Partner Product: Delta Blues Rice
Delta Blues Rice is grown, artisan-milled and packaged in small batches on the Arant family’s multi-generational farm that has been operating for nearly a century. The rich, Mississippi Delta soil, has given birth to agriculture and the Blues, feeding both the body and the soul of the country. Since its launch, the versatile pantry must-haves rooted in Southern culinary tradition have picked up awards from notable national players like Southern Living and Garden & Gun. They are truly a farm-to-table operation. The family oversees and carries out each step that brings the crop to your table—planting, harvesting, milling and packaging. On Arant Acres, they use only the highest quality seed and mill their harvest to order in small batches to ensure the freshest rice is provided every time. Because only one variety of rice is used, the flavor is rich, consistent and far superior to the typical brands found at the grocery store.
What do I do with that?!: Dandelion Greens
Dandelion greens are super good for you! There are lots of ways to benefit from this bitter tasting leaf. Saute or braise them with lots of garlic and lemon-serve them as a side or mix in with pasta topped with a cheese like Parmesan. Juice them for a quick liver cleanse. You can incorporate them into a salad tossed in a citrusy vinaigrette. Swap out half the amount of basil for a batch of pesto. Full or Vitamins A, C, K and B2, dandelion greens also have more iron and protein than spinach! So eat up!
Almost too pretty to eat!
