Put Up Summer Bounty
It's that time of year when we get to enjoy the "taste of summer" in recipes we prepare with the vegetables we "put up" in the summer for later use. We are hoping that includes both canned and frozen products in your kitchen. Hamburger Soup is one such recipe - great comfort food for this time of year, and you can use a combination of your own summer stocks and/or canned versions of the same. Even if you didn't "put up" a lot this year, this might give you inspiration to do so this coming season.
We have a busy market this week, with several guest vendors. Here' what's of note
- Anderson Acres Farm will be at market with their beautiful forced tulips both 2/24 and 3/9.
- Why Not Farm, Mockingbird Kitchen and Bar, Lynette's Preserves, Fifth State Distillery and Pebbles Bakery have all confirmed their participation this week.
- Brown Dog Farm will not be with us. Their garlic has started sprouting and planting them now should yield fresh garlic in June.
- Ideal Seafood is tentatively on the schedule depending on staffing.
- Guest artist - Leah Tries Again Pottery
- Guest nonprofit - Community Health Network
For the complete list of vendors, see the participation list below.
Hamburger Soup is our recipe this week. Lots of flexibility to include whatever fresh or canned/frozen vegetables you have on hand - your own, or store bought. You can even substitute beans (cannellini or great Northern) for the hamburger if you want a meatless protein.
We look forward to seeing you this Saturday, 2/24/2024, at the Litchfield Community Center, 421 Bantam Road, Litchfield. Our next market will be in 2 weeks, held on on March 9.
