Get Your Greens

This summer I’ve been much alternating between watermelon and cantaloupe, with the occasional exotic sweet melon thrown in for change. This bucket shows you the rind from the sweetest, ripest, most fragrant honeydew – the first one of the season. Nothing compares to its syrupy sweetness!

What you can see (clockwise left to right):

  • Kale stems (just can’t wait for them to cook down)
  • Honeydew rind
  • Orange peels
  • Lemon halves (6)
  • Rose leaves
  • Organic local apple core
  • Vidalia onion skins

What you can’t see:

  • Lots more honeydew rind
  • Garlic skins
  • Banana peels

What I made with all of that:

  • Honeydew Orange Banana Smoothie
  • Kale Sauteed with Onion & Garlic & Cider Vinegar
  • Lemon Caper Chicken

Have a great Labor Day Weekend all!
