I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for … Asparagus!

There is asparagus to spare at the Farmers Market this week!  So much so that Kuhn Orchards is giving away samples — free mini bunches of asparagus for you to try (while supplies last).  Discounts too!  On asparagus and rhubarb — and there should be strawberries — so it is definitely time to take that strawberry-rhubarb pie recipe out of the drawer!  Yum!  Do some sampling at Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, May 21, 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! 

NEW VENDOR PROFILE

Welcome, Setas Mushrooms, to the Lubber Run Farmers Market!  In January 2020, Setas Mushrooms opened its doors at Falling Waters, West Virginia, with the short-term goal of delivering fresh, dried, jarred, and specialty mushrooms straight to the consumer.  And so they do!  Visit their Market tent for a variety of fresh and dried mushrooms as well as grow kits and mushroom jerky.  While picking up your fungi, ask Setas about their fascinating long-term goal — to reduce the amount of plastic and reliance on resource-constrained material in the world using mycelium as packing material, as building material, and as space material (think satellites).  Wow!

WE HAVE SWAG!!!

Happy Halloween!!

It’s the spooky time of year! One of my favorite pasttimes is scrolling through all the pictures of homemade spooky treats on sites like Pinterest. The creativity amazes me (in the same way that all the candy chutes and innovative pandemic-inspired candy delivery mechanisms in the neighborhood amazes me)! Who knew that apples, peanut butter, and strawberries could make spooky treats? Or that bell peppers could be carved like pumpkins and used to hold veggie dip? Or that you could use a watermelon to make a gaping maw that … dispenses fruit salad! Want to try some of these ideas for your pre- or post-trick or treating nosh? The farmers market will have all the ingredients you need! Prep for Halloween at Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, September 4, between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pickup! We’ll see you at the Market!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Perfect Farmers’ Market Tacos

Farmers Market Tacos

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE RAJAS

  • 4 (about 1 pound total) medium fresh poblano chiles
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
  • 1 large white onion, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, preferably Mexican
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped

FOR THE TACO FILLING

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
  • 4 (about 1 pound total) summer squash, cut into cubes a little smaller than 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 12 squash blossoms, stames and sepals removed and sliced crosswise into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Mexican queso fresco or other fresh cheese such as feta or goat cheese
  • 3/4 cup Mexican crema, crème fraîche or heavy cream
  • Salt
  • 12 warm corn tortillas

Recipe from rickbayless.com

INSTRUCTIONS

Make the rajas: Roast the poblanos on baking sheet 4 inches below very hot broiler, turning regularly until skin is evenly blistered and blackened, about 10 minutes. Be careful not to char flesh—only skin. Cover with kitchen towel and let stand for 5 minutes. Rub off blackened skin, then pull or cut out stems and seed pods. Tear chiles open and quickly rinse to remove stray seeds and most bits of skin. Cut into ¼-inch-wide strips about 2 inches long.

In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high. When hot, add onion and cook, stirring regularly, until richly browned but still a little crunchy, about 7 minutes. Stir in garlic and oregano. After a minute or so, when garlic is fragrant, remove from heat and set aside.

For the taco filling: In 12-inch skillet set over medium-high, heat oil. When really hot, add squash, stirring and turning frequently, until richly browned all over. Add poblano strips, corn, squash blossoms and caramelized onions, then scoop in crema.

When  cream has thickened enough to coat mixture—only a couple of minutes over medium-high heat, but needs to be stirred nearly constantly—taste mixture and season with salt, usually about ½ teaspoon.

When everything comes to a simmer over medium heat, add a couple more tablespoons of crema if needed.  Taste for salt and scoop into warm tortillas. Though not absolutely necessary, mixture is delicious sprinkled withqueso fresco.

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. Transfer vegetables to bowl and cover to keep warm, or refrigerate until needed.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  In medium bowl, whisk together flour, remaining 1/8 teaspoon of salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. In large bowl, whisk together milk and eggs until well combined.  Add flour mixture to egg mixture and whisk to combine, then stir in Parmesan cheese.

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.
