Amazon.
New favorite ingredient - fresh garlic! Ever wonder why we eat garlic cured and dried? Well, because we have to. We are so fortunate that garlic cures, dries, and keeps so that we can enjoy its pungent flavor in our food all year long. But, now - just now and not for long - fresh garlic is out there in the markets and farm stands and I say go get some quick! It's a little juicy and the little cloves pop out of their skins with a simple squeeze and the bright fresh flavor perks up just about anything. We roasted it with other spring veggies last night and I threw it in the soup today. So good. Get a lot - use some fresh now and hang the rest in your kitchen to dry.
