Fall is here… along with that comes a change in the produce.  It’s time for all the great fall squashes ~ acorn, butternut, buttercup and spaghetti. Apples are going to be available as well, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious and Mutzu.  It’s broccoli time again, we will have the first picking of the fall crop.  Come early for your supply…they are sure to sell out early.

Don’t forget to place your order for our “Baskets of the Week”, I need all orders by noon Friday.  As the season progresses they just get better and better, this is a picture of last Saturday’s basket.

Kenny still has tomatoes… hopefully more than last week, he ran out way too early! We will also have corn, possibly the last of the season. We’ll have sweet potatoes, green beans, Swiss chard, okra, kale, cabbage, red potatoes, beets, zucchini, golden zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, bell peppers, and candy onions.  Kenny has more of his many different hot peppers, eggplants, and cherry tomatoes as well.

Canning tomatoes will be available again this weekend for $15 a half bushel, let us know if we need to bring some for your canning projects.

Don’t forget to pick up your farm-fresh, free-range eggs at the market. Just a reminder that we have been selling out early each week… so come early or pre-order to make sure you get the items you need.

Thanks for supporting us with your purchases. Have a great week, hope to see you on Saturday.

apple bread with carmel glaze

Try this and delicious apple bread, it’s so easy you can make it most anytime for a quick and tasty dessert. So yummy right from the oven… even without the glaze.

1/3 cup brown sugar (not packed)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2/3 cup white sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened

2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup milk

2 apples, peeled and chopped (I use Mutzu)

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Glaze:

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.

Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside. Beat white sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until incorporated; add vanilla extract.

Combine flour and baking powder together in another bowl; stir into creamed butter mixture. Mix milk into batter until smooth. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Next add half the apples and half the brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.

Pour the remaining batter over apple layer; top with remaining apples and add more brown sugar/cinnamon mixture and pecans. Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using a finger or spoon.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes.

In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat to low. Boil and stir 2 minutes. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling; remove from heat. Cool to lukewarm, about 30 minutes.
Gradually stir powdered sugar into glaze mixture. Place saucepan of glaze in bowl of cold water. Beat with spoon until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. If glaze becomes too stiff, stir in additional milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, or heat over low heat, stirring constantly.

Drizzle glaze over loaves. Wrap tightly and store at room temperature up to 4 days, or refrigerate up to 10 days.

IMG_1434This weekend, Moms and Dads bring the kiddos to the New Albany Farmer’s Market for our Third Annual “Zucchini 500″. Children get to make their own “race car” and enter them in our race. Tons of fun, and Kenny and the other farmers have plenty of  zucchini for all the kids! They has been holding them back for a couple of weeks just for your boy or girl.  Each child gets to chose a zucchini, add wheels and number/name, then join the race. Prizes will be awarded, be sure and spread the word so we can make this the best Saturday for kids this market season.

Here are a few pictures from our past race… come and watch the fun.

8-21-5Please note this Wednesday will be our last WEDNESDAY for the season.  Beginning in September we are Saturdays only, kids are back in school… produce production slows down … and we tucker out about then too.

But for this Wednesday… summer crops are about the same… Kenny’s home grown tomatoes, several heirloom varieties, fresh corn and green beans! We’ll also have new red potatoes, zucchini – golden and green, summer squash, eggplants, green peppers, candy onions, kale and cucumbers. Kenny’s hot peppers are going to be available…jalapeños, banana peppers, pablano and a hot mix variety.

We will have some fruit on Wednesday; peaches and watermelons, they are both delicious!

It’s canning time… we have 1/2 bushels of tomatoes, corn and green beans ready to harvest, if anyone needs some for canning please let us know and we will be glad to bring them to the market for you.

We will have some of our farm fresh eggs available, but they will be on a pre-order only basis on Wednesdays.  It’s just too hot to keep unwanted eggs in the cooler.  Just let me know if you need me to bring some for you and I will be glad to try and accommodate you.

Thanks for supporting us with your purchases at the market and we hope to see you there,
