RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potato

INGREDIENTS/EQUIPMENT

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • ▢4 strips of bacon, chopped
  • ▢3 green onions, chopped
  • ▢3-4 tablespoons basil pesto
  • ▢dash of everything bagel seasoning
  • ▢salt and pepper, to taste
  • Pesto
  • 3 cups basil leaves
  • ▢2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • ▢2 garlic cloves
  • ▢2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ▢2/3 cup olive oil
  • ▢salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Peirce potatoes all over with a fork to puncture the skin. Microwave sweet potatoes for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. You can alternately bake sweet potatoes for 45-50 minutes at 425°F.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until nicely browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Chop into small bits and set aside (bacon should be crispy).
  4. Once potatoes can be easily pierced through with a fork with no resistance, slice into equal halves lengthwise. Transfer halves to a baking sheet. Using a fork, mash each potato until the flesh is soft and tender. Season each potato with a pinch of salt and pepper. Do not remove the filling from skins. Form a trench in each potato half and crack an egg into the center. It’s OK if some egg white spills over the edge. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until egg whites are no longer clear.
  5. Remove potatoes from the oven and top each with a sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning, chopped bacon, green onion, and dollops of pesto. Serve immediately.
  6. For the pesto
  7. Combine all pesto ingredients except for the olive oil in a food processor or blender. Blend until mixed and smooth. With the motor running, add olive oil in a slow stream until combined. Pesto should not be too soupy or fine. Set aside. Can be made a day in advance. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a standard blender or single-serve blender instead. Just don’t blend too aggressively or it will turn into a creamy paste. Repeatedly pulse until smooth and granular. Add more oil if too thick.
  8. I highly encourage you to make this recipe with fresh basil pesto. It’s easy to make, freezes well, and is so much more fresh and flavorful than anything you can buy in the store.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Strawberry-Rhubarb Cornmeal Skillet Cake

INGREDIENTS

Rosemary Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

3 (5-inch) rosemary sprigs

1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Strawberry-Rhubarb Cake

1 cup all-purpose flour (about 4 1/4 ounces), sifted

½ cup fine yellow cornmeal (about 2 7/8 ounces)

½ teaspoon kosher salt

¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (6 1/2 ouncse), at room temperature, divided

1 ½ cups granulated sugar

3 large eggs, at room temperature

1 ½ ounce goat cheese (about 3 tablespoon), at room temperature

⅓ cup buttermilk, at room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste

1 cup halved fresh strawberries

¾ cup diagonally sliced fresh rhubarb (1/2-inch pieces) (from about 3 ounce rhubarb stalks)

2 tablespoons turbinado sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Make the rosemary whipped cream
  2. Combine heavy cream and vanilla bean paste in a small bowl. Rub rosemary sprigs between hands to release their oils, and add to bowl; stir mixture until combined. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 4 hours. Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a large bowl; discard solids. Beat cream mixture with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar; beat on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 45 seconds. Cover rosemary whipped cream with plastic wrap; refrigerate until ready to use, up to 12 hours.
  3. Make the strawberry-rhubarb cake
  4. Place a 10-inch cast-iron skillet in oven, and preheat oven to 350°F. Let skillet preheat about 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, whisk together flour, cornmeal, and salt in a small bowl until combined; set aside. Place 3/4 cup butter in bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment; beat on high speed, stopping occasionally to scrape down sides of bowl, until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating on high speed and stopping occasionally to scrape down sides of bowl, until mixture is light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. With mixer running on low speed, crumble in goat cheese; beat until just combined, about 30 seconds. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until just combined, about 1 minute. Add buttermilk and vanilla bean paste, beating until just combined, about 1 minute.
  6. Carefully remove hot skillet from oven, and add remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Swirl skillet until butter is melted. Carefully pour in cake batter; smooth top if needed. Arrange strawberries and rhubarb in an even layer on batter; sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  7. Bake in preheated oven until a wooden pick inserted into center of cake comes out clean, 55 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool slightly on a wire rack, about 15 minutes. Serve cake warm with a dollop of rosemary whipped cream.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Strawberry Shortcake

