Ready to order? Cukes & tomatoes and more.

Happy Monday to you all. The market is open for your orders until tomorrow night.

Love tomatoes in January, but do not like to can? Freeze them! Yes, freeze them.
Drop tomatoes into boiling water; leave for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove. Put tomatoes into ice water bath. Remove as soon as possible. Skins will start to fall off. Cut off stems and bruises and remove skins.

Stick your thumb into the tomatoes to remove seeds and excess juice. (This is kind of fun, but you will get squirted) When they are cool, put them in a ziplock bag and freeze. Simple. Pull them out in January and throw into your chili or other dishs.

Want to appear fancy at your next party? Get a fresh bagette, slice in 1/2 inch rounds. Mix cream cheese and dill and a little season salt and garlic powder. Soften in microwave for 10-20 seconds. Spread mixture on bagette rounds. On top of cream cheese mixture, lay rounds of sliced peeled cucumbers. Cover and put in fridge.

Some of you will ask me how much cream cheese; how much garlic powder… I’m sorry, I just don’t know. I start with a brick of cream cheese and start adding things until it tastes right. Grandma would be proud of me.

By the way; I am your new market manager. My name is Merry. I hope to brighten your day with recipes and stories of gardening and family heritage. I live on the little acerage that my grandparents owned in the 1940’s. If this dirt could talk!

Look at all the products our wonderful vendors have for you to order. New items are added often.

See you soon!
