Happy Week 7 of the Spring CSA!

Have you ever wondered where the name Belle Isle cress comes from? 17th century Portugese sailors shipwrecked on Belle Isle for a harsh Nor’easter winter survived because of it, and took this name back to Europe with them. An item of commercial markets in colonial times, land cress was eaten to ward off scurvy throughout winter. Belle Isle cress will prevent scurvy for your family, too! For a simple, elegant, tea time classic, try these Cress and Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches.

Water cress and land cress are different in a very simple way…water cress likes to grow in water, land cress is grown in the soil. They are nutritionally very similar, and Belle Isle cress (a land cress) can be substituted for any recipe that calls for water cress. Bon appetit!
