Hey New Roots Readers,
Hope you’re having a great Friday so far! We know everyone is excited to get to their weekend, so let’s keep this short and sweet.
First we want to say thank you, because with your help, we raised $850 for fresh fruit that will go in the Food Bank Kids’ Packs. This is a huge help, and we all know how important a healthy diet is to children’s development, so give yourselves a round of applause.
We also wanted to show you our newest addition to the New Roots facility, a beautiful mural created by the very first NRO employee, Jared DelDeo. Jared now resides in Portsmouth, NH, but he came back for a visit and left this new addition behind our assembly line.
Warm days and warm nights are bringing on the late summer produce early and the quality has been fantastic! Eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, melons are all here. Soon, we’ll have local corn and larger tomatoes too 🙂 If you haven’t tried our medium-bodied New Roots Blend or Back Pedal coffee, they also make for a wonderful iced coffee during the warm weather.
We’ve got some delicious looking eggplant, banana sweet peppers, and more cherry tomatoes to come, so why not try this Eggplant Ratatouille recipe by Serious Eats?
