In my continuing obsession with local Farmer's Markets and Farm Stands, I discovered Little Miss Sweet Pea's in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. Over the course of the past year I have been making pilgrimages to Little Miss Sweet Pea's, a home grown Farmers Market Co-op who proudly supports local farmers and growers, for fresh, locally made (and I mean amazing) butter. Their butter is churned from cream from a local creamery and has a higher butterfat content than any other butter I've used. It makes unbelievable sauces; and, when used with their farm fresh eggs, pastries and tart shells are to die for! -- butterfat and bright, yellow yolks make a huge difference.
Mirai sweet corn. Now, I'm not usually a corn fan; but this corn changed me ... you can eat it right off the cob raw! It is sweet, a little savory and not at all the starchy, stick to your teeth glue you usually get. Its destined for a great corn chowder. And the grape tomatoes ... they will be roasting away to intensify their flavor and well, turn them into candy.
