We had a great potluck with St Ignatius CSA!

Veggie crudites
Tomato, peach and cucumber salsa
Cheddar Cheese Ball
Vinta crackers (made in K-W)
Wellngton County Beef Steak
New Potatoes
Local Sweet Corn
Local Fresh Peas, Fennel, Summer Sguash
Apple and Celery Salad
Mixed Greens Salad (Home grown)
Peach, Red Currant and Gooseberry Clafouti
Honey and Oat Squares
Yellow Plums
Wellington County Beer
Wellington County Wine (Cox Creek)
Niagara Ice Wine

Great time with good friends who shared the bounty of their gardens in addition to food from local farms. Almost everything we ate was from Guelph or Wellington county. Local honey and maple syrup used in desserts, home grown basil, parsley, bay leaves, hot peppers as spices; even local garlic.

I read about Anita’s challenge late this week and quickly assembled 7 friends for a “Eat Local. Eat Fresh” potluck. It was the first sweet corn of the season, first week for Niagara peaches and local new potatoes, tomatoes just starting, while peas, and greens are still available. Great Timing!