INGREDIENTS

  • 6–7 cups quartered strawberries
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons (75g) granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (240ml) heavy cream
  • 2 and 3/4 cups (345g) all-purpose flour, plus extra for hands and work surface*
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons aluminum free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I recommend fine sea salt)
  • 3/4 cup (180g) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup (240ml) cold buttermilk*
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) heavy cream or buttermilk
  • coarse sugar, for sprinkling

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Start with the strawberries: Stir the strawberries and 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar together in a large bowl. Cover and set in the refrigerator until ready to use. This time allows the strawberries to release their delicious juices.
  2. Make the biscuits: Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). Mix the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl or in a large food processor. Whisk or pulse until combined. Add the cubed butter and cut into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter or by pulsing several times in the processor. Pulse until coarse crumbs form. If you used a food processor, pour the mixture into a large bowl.
  3. Pour buttermilk on top. Fold everything together with a large spoon or rubber spatula until it begins to come together. Do not overwork the dough. The dough will be shaggy and crumbly with some wet spots. Pour the dough and any dough crumbles onto a floured work surface and gently bring together with generously floured hands. Have extra flour nearby and use it often to flour your hands and work surface in this step. Using floured hands or a floured rolling pin, flatten into a 3/4 inch thick rectangle as best you can. Fold one side into the center, then the other side. Turn the dough horizontally. Gently flatten into a 3/4 inch thick rectangle again. Repeat the folding again. Turn the dough horizontally one more time. Gently flatten into a 3/4 inch thick rectangle. Repeat the folding one last time. Flatten into the final 3/4 inch thick rectangle.
  4. Cut into 2.75 or 3-inch circles with a biscuit cutter. (Tip: Do not twist the biscuit cutter when pressing down into the dough.) Re-roll/flatten any scraps and cut more circles until you have around 10-12 biscuits.
  5. Arrange in a 10-inch cast iron skillet (see note) or close together on a parchment paper or silicone baking mat lined baking sheet. Make sure the biscuits are touching.
  6. Brush the tops with 2 Tablespoons heavy cream or buttermilk and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown on top. Remove from the oven, then cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before assembling.
  7. Make the whipped cream: Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream, 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar, and vanilla on medium-high speed until soft-medium peaks form, about 3 minutes.
  8. Slice the biscuits in half and layer with strawberries and whipped cream. Serve immediately.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Vegetarian Chili with Winter Vegetables

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 (14-oz cans) pinto beans
  • 2tablespoons grapeseed, sunflower or canola oil
  • 1onion, finely chopped
  • 1large or 2 medium carrots, cut in small dice
  • 1red pepper, diced (optional)
  • 2large garlic cloves, minced
  • 3tablespoons mild ground chili (or use hot, or use more)
  • 1tablespoon lightly toasted cumin seeds, ground
  • 128-ounce can chopped tomatoes
  • 1teaspoon dried oregano, preferably Mexican oregano
  • 2tablespoons tomato paste dissolved in 1 cup water
  • 2cups diced winter squash (about ¾ pound)
  • Salt to taste
  • ½cup chopped cilantro
  • Grated cheddar or Monterey Jack, or crumbled queso fresco for garnish (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat the beans on top of the stove in a large soup pot or Dutch oven. Heat the oil over medium heat in a heavy nonstick skillet and add the onion, carrot and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are tender and beginning to color, about 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic, stir together until fragrant, 30 seconds to a minute, and add the ground chili and cumin. Cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes, until the mixture begins to stick to the pan. Add the tomatoes and oregano, and salt to taste. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until the tomatoes have cooked down and the mixture is beginning to stick to the pan, about 10 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste dissolved in water and bring back to a simmer. Season with salt to taste and simmer, stirring often, for 10 minutes, until the mixture is thick and fragrant.
  2. Stir the tomato mixture into the beans. Add the winter squash and bring to a simmer. Simmer, stirring often, for 30 to 45 minutes. It is important to stir often so that the chili doesn’t settle and stick to the bottom of the pot. It should be thick; if you desire you can thin out with water. Taste and adjust salt.
  3. Shortly before serving stir in the cilantro and simmer for 5 minutes. Spoon into bowls. If you wish, top with grated cheddar, Monterey jack, or crumbled queso fresco.

