  2. Stir to combine.
  3. Cook the seeds in a skillet on medium-low heat, turning them often until they’re fragrant and begin to brown. (They may begin to pop and sizzle, that’s OK.)
  4. As soon as the seeds are done, quickly add them to the slaw and stir well.
Expert Tips:
  1. Add chopped scallions or orange segments for extra flavor.
  2. Substitute celery seed for the cumin.

  • Anyone else have a potato pile mounting in their kitchen? Keep them dry and well ventilated! They do best when placed in a well-ventilated container (paper bag or bowl works) and stored in a dry location, away from sunlight, and at temperatures between 45 and 55 degrees F. Refrigerator temperatures tend to increase their sweetness and make them brown very quickly when fried. #potatoes #storage #storageveggies #paveggies #seasonal #vegetables #pennsylvania #rootveggies #buyfreshbuylocalpa #papreferred #paproduce #homegrownhappiness

Blueberry Hill Farm will have more cauliflower at the market on Saturday. Did you know that cauliflower is loaded with vitamin C? It's also a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, magnesium, and vitamin B-6. Try roasting some this weekend!
