Petersen's Market Menu for December 19, 2015

Winter Stir Fry Vegetables, Photo Credit Reed Petersen
I was asked at least 10 times this week what you can find at the Winter Farmers market. This post should answer that question for our customers. For supper tonight I'm making a stir fry with the vegetables in the picture above. You can get all of them at the market this week.

We still have an excellent selection of pumpkins so don't forget the pumpkin pie, here is a link to 15 different Pumpkin Pie Recipes we have developed. From classic to low carb, these are great creative ways to work a little pumpkin into your life.

The carrots and parships are now safely in storage for the winter. November is the best time to pick the best carrots and parsnips of the year. Can you guess why? Frost! You need a few hard frosts to bring out the sweetness of those carrots. The children call our carrots "candy carrots" because of this crunchy sweetness. Here is a link to an article on our web site about why carrots are sweeter with frost?

We will have the following items at the Farmers Market for Saturday, December 19, 2015 (New items are in Bold Print)

Cabbage - Red and Green

Walla Walla Sweet Onions
Brussels Sprouts

Fresh Cut Herbs: Mint, Chocolate Mint, Oregano, Cilantro
Baby Kale- Regular and Red Russian

Full sized Kale - 4 varieities
Herb Plants - Rosemary,

Pickles: Spicy Dill, Sweet Sandwich, Okra, Dilly Bean, Corn Relish, Pepper Relish.

Chipotle Smoked Peppers

Charcoal (home grown, home made). Made three fresh batches in the last week.

If you took the time to read clear to the bottom of Market Menu I'm going to include a thoughtful article from our website archives. This week's "thought for the day" is entitled Beware the Cat With the Deaf Eye. It is a story from when Reed was in second grade.
