CLOVERFOODLAB CAMBRIDGE, MA

29 August, 2008: I couldn’t pass inspection without the name of the business, city, and phone number on both sides of the truck. This lettering has to be 2″ tall. Since the entire truck is going to get torn apart and re-built in a few days, I kept this simple. These letters were $2.48 for a package from Dickson Brothers.… Read More

Clover marmalade

22 October, 2009: We’ve talked about it before, but it took Jeremiah’s initiative to make it happen. We create a lot of citrus waste when we make our orange juice and lemon juice every day. So instead of throwing it away (or composting it) we’re making it into marmalade. Enjoy some with your next pop-over or muffin. Read More

Round food and new apples: meet the Rosh Hashanah kit

We’ve learned that… Read More

Late summer box is here!

12 August, 2021: We didn’t know if this box could happen this year. When we heard tomatoes were late due to the torrential rains earlier this summer, we were worried that we would have to skip the most popular meal box we’ve done to date: The Late Summer Box. We screamed, “Nooooooo!” Now thanks in part to this heat, heirloom tomatoes are here and… Read More
