  • 3/4 cup corn kernels (from 1 ear of corn or from frozen)
  • 3/4 cup diced zucchini
  • 1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon table or fine sea salt, divided

  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 large fresh basil leaves, cut into ribbons

Recipe from washingtonpost.com

INSTRUCTIONS

In 10-inch cast-iron or ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil until shimmering. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add corn, zucchini, and 1/4 teaspoon of each salt and pepper, and cook until zucchini is firm-tender, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook until just warmed through, about 1 minute.

Wipe skillet out, then return to medium-high heat. Once pan is hot, add remaining 1 tablespoon of oil, swirling to coat skillet. Pour batter into skillet, then carefully transfer to oven. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until pancake is puffed and golden brown.

Remove skillet from oven, top with vegetable mixture, garnish with basil, and serve.

Fun Facts About … Tomatoes!

Oh, the blackberry!  The Farmers Market’s blackberries will spoil you forever when it comes to Did you know that the tomato was the original inspiration for all the fairy tales about poison apples?  Tomatoes are so acidic that they would leach lead out of the pewter plates used by the ruling classes and cause lead poisoning (the lower classes, who ate on wooden plates, were spared!).  Thankfully, we all evolved past pewter plates!  Can you imagine summer without tomatoes?  Beefsteak, roma, cherry, grape, heirloom, whichever you prefer, you will find them at Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, August 21, from 8 a.m. to noon.  And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pickup!  We’ll see you at the Market!

Spotlight on Blackberries!

Oh, the blackberry!  The Farmers Market’s blackberries will spoil you forever when it comes to blackberries.  Grocery store pints simply cannot compare to a fresh-off-the-vine blackberry from one of our farm vendors.  They are so sweet and bursting with flavor — amazing!  I love them with greek yogurt, granola, and just a dab of honey.  Or you can try them in pies, cobblers, cakes, salads, or even cocktails, or just eat them straight out of the basket they came in!  Kuhn Orchards is having a special — a 12 pint flat of blackberries for $66!  Too many for you?  Find a neighbor and share!  Blackberries are the star of the show at Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, August 7, from 8 a.m. to noon.  And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pickup! We’ll see you at the Market!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Seared Chicken with Apricot Sauce

Seared chicken with apricot sauce

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (about 1 1/4 pounds), trimmed and tenders removed 
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • ¾ cup dry white wine
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 4 fresh apricots, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons apricot preserves
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon , or 1/2 teaspoon dried

INSTRUCTIONS

Place chicken breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound with a rolling pin, meat mallet or heavy skillet until flattened to an even thickness, about 1/2 inch. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in flour, shaking off excess. (Discard any leftover flour.)

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until browned and no longer pink in center, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, cover and keep warm. (If necessary, cook chicken in two batches with an additional 1 tablespoon oil.)

Off the heat, add wine and shallot to pan. Return to medium heat and cook, scraping up any browned bits, until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Add apricots and cook until fruit begins to break down, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in preserves, tarragon and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Return chicken to the pan and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve chicken with sauce.

  • 2 cups spinach, shredded
  • 8 ounces stale whole wheat sourdough bread (7 to 8 thick slices)

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk

Recipe from thekitchn.com

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Prep strata the night before you plan to serve it. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Peel and cut sweet potato into 1/4-inch cubes. Toss with onion, olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread in single layer on baking sheet or roasting pan, and roast until are tender, 18 to 20 minutes.
  2. Place spinach in a large bowl and scoop hot sweet potatoes and onions on top. Stir, letting spinach wilt from the heat of the roasted vegetables. Cube bread and add to bowl, along with 2 ounces of cheese, rosemary, and chives. Toss until well combined
  3. Lightly grease 9×9-inch (or 2 1/2 quart) baking dish. Scoop bread mixture into dish, evenly distributing the spinach and sweet potatoes. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Pour over bread mixture, pressing down to submerge bread completely in egg mixture. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
  4. In the morning, remove strata from refrigerator and preheat oven to 350˚F. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil, sprinkle with remaining 2 ounces of cheese, and continue to bake uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes until strata has puffed and cheese is browning. Serve with an extra sprinkle of chives.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Eggplant Parm Sliders

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 Roma tomatoes – cut in half, stems removed
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • salt and pepper as needed
  • olive oil as needed
  • 1 eggplant – ends removed, cut into equal rounds
  • kosher salt as needed
    (roughly 1/2 tablespoon)
  • 1 c. Italian breadcrumbs

  • fresh basil
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F.

  • Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel and repeat.
  • Melt butter in a small saucepan and add minced garlic. Brush onto each half of buns and toast for 1-2 minutes.
