Dec 1 – Preserving Fall Favorites

NEW: Out with November and in with December… a reminder that the end of the harvest season is near, but don’t despair! Now is a great time to stock-up on your fall favorites and preserve them for the winter. Explore the basics with Canning 101 and Freezing 101.

My personal favorite – canning applesauce! Take advantage of Quaker Valley Orchards’ and Reid Orchard’s multitude by mix-matching apple varieties to create a winning blend. A pinch of sugar and a dash of cinnamon and you’re set for the cold months ahead!

But one thing you can’t “can-away” are tasty treats from V Picnic Club, so be sure to swing by for a bite and to say hello before they hibernate for the season. Jill is cooking up some warm and satisfying dishes for their last day, so don’t miss out!

Events:

  • Mt P Market Buskers: Feel like busking? Come on down! Alex Platt & Friends will be playing their mandolin, guitar, and bass during the later-half of Saturday’s market. Who knows, they may even break out a fiddle and banjo!

Nov 17 – Thanksgiving Shopping

Celery

Some kind of braising green for a side
NO SUCH THING as too many vegetable sides!

Nov 3 – Spinach

Calaveras by Latina artist Saide Garcia

New: Plenty of water and wind, a hi-tunnel mangled, a door unscrewed itself, a few carrot tops broken off, but nothing worthy of the name Hurricane – honestly the thunderstorms of the summer caused more flooding and the hail more damage. Comfort food of the week: spinach and eggs. Saute and generous pan full of spinach, then scoop out a well to crack an egg into and sorta fry/poach it. Add Parmesan or feta cheese and serve over leftover rice, on a slice of toast, an English muffin, or with hash brown potatoes. Worried about the bio-availability of calcium in spinach? Yes, the oxalates interfere with calcium uptake, but cooking spinach breaks a lot of those down (you know that kinda harsh mouthfeel spinach sometimes has? that’s the oxalic acid binding calcium in your saliva). Events:

  • Mt P Market Buskers: Cosita Seria is back for a little set before the Día de los Muertes festivities on Saturday. Altars and traditional arts from 12-5 at The Festival Center, 1640 Columbia Rd NW – bring a photograph of a loved one to honor and remember. Then from 6-8, a Noche de Ofrendas with bands in Lamont Park!
  • Farmers’ Market Bike Clinic: Neighbors with skills gather on the bandstand to help each other out with their bikes. Ask for an Rx for 10% off all your bike needs at Old School Hardware across the street – they’re stocked up on all the essentials like inner tubes, pumps, tools, lights, and more!

Local Foods:

V Picnic Club: Jill’s serving up lovely little Pancakes with Cinnamon Apple Topping, a Cream of Broccoli Soup to take home, yummm, and Cider Punch.

Daikon, Black Nero Tondo and Watermelon radishes. Japanese Tokyo salad turnips. Big scarlet turnips and purple top turnips. Clean, bagged spinach, braising greens mix, red and green bok choi, broccoli rabe, butterhead and red leaf lettuce heads, wrinkly, tender Chinese cabbage, regular cabbage, mizuna and mustard greens, Toscano, Winter Bor, Dwarf Siberian kale, Swiss chard, arugula.
