    Curious if there are any dairies on the southcoast that do delivery to the Marion/Mattapoisett area.

      Good question. If you are looking for raw milk you have to go to the farm to buy it (state law). Otherwise try Hornstra in Norwell or Crescent Ridge in Sharon or Arruda in Tiverton RI. Thanks for reaching out.

  7. Hi there Edible South Shore Folks- I am new to the area, the new farm manager at Colchester Neighborhood Farm in Plympton, MA. I would love for you to profile our farm and CSA!

  8. Hi Edible South Shore & South Coast Blog,

    We’re Smart Lunches, an innovative online meal service that helps parents, kids and schools! We’ve read your blog and share your passion for food. I especially liked the post on Delicious Dumplings.

    We would love to find a way to work with you to get the word out about Smart Lunches. Just an idea is that we could do a guest blog post highlighting some of our healthy meal options. To learn more about us, you can visit our website, http://www.smartlunches.com.

    I look forward to potentially being able to partner with you!

    All the best,

    Recommend you reach out to Kevin’s Honey Farm in Canton MA for an article. Not only does he raise bees and offer beautiful honey and things made from beeswax, he is a savior of beehives that happened to locate in unfavorable locations:) Really amazing! Helping to save and expand our bee population while creating wonderful products!

    I believe in the Winter Edition there was a recipe for Lebanese Stuffed Chicken, and I think one of the Chefs was Ruth Cardoo, anyone still have it??

    I don’t see a search button, but wondering if you have new ideas for my bumper crop of strawberries? We enjoy fresh strawberries & bananas with cottage cheese in the morning, adding them into salads at dinner, done strawberry rhubarb pie, strawberry shortcake, and trifle already….looking for something new, preferably without adding much sugar or cooking completely. Since I pick them just before fully ripe, to beat the pests from enjoying them before we can, I need to sweeten them slightly in order to get kids to eat them raw. Any ideas? Thanks!

      If you have a dehydrator, we really like strawberry fruit leather. When the strawberries are super fresh, they need little to no sweeteners. You can flash freeze them and store for the winter. They’re great in smoothies, ice cream and as a topping for pancakes or waffles. With tons of strawberries you could also make jam. I’m always amazed at how good fresh strawberry jam tastes in the middle of January. If you’re concerned about the sugar, there are low and no sugar pectins available.
