FROM FARM TO GRILL
If ever there was an official grilling week-end this would be it. If Memorial Day is the kick-off of the grilling season, the Fourth is the pinnacle.
If you are hosting, you may have to borrow an extra grill because the market will have so much to offer your Weber this weekend. Southtown Farms alone has 8 different varieties of sausage – from classic brats to maple – in addition to hot dogs made with local pork and grass-fed beef patties. They and Stone Barns will also be offering spatch-cock chicken. And Letterbox Collective has organic chicken as well as pork and rabbit.
And, then, of course, there’s fish: hake, tuna, swordfish – all great on the grill, especially when it’s from Pura Vida. Make it easy on yourself and prepare some kebabs in advance. Use the summer squash that is just turning up and the mushrooms at Madura (larger portobellos are the vegetarian answer to a burger btw.). Make potato salad sides, snap peas, cole slaw and grilled onions for all your meats.Read More
