Your lunch $ fights climate change

23 January, 2018: While we like to think all our food at Clover helps the environment, there’s something special about soup.

We use no freezers or microwaves, and all the nutrients… Read More

Boston loves medlars! Only 5 days to try!

12 January, 2018: Who would have thought? We launched the Medlar Sandwich yesterday. And it was a blockbuster. We sold 500 medlar sandwiches, and sampled around 500 more medlars and jam to folks who were curious. This is the type of ingredient you won’t find in most restaurants, definitely not fast food ones like ours. It’s hard to find (it… Read More

Mislabeled Medlars

23 December, 2017: You think you know everything about fruits, and then you meet a medlar. It comes into season in the winter. And it needs to “blet” (or rot, or ferment, however you want to call it) a little bit before it is yummy. For this reason, medlars have been used as metaphors (kinda inappropriate by today’s standards) by many… Read More

Broken garlic coming to Clover

20 November, 2017: Ray, farmer at Next Barn Over, has been planting garlic. You can grow garlic too. Separate the head into single cloves. You leave the skin on each clove, and plant it. This won’t work with grocery store garlic, because those are sprayed to stop the clove from sprouting. So find some garlic from a farmer you trust.… Read More
