We love to lightly bread & fry our lincod for fish tacos. Adding a little avo, cilantro, lime and cabbage slaw on top.  We hope you enjoy!

We love using our “holy” grilling pan ~ keeping the mess outside!
We’ll roast our beets and top them on our salads throughout the week, and stuff our bell peppers with a melody of yummy goodness. The blackberries and strawberries are amazingly sweet, we’ll top them over some fresh homemade coconut ice cream.

Crop Talk ~ Fun Facts ~ Legends ~ Tales
We’re excited to share Bautisa Farm’s first harvest blackberries with you this week – one of our favorite berries! In honor of this, we decided to find a few fun facts about them for you. The New World Encyclopedia says there is reason to believe that blackberries have been consumed for at least 2,000 years, but they weren’t always just a tasty treat to consume fresh or in sweet desserts. Historically, their roots and shoots were used to relieve digestive ailments, mouth sores, and bleeding gums. Furthermore, Native Americans used the stems for rope and the berries for hair and fabric dyes. Strangely, blackberries were also once part of a legend in the UK that claimed that blackberries picked after Michaelmas (a Christian festival held on September 29th) had been claimed by the Devil. It was said he left his mark by spitting, urinating, or trampling on them. It turns out this was a somewhat useful tale since the moist, cool weather that follows late September makes blackberries prone to toxic molds. Interesting stuff!
