Now that we have had sunny days, the spinach is finally ready.

Plus it's extra sweet, thanks to the cold!


Spinach!

Red Bordeaux Spinach!


Spinach goes very well with marjoram, onions, and potatoes—all of which we happen to have. :)

For a great, simple meal, we recommend a vegetable dish featuring our spinach, onions, potatoes, and marjoram, which will pair very well with some pork from our friends at P V Farm Stand. Visit Frank, down the corridor from us in Pawtucket on Saturday, for his suggestions!

Marjoram Zaatar 


The aromatic herb Marjoram Zaatar is often used in Middle Eastern cooking, and is the primary ingredient in the Middle Eastern spice mixture za’atar.

Both the majoram zaatar and the mix za’atar are very versatile. Try them on meats, veggies, rice, and in homemade savory breads.

Here’s a simple recipe to make the spice blend za’atar using our majoram zaatar:

  • 1/4 cup sumac
  • 1/4 cup marjoram zaatar
  • 2 tablespoons thyme
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

If you use this mix, or the majoram zaatar on its own, please let us know how you like it! Share your pics and what you did on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) by tagging us #blueskysfarm or @blueskysfarm.
