Locavore Recipes

Summer is finally here and the farmer's markets are brimming with fresh, locally grown produce. Here in Louisiana, fruits like apples, asian pears, blackberries, blueberries, cantaloupes, figs, muscadine grapes, peaches, and watermelon; herbs such as basil, and sage; veggies including asparagus, beans, butter beans, cherry tomatoes, creole tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, green onions, okra, peppers (bell and hot), potatoes, snap beans, squash (crook neck and zucchini), and sweet corn are all in abundance. To celebrate this fact, we're featuring some recipes from all over the web to highlight our amazing local produce. There are a plethora of recipes and resources to inspire us on the information super highway. We rarely go a day without checking it.
