Aronia berries from Prairie Hollow Farm were the base for the Market Fruit Agro Dolce. Honey, apple cider vinegar and the berries come to a simmer, and then cook for 5 minutes on low heat.

While preparing the Coconut Cream Corn, Heather demonstrated how you might find a worm by the silky end of corn that hasn't been smothered in pesticides. When choosing between cutting away a worm vs. eating chemically-treated corn, I'd take the worm any day!

Coconut Cream Corn is a quick and easy recipe. Coconut milk, fresh corn kernels and salt cook down a bit, then fresh herbs and lime juice are added. For some kick, you can add chili flakes or finely chopped jalapeno.
