If you aren’t a fan of snow peas, you need to try them fresh from a local source: they’re sweet and crisp, unlike starchy store-bought peas. Always buy fresh and local! You’ll be amazed at the difference in the produce when compared to what is sold in the grocery store. If you go through a lot of produce, consider growing some at home to help reduce your grocery bill. We find this planting guide a helpful tool when out in the garden.

Our Eastern Shore Honey makes a fantastic glaze for seafood. The sweetness mellows out while cooking, and the sugars in the honey will give a great glaze to the shrimp. If you decide to make the shrimp on the grill, the smokiness of the cooking process will really add dimension to your meal.
