Green Your Meal -- Dessert

Celebrating this summer? Snag the last of the rhubarb from a local farmers market or CSA and finish off your meal with strawberry and rhubarb crisp (Chicago’s Green City Market offers a tasty recipe). If the key ingredients aren't available in your area when life calls for a crisp, try raspberries, guava, or kiwi as strawberry stand-ins and cranberries or quince in place of rhubarb, depending on what's in season. Visit localharvest.org for places to buy local produce in your area. --Leigh Barkley
