Baby Bok Choy- Stir Fry

Bok Choy is an excellent carrier to any stir-fry/sauté. Our baby bok choy has a sweet mild flavor of celery/cabbage. Just give it a rough chop and add during the last 3-5 minutes of cooking (also great in soups/stews). Use the whole plant. The tops will wilt down like spinach and the bottom “stem” part of the leaf will stay crunchy, similar to celery.

Candied Mint Leaves

These mint leaves – sugared, crystallized, candied, or however you describe them – are super simple and a lovely way to top off a scoop of ice cream and a variety of other delights!

Always rinse and dry herbs before use to avoid consuming incidental contaminants.

As a Vegan alternative you can use ground flax seeds and water (flax eggs) instead of egg white. You can also substitute your favorite sweetener, fine sugar, fructose, or granulated Stevia instead of sugar.

  • As with any usage of raw egg, take appropriate precautions in handling properly and obtain eggs from a reputable source.

Fresh Mint Tea Juleps

By mid summer, the mint in most gardens has grown knee-high and is threatening to take over. Don’t panic—harvest a few armloads and turn the bounty into a refreshing drink. Plan on making a couple of batches, both with and without alcohol: Adults will swoon over the smooth, bourbon-laced juleps; kids will enjoy the lightly sweetened herbal tea all on its own.

Cooks’ note: Mint tea can be made 2 days ahead and chilled.
