Harvest and Cooks Notes

  • Dufort Farms

    Bringing along our top quality beef products for you to enjoy at home. We work very long days to operate a cow/calf farm. Our bulls are extremely happy this time of the year, visiting with the ladies. Farmer John spends his days on the tractor mowing, raking, baling, then wrapping feed used to feed-out the cattle, We are keeping an eye on what looks to be a great blueberry season for us, too.

    TRY THIS | Burritos

    Ingredients
    1 -to-1 1/2 # ground beef
    8 oz taco sauce
    1TBS Worcestershire sauce
    2 tsp onion powder
    1 1/2 tsp paprika
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp ground black pepper
    juice of half lemon
    1 small can sliced ripe olives (optional)
    2 cups fresh or frozen corn
    8 flour 10″ tortillas
    4 cups of shredded Mexican cheese blend, or cheese of your choice

    Preparation
    Preheat oven to 400. In a large cast iron skillet, cook beef over medium heat for 10 minutes or until no longer pink. Stir in taco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, onion and garlic powders, paprika and pepper. Add lemon juice, corn and olives. Place 2/3 of a cup of meat mixture near center of tortillas, top with 1/2 cup of cheese. I find the next step easy if tortillas are warm, fold bottom and sides of tortilla over filling and then roll. Wrap each burrito in foil, place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes to heat thru.


  • Plymouth Gluten Free Baked Goods

    Plymouth Gluten Free Baked Goods will be at the Plymouth Farmers’ Market at Plimoth Plantation every Thursday. We are exclusively Gluten Free and offer home-made baked breads, English muffins, slices of blueberry coffee cake and so much more. We look forward to seeing our old friends and making new ones.

  • Jenny’s Bread

    With all the beautiful spinach pouring in, I can’t help but offer a spinach, garlic and feta flatbread for opening day using produce from Plato’s Harvest, Web of Life Farm and Narragansett Creamery.

    I’m waiting to see if the strawberries are in to determine if I will be bringing biscuits for strawberry shortcake ( one of my most favorite foods in the world!). And don’t worry, I’ll have anadama bread too.

    TRY THIS | Grilled Pizza

    Time to fire up the grill! Pick up some of my grilling dough, greens, garlic, Brown Boar sausage, and fresh cheese for pizza night. Keep an eye on my Facebook page for step by step instructions for making grilled pizza.

  • Donde Thiago

    Donde Thiago is a new prepared foods start up that specializes in stuffed arepas — corn-based flatbreads typical of Colombia and Venezuela, filled with rich flavor fusions of local vegetables, meats, and cheeses, juicy fruits such as mango, pineapple, and sweet plantains, spicy tofu, and homemade sauces.

    We strive to use as many local and/or organic products as possible, marrying the tastes of South and North America to add a local touch to this international flatbread. Our arepas are handmade from scratch, fresh for each Market. This is our first Plymouth Farmers’ Market! The menu this Thursday will feature our Spicy Carne, Vegetarian, Mango Guac, and Anana arepas.

  • Omega Olive Oil

    1 tablespoon OOO Garlic Olive Oil
    1 1/2 cups chopped onion
    1 serrano chile, minced
    1 cup ketchup

    3 tablespoons unsulfured molasses
    2 teaspoons chile powder

    Preparation
    In a large saucepan, melt the butter in the garlic olive oil. Add the onion and serrano and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, about 8 minutes. Stir in all of the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook the sauce over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Using a hand held blender, puree until smooth.
