With school on the horizon, I’m looking forward to the weather cooling down a bit and my garden slowing down. I’ve loved sharing the gardening process with my kids. It’s been rewarding to work alongside them through planning, planting, watering, weeding, growing and harvesting. Our trips to the Farmers’ Market and grocery store have been more meaningful as my kids make the connections between what we’re growing and what the farmers around us are growing. It’s also reaffirmed how important it is for us to use the produce we’ve grown in our garden in our everyday cooking.
To help you use your garden’s bounty, we’ve paired all of our garden treasures with each of our products:
Zucchini - Balsamic, Shallot & Black Garlic Spread
We grilled zucchini and used Bellisari’s Balsamic, Shallot & Black Garlic Spread as a finishing sauce.
Squash - Saigon Street Sauce
Like our zucchini, we grilled our squash and brushed it with Saigon Street Sauce.
Grilled Bell Peppers - Barista Sauce
Our bounty of bell peppers paired nicely grilled and brushed with our Barista Sauce.
Jalapeños - Blue Cheese, Honey & Shallot Spread
We stuffed our jalapeños with Bellisari’s Blue Cheese, Honey & Shallot Spread to offer a creamy balance to the peppers’ spice.
Cucumbers - Calabrian Pepper & Sweet Tomato Fennel Spread
We made a refreshing cucumber salad with our Calabrian Pepper & Sweet Tomato Fennel Spread and topped it off with a bit of feta cheese.
Green Beans - Blistered Jalapeño & Fig Spread
Crisp green beans paired nicely with the sweetness of the figs from our Blistered Jalapeño & Fig Spread.
