First Market Of 2021!

By 30 December 2020

Welcome to our 2021 season!

We are happy to return for our first market of 2021 this Saturday, January 2nd. While winter brings a slower pace, shortened days and at times, inclimate weather, we are eager to celebrate this season of quiet with hearty and nourishing warm foods.

Thankfully the market still has fresh produce (including a small amount of broccoli and cauliflower), pasture raised eggs and meat, pantry and dry goods, baked items and distilled beverages to refill your shelves and fridge.

Soups, stews and sheet pan meals (veggies and a protein of choice roasted all together) are perfect for this time of year and making extra allows you to freeze or keep for tasty lunches throughout the week. Cost effective and simple to make, as well!

Boost your soup’s nutrition by adding roasted veggies and hardy greens. Slow roast winter squash or a protein such as chicken or mushrooms for a flavor packed, nutrient rich addition.

Cook a big pot of beans and portion out the extras to store in the freezer. Cooked beans freeze beautifully!

There are lots of ways to stay cozy this season but nothing better than a good meal to warm those around your table.

Eating black eyed peas on New Years Day has long been a Southern tradition to signify luck and prosperity in the new year. They’re commonly served with a hardy green such as collard greens and simmered with a ham hock or bacon. Beans are super easy to make vegetarian – just swap chicken stock for veggie broth and eliminate the meat. Plus, they’re incredibly versatile, healthy and extremely inexpensive. If you don’t want to cook your own beans, just buy some canned ones. Although once you start cooking your own you will be surprised by how easy it is

Check out this how to guide followed by the recipe for Black Eyed Peas from www.delish.com1. Let them soak.

Place your beans in a large bowl and add enough water to cover by at least 4 inches. Let them soak overnight.

2. Let them simmer.

Drain your beans from the soaking liquid and give them a quick rinse under cold water. Place beans in a large pot and cover them with 4 inches of chicken stock. Simmer, covered, for about 1 hour. Start checking after 45 minutes to see of they are tender and add more broth or water as necessary to keep them covered. Add in a ham bone if you have one for even better black eyed peas!

3. Dress them.

Once your black eyed peas are tender you can season them up and add any extras you want. Add some spinach or other greens during the last 5 minutes or so and season with some salt, pepper, and any other favorite seasonings!
