July 2018 Monthly Challenge

8438 Views 84 Replies 21 Participants Last post by  koukouvagia
July in my small part of the world means the garden is coming in. The farmers market is going at full speed. Tomatoes, beans, squash, greens, and all kinds of good stuff are out on the tables.. One Asian American farmer has fruits, vegetables, and herbs that are exotic to the area. This gives a small rural farmers market an international feel. As a site that has members all over the world some of you may have to think fresh harvest even if it is winter where you are. The challenge for July is:

Fresh Produce: fruits, vegetables, and fresh herbs

It can be a meal or a dish. What you grow, what you bought, or what you foraged. Fungi are included.

Morning Glory, hope you are feeling better and able to participate this month.

Have Fun,

@millionsknives July 3rd, I couldn't score any real hard shells, surprised to get some that were not real soft.
Another entry.

Start with one zucchini from the garden, on the large side...

Note that you'll need a pretty big platter to serve it!
Reminds me how my father would always let a few grow to contest-size. We probably stuffed them some way, but just can't remember now. Had some yellow zucchinis recently, nice flavor, may you should try those next year.
Funny thing is, we didn't do anything special. That colossal zucchini just sort of happened by itself.

I never used to have my own garden, but now I understand the old story of the people who broke into somebody's car to put zucchini in their passenger seat....
You can grate them and pickle for relish.

National Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor's Porch Day is celebrated on August 8 this year, get your running shoes ready!
Everyone then should be making Mukver now, really:ückver-à-la-féta-what-is-it.88288/#post-526812

I fell in love with this stuff making it en casserole (instead of fried patties) then chilling.
Mary, I thought I had not much use for zucchini, till I tried Mukver!
Baharat, hmmm, a bunch of well known players that often go together in some combination. Just thinking out loud that today I heard mention of Goat Meat Spice Soup, kind of African origin and containing rather little known spices.