Tip: Advance preparation: The simmered beans can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and the chili will keep for 3 or 4 days in the refrigerator. You will probably want to thin it out with water is it will continue to thicken. It freezes well.

Hurricane Ian Impacts! 

Well, the weather conditions for Saturday do not look so great (but thankfully, nowhere near what passed through Florida or South Carolina).  We’re thinking of those who were (or will be) in Ian’s path. 

Meanwhile, the Market plans to be open Saturday, but will have a VERY limited vendor set-up.  So, if you can, dodge some raindrops and come show support for those vendors that are able to be there to serve you, rain or shine.  AFAC will not be collecting from the market this Saturday. Westover will be operating Sunday in case you miss tomorrow’s vendors.

We will have: Twin Springs, Hog Haven, Great Valley and Kuhn’s Orchard at the market today!

Pease follow our social media, FacebookTwitter, or Instagram, or check our website, for last-minute updates; vendor and patron safety is always paramount!  For now, we plan to be at Barrett Elementary School, on Saturday, October 1, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pick-up!  We’ll see you at the Market!! 

WE HAVE SWAG!!!

Saturday is the last market day of 2021!  And to mark the end of the farmers market season and the beginning of the holidays, we have the Arlington Art Truck on hand with a perfect project as we approach Thanksgiving week!  Arlington printmaker Justyne Fischer selected five prominent women educators and activists of varying backgrounds that reflect Arlington’s diversity — Hazel Mahler, Dorothy Hamm, Dr. Evelyn Reid Syphax, Dr. Phoebe Hall Knipling, and Dr. Emma Violand-Sánchez — to create postcards.  Use the postcards to write a note to a teacher, mentor, parent, student or community member, or anyone to whom you want to express gratitude this season! 

And while we’re talking gratitude, thank you to our wonderful vendors, market managers, market committee members, our fantastic market volunteers, and, of course, our fabulous patrons, for a great and successful market season! Swing by Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, November 20, between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pick-up!  We’ll see you at the Market!

Only Two Market Days Left!

We’re fast coming up to the end of the Lubber Run market season, with only two market days left in 2021.  But, don’t fret, we’ll be back in April 2022 and, in the meantime, those wishing to continue enjoyment of seasonal local fruits, vegetables, and other produced foods are encouraged to shop at the Westover Farmers Market.  That year-round market on Sunday mornings is located in front of the Westover Library at 1644 N. McKinley Road in Arlington.  Its hours December through April are 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.  Many Lubber Run vendors also sell at Westover either part or all of the winter season, so you can still find your favorites:

Barajas Produce● Cold Country Salmon ● Dimitri Olive Farms ● Faerie Springs Farm ● For the Love of Goodies ● Great Valley Farms ● Harmony Hill Farm ● Hog Haven Farm ● King Mushrooms ● Linda Vista Farm ● Ozfeka Catering ● The Fermented Pig● Twin Springs Fruit Farm

Both markets are operated by Field to Table, Inc., an Arlington non-profit.  Please continue to support our local farmers in the mid-Atlantic region and other regional food producers and keep putting healthy food on your tables throughout the winter!  But, first, come see us in our waning days!  Visit Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, November 13, between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pick-up!  We’ll see you at the Market!

  • Face coverings are recommended for all persons in the market.
  • Please don’t come to the market if you are unwell or at high-risk.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly as soon as you return home.
  • If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to ask one of the market managers.
