Petersen's Market Menu for October 10, 2015

Pie pumpkins are one of the staples of fall. We have several heirloom pumpkin varieties. Look for the standard New England Pie and the less common Winter Luxury Pie (with the netted outer shell). Both are great pie pumpkins. I think the Winter Luxury are a little sweeter.

Here is a link to 15 different recipes  we have developed for pumpkin pie. From classic to low carb, these are great creative ways to work a little pumpkin into your life.
A Classic Recipe for Pumpkin Pie, Reed's Favorite
Fall greens are so amazing: wild arugula, regular arugula, baby spinach, lettuce, baby beet greens, cress, baby kale, red russian kale, cilantro. All are at the perfect baby baby size. 

We picked 40 pints of cherry tomatoes this week. Try our black cherries. No sprays, no chemicals, just pure goodness.

We picked 5 baskets of tomatoes Friday. These are great for canning, salsas and sauces. We have lots of slicing tomatoes and heirloom tomatoes for canning. They are winding down, so get them while we still have a good selection.

Hot, hot, hot...Reed picked a bushel of habernaro and poblano peppers this week.

Andrea dried some mints and herbs and is making some Vegetable Freak... Freaky Tea. Sweetened with fresh stevia.
  • Andrea's Tropical Tea - Orange Mint, Pinneaple Mint and Stevia
  • Jenna's Sweet Chocolate Tea - Chocolate Mint & Stevia
  • Lisa's Orange Blossom Tea - Orange Mint, Spearmint & Stevia
  • Just Mint - A Blend of Spearmint & Stevia
