Juanita's First Thursday Creations

September 3, 2015 - 3:30pm - 5:30pm
Potsdam Co-op - 24 Elm St., Potsdam

Juanita's 1st Thursday Creations presents Polenta Cake With Blackberries and Fresh Corn, a fascinating recipe utilizing fresh berries, fresh kernels of corn, and a surprise ingredient, thyme. This wonderful herb marries several flavors into a sumptuous blend. It is a high protein dessert due to the polenta, tofu, and almond milk, and is entirely egg and dairy-free. This recipe is a great way to use the garden's seasonal berries, corn, and herbs to create a feast for the palate.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Order Peaches by the Bushel

The deadline to order peaches by the bushel is now Friday, August 21 at 10:00 am. Peaches will arrive on Thursday, August 27.

*Due to the recent hot weather, peaches are ripening quicker than anticipated, therfore forcing us to move our order deadline. We apologize for any inconvenience.
