A BERRY GOOD THING
MULL THIS OVER
Say hello to the newest farmers at the North Park Farmers' Market. At Hillside Family Farms, the berries are ripe and sweet and the avocados are as creamy as can be. There's nothing like a bright sunshiny day to get us in the mood for berries of all shapes and sizes, but Hillside really brings their game when they bring the mulberries. Sweet like raspberries or blackberries but without the tart kick, you won't find mulberries crowding your typical produce isles. Even better? Mulberries contain resveratrol, the same potent, good-for-you antioxidant found in red grapes and red wine.
For a twist on your classic strawberry shortcake, split one of your favorite scones from Belen Bakery in half. Top each side with a mixture of Hillside Family Farms mullberries, Kawano Farms strawberries and Smit Farms blueberries chopped and macerated in a hint of sugar (and a splash of liqueur if you're so inclined). Top with a dollop of Springhill Farms' lemon quark and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint from Suzie's Farm. Breakfast or dessert? That's for you decide.
