June in Season
Summer is the time for pesto. Bundles of basil, stacks of scapes and crates of cauliflower are abundant at the Collingswood Farmers’ Market.
Kohlrabi is part of the cabbage family (Brassicas) and close friends with kale. The cruciferous vegetable is nicknamed ‘space cabbage’ for its alien-looking appearance with leafy stalks sprouting from the globe (or bulb) in no particular arrangement.
As far back as I can remember, my mom made squash pie during the summer months and I loved it. Squash pie is crustless zucchini quiche that forms a thin browned 'crust' while baking.
