All about Peaches!
Nothing says “summer” like a ripe, drippy-sweet peach! We’ll have some glorious ones this Saturday…shop around and ask for a taste…you decide on the best. Saturday’s we are at 2051, Kaen Rd off Beavercreek Rd…45 vendors this week. With the last few weeks of summer coming up think (if you haven’t already) about preserving some of the wonderful flavors of the season. Many customers have told us that they want to start preserving, well THIS Saturday (and again on September 7th) the OSU Extension Master Food Preservers will be at the Market to inspire and help you start! Freeze, Dry, Can or Pickle the Harvest, save $$, eat healthier!
Saturday’s focus will be on Peaches….from 10.00am on… learn how to make (and CAN) peach salsa , with recipes too! They will also be talking about other ways to preserve the peaches…from straight-up canning in a light sugar syrup..to jam-making and freezing. Bring your questions and pick up great Ball Coupons, a Ball Guide to Canning , free packets of pectin to make freezer jam…and get busy! We’ll also be having a drawing for terrific Ball Canning Equipment…whoo hoo!
Fabulous Melons will be coming from Maryhill Orchards and Leones 3rd Generation Farm who have Yellow , Crimson, Black Diamond and Jubilee Watermelon, Sun Jewel and Tiger Honey Dew, plus Hannah’s Choice and Athena’s Cantaloupe….they make a super-pretty melon salad!
