Tired of turkey yet? We tried a buttermilk brine for our bird for the first time this year, spatchcocked it and popped it in our smoker and I do believe it was our most moist and flavorful bird yet. Still, after turkey fajitas, turkey sandwiches and last night's turkey soba noodle soup....I am ready for FISH.
This David Tanis recipe for cod and mussel stew with harissa caught my eye because I'm always on the lookout for one-pot dishes, and especially ones featuring seafood. I like that this recipe has you make your own harissa with freshly ground cumin and caraway seeds for more depth of flavor. As luck would have it, we just replenished all of our spice jars with spices and seeds we bought in bulk and spent part of the weekend printing up labels for them.
Ah, yes, things you do for fun during a pandemic.
We are so happy to be able to extend our season out and that most of our vendors are able to stay with us through December.
Our orchards Caradonna and Wright's Farms will stay the same but we are shaking it up a little in the produce department as some of our produce vendors do not have greenhouses or are unable to staff winter markets.
We are so happy to welcome Orchard Hill Organics a small farm based in Katonah that began in 1994 "as a labor of love." The Rowe family first planted an orchard and vegetable garden "as a source of nutritious, delicious produce to nourish family & friends."
Soon, the crops were so abundant, the Rowe family wanted to share their bounty with others, and Orchard Hill Organics was born. For the For past 3 generations, the Rowe family has lived, worked, and tilled the soil in Northern Westchester, propelled by a love of the land and a passionate commitment to wellness. Please give the farm and Jeff Rowe a warm Chappaqua welcome.
Four E Green Farms, specializing in Asian greens will also be here for the next three weeks. Their greenhouses on Long Island are a sight to see.
And, Growing Heart Farm is bringing their beloved greens.
You may be tired of turkey but who gets tired of pie?
Noble Pie is bringing back their popular Black Dirt Chocolate Cream pie, so named for the black dirt farming region that borders their pie shop.
And, the good news is that both Noble Pies and Nutmeg Bakery, usually rotating vendors, will be here for all three December markets. Ditto for 123 Dough! (in addition to our weekly bread vendors Bien Cuit Bakery and Wave Hill Breads).
The Misshapened Bowl will be here all month to help with your holiday shopping list. And, Springbrook Hollow Farm Distillery will make sure your home bar is properly stocked.
Poetry's Purpose Let their volunteers write a poem for someone you love in exchange for a small donation, and they will pass that donation along to the Mt. Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry. Wouldn't a personalized poem make a great stocking stuffer or Hanukkah gift?
Please note that the December markets open at 9 a.m., not 8:30. We close at 1 p.m.
See you at the market!
