  • Dufort Farms

    Tips for Grilling

    Grass-fed beef is most flavorful when cooked to the proper doneness, not overcooked. One way to determine doneness of a steak is to make a small slit near the bone and check for coloring and a boneless cut, make a slit near the center. (Do not cut all the way through)
    **Always start with a preheated hot grill to lock in juices for tenderness
    Use long handled tongs to turn your steaks, and spatulas for turning burgers.
    DO NOT use a fork for turning your meats, as this will allow flavorful juices to escape.
    MEDIUM RARE – Center is very pink and slightly brown toward the exterior
    MEDIUM – Center is light pink and outer portion is brown
    WELL DONE – Uniform brown color
    REMEMBER to cook meats WELL DONE for children.

  • Engelnook Farm

    Any and all fresh berries mixed with Narragansett Creamery’s thick fresh yogurts

  • Flapdoodle Bags


    I’m going to be busy this week making market bags. All are unique and I have plans for a chicken market bag for Thursday.

  • Jenny’s Bread


    With the strawberries coming in hard and fast and rhubarb still around, perhaps you need a homemade pie crust to make a pie for Father’s Day? Speaking of strawberries there will be more buttermilk biscuits to serve as a base for your strawberry shortcake-makes a great market night dinner! Of course if you’re not a strawberry fan, there’s always double chocolate buns. . .
    As for dinner, you might start with a spinach and feta flat bread made with Plato’s Harvest organic spinach, Narragansett Creamery feta, and Bay End fresh organic garlic. Or buy a pizza dough to experiment with your own creation.

    TIPS

    Pizza doughs that you buy on Thursday will stay good in the refrigerator through the week or can be frozen for up to three weeks.
    Keep missing the chocolate buns? They can be special ordered by the dozen on off market days. Email me at jennysbread@gmail.com for details.”
    Martha’s Local Food Rhubarb, an old fashioned New England, favorite not only makes a great pie. It is also delicious as an addition to braised or roasted meats. Rhubarb makes a lovely iced tea. Simmer rhubarb with your favorite sweetener, stain and serve over ice for a refreshing beverage.

  • Martha’s Local Food

    I will be preparing a cold soup this week with the abundance of rhubarb, greens and garlic scapes that are available. A perfect first course to summer dinner or lunch. To add to your meal, perhaps egg salad made with fresh local eggs, capers and celery.
    For dining, at the market you might select a pulled pork sandwich, Brown Boar Farm pork braised in Simpson Springs Sarsaparilla.
    Hummus and pate are on the menu along with more local food preparations.
    See you at the market.

  • Rein’s Real Rye


    Current varieties available at Thursday’s market: Caraway Rye, RyeBerry Rye, Swedish Rye and Tarragon Rye, as well as Rye Bagels (Caraway and Unseeded).
    Rein’s Real Rye will be at the Plymouth Farmers’ Market on alternating weeks for the 2013 season. Make sure you stock up on enough to last! If you can’t remember which week we’ll be here, sign up for Rein’s eList and he’ll remind you.

    NOTES

    I’m still experimenting with ways to use Tarragon Rye, my recently-created variety (the first one I actually invented!). So far I have two favorites: untoasted with cream cheese AND…

    (slice extra thick so there’s plenty of room for the egg) In A Hole: I purchased a round metal cookie cutter and compressed it to form an oval. That way I can still make a fairly large hole in which to drop an egg into the center of a slice of my bread and not cut through the crust. I slice extra thick so there’s plenty of room for the egg. Also, I plate the cut out hole first and lay the Egg In A Hole on top. That way when I cut through the soft-cooked yoke I don’t lose as much on the plate. Yum!

    What do I like to have with my Egg In A Hole? Glad you asked! I love Brown Boar Farm’s Sausage for a side and, when I’ve got extra bits of rye bread at the end I like to add a little bit of Englenook Farm’s Sweet Heat Pepper Jelly. It just doesn’t get any better than that! (Needless to say, I get my best eggs from the Plymouth Farmers’ Market!)
