It's summertime, which means we're all craving cool treats. An easy, delicious one is homemade ice cream. With local milk available from Progress Milk Barn and Ryals Rocking R Dairy, you can make ice cream in no time. Whole milk, with its high butterfat content, is best for ice cream. Try making ice cream using Ryals goat milk for a tangier flavor. Check out these recipes from Southern Living and give homemade ice cream a try this week!

Last week, we had beautiful fruit from Mississippi grower Jesse Nagle at our Thursday market - peaches, apples and watermelons. Stop by this week and get your fruit fix - just be sure to come early. Jesse tends to sell out early. We love pairing his apples with basil and honey spread on baguette or over yogurt. Fresh and delicious!

Want a new spin on ice cream? Try this Frozen Creole Cream Cheese. Before its resurgence in the early twenty-first century, Creole cream cheese was either eaten with a little cream and sugar or salt and pepper for breakfast, or served frozen as dessert. Top with fresh peaches or drizzle with honey for some added pizzaz.
