Feature Recipe:

Roasted Garlic
Farmer Gavin grows amazing garlic (heads the size of your head - almost)! If you've never tried roasted garlic, you're in for a treat. Soft, buttery and slightly sweet, roasting transforms cloves into a mellower appetizer.  Try it this week - perfect for cooler fall evenings.
