Crowd-pleasing Grilled Chicken!
 
 
PRO TIP: We LOVE these BBQ sauces from Lillies slathered on chicken. Grillers, beware! If your BBQ sauce has some sugar in it (most do) baste only during the last few minutes of cooking and then when your chicken is resting before serving to ensure that your chicken does not burn 
on the outside.

Grilling Fish & Seafood
 
 
 
 
Grilling fish can take practice but with some great tips, you can master it! If you must grill directly on the grates, ensure that they are very clean and piping hot. Coat your fish lightly in oil and cook skin side down covered, without turning for best results. For fillets and whole fish, this foolproof tip will ensure your fillet stays together (and with all of it's delicious juices!). Place the fish on a soaked cedar plank or a lightly oiled piece of heavy-duty foil, then grill (covered), over medium indirect heat until the fillet separates slightly when pierced with a fork.
Don't forget, Nantucket Fresh Catch is at the Farm everyday with the freshest regional seafood around!

Local is Lovely! These beautiful regional products from Rhode Island food hub, Farm Fresh Rhode Island, are the perfect compliment to your locally sourced meal. We especially love the canned peaches, the strawberry applesauce and Maine Grain's fresh flours

Warning: May cause the following symptoms!
 
 
 
 
A sudden unwillingness to share, constant sweet tooth pangs, feelings of longing, strong urges to skip dinner and go straight to dessert.
 
 
 
 
"Our ice creams have a uniquely smooth texture and buttercream body, with bright flavor and clean finish...You may notice the absence of a long list of stabilizers and emulsifiers on our label; we prefer the more complex process of building texture and flavor without them. Our flavors stand alone straight from the pint or melt perfectly into a fruit pie, birthday cake, crumble, crisp, or cookie—the perfect accessory for your dessert."
