New Roots Recipe for July
This month’s produce highlight is organically grown zucchini, which our farmers have plenty of. New Roots farmers are now at the Wednesday farmers’ market. Come visit the IRC booth every Wednesday from 4 – 8 pm, at 127 N. Central, between McKinley and Pierce. And of course you can still see us Saturdays from 8 am to noon. Come get your zucchini and try making Zucchini Quick Bread!
Zucchini is a good source of protein, thiamin, niacin, dietary fiber and vitamins A, B6, C and K, but some children seem to have a radar detecting any nutritious food parents try to feed them. Try making Zucchini Quick Bread using our organically grown zucchini. You can use less sugar to taste. It’s nutritious and delicious!
