First of Five

29/09/16 7:32 PM

Old Beach Farmers Market is open every Saturday in October; five more chances to support our local farms and artisans before winter hours begin.

Returning this week are part-timers Beach Biscotti, Edmonds Bison Farm, Fudge Grudge, and Pennacook Peppers. AND our two popular food trucks are on hand:  Hashi (creative bowls of hot goodness) and Chilly Mermaid (fresh gelato).

Look for plentiful select produce and lots of specialty products not available elsewhere., and that community vibe. Come on out. Support the folks who give their all to bring you outstanding products. We need you.

RECIPE

FRENCH TOAST COMPOUND BUTTER

Who doesn’t love the flavor of french toast; it’s complex, sweet notes of sugar and spice make it all taste nice. Those elements are found in my French Toast Compound Butter, which is perfect to top one of the season’s shining stars – sweet potatoes.

Put a big dollop of this butter on top of baked spuds, or on other veggies like acorn squash, butternut squash, carrots and more. It’s also great on french toast, and other breakfast items like pancakes and waffles.

Soften two sticks of butter and place in a large bowl. Add 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. Use an electric mixer to combine all ingredients until smooth. Transfer to an airtight container, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.

Make approximately 1/2 cup.
