This month at the January Market…
Looks like winter is really going to settle in. Not to worry, we have plenty for your soup pots! We’ll be bringing carrots, beets, parsnips, watermelon radish, leeks, cabbage, napa cabbage, potatoes, sweet potatoes, celeriac, sunchokes, butternut, acorn and kabocha squashes and shallots. We’ll also have a limited supply of spinach and spring mix. All certified organic. Hope to see you!
Recipe Idea: Napa Cabbage Salad!
Chop one head napa cabbage. Thinly slice or grate one carrot and one watermelon radish. Drizzle with olive oil, rice wine vinegar, lime juice and tamari. Other good additions include almonds, sunflower seeds, raisins, citrus… Toss and enjoy this crunchy delicious winter salad!
We have been enjoying the unusually warm weather, but now its back to reality. The goats have grown their fuzzy wooly winter coats, the wood shed is nearly full, and we’re ready to sit by the fire and start planning for next season. Come by and ask us about our farm boxes! They were a big hit last season, and we’re looking forward to doing it again! We will be at the Market on thursday with the last of our canned organic tomatoes. They make the best soup ever! We’ll also have a limited supply of beautiful Jacob Cattle beans, an heirloom that has been our favorite for years. And of course we will have the usual selection of jams and jellies, and potatoes, lots of them! Meet us at the Market!
Recipe Idea: Baked Beans
1 pound dried Jacob’s Cattle beans, cooked, cooking liquid reserved
½ pound Brown Boar bacon, chopped
1 cup finely diced onion
¼ cup molasses
2 tablespoons dry mustard
1 tablespoon spicy mustard
1 teaspoon dried ginger
Sea salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 300°F. Combine ingredients in a large oven-safe stockpot or casserole dish. Add about 4 cups of reserved bean cooking liquid; it should be enough to cover all ingredients completely. Cover and place in oven. Cook 3 hours, stirring every hour and adding a bit of extra reserved bean cooking liquid as needed to prevent drying out. Serve warm.
Stock up on RAW honey for the winter flu months soon ahead. We will have plenty of RAW honey on Thursday, honey is the only food on the planet that never goes bad. It has a Ph of about 3.5-3.7 and no bacteria can grow in RAW honey, that’s one reason why it so good for you during flu season.This weeks market special for Friends of the market: Buy any 3 pure beeswax lip balm tubes for only $10.00. choose from Pink Grapefruit, Rosemary mint, Jasmine, Pomegranate, Tangerine and Honey and Wintergreen.

Happy New Year! I am finally making the leap to using ORGANIC FLOUR, white flour that it is. I will continue to source my whole grains locally from Four Star Farms, Inc. (who does not use RoundUp on their crops). Just so you know, other organic products I use include sugar, molasses and many of the vegetables I use on my flatbreads (any veggies not organic are from one of our conventional farmers at the Plymouth Farmers’ Market.)
This is going to take some figuring on my part to make it work financially. I am going from spending $18 for 50 fifty pounds of flour to paying around $70 for the same amount. Prices will need to be adjusted along with sizes. I will keep you up to date on all changes as they happen. Thank you for your continued support!
Recipe Idea: Savory Tarts
Pie crusts aren’t just for dessert. Try this: take out a single pie crust and place it on the counter to warm up a bit (make sure the spot isn’t too warm or will just melt). Preheat oven to 400. Prep your favorite veggie-dice and roast some squash with shallots, saute some hearty greens from Plato’s Harvest or Skinny Dip with garlic powder from Web of Life and Omega olive oil. Allow veggies to cool slightly before proceeding. Roll out crust to about a 9 inch circle (or some variation thereof-shape is not important here!) and cover with veggies leaving a one inch margin all around the edge. Sprinkle with your favorite cheese and bake 20-30 minutes. A simple, healthy local supper!
