We Didn’t Blow Away!

12/10/16 3:15 PM

Thanks to all our stalwart vendors and patrons for coming last Saturday. Even with Hurricane Matthew threatening, the market was full and fun. We really appreciate your continuing support.

And we hold in our hearts those whose homes, businesses and farms sustained damage.

This Saturday marks the return of Edmonds Bison Farm, Lavender House, and My Vegan Sweet Tooth, part-time vendors but long-time favorites.

October treats continue! See you Saturday.



with Pumpkin Spice

A delicious seasonal treat is butternut squash, and I love them mashed and served with the complimentary flavor of pumpkin spice. Here’s how to make them:

Make the pumpkin spice by adding 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves in a small bowl and whisking to incorporate. Store in an airtight container.

Make the mashed butternut squash by heating 1 tablespoon unsalted butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add 2 large butternut squash that has been peeled,  seeded and cut into small chunks. Cover and cook for 7-9 minutes, or until slightly tender. Add 1 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice, cover and cook an additional 13-15 minutes, or until squash is very tender and most of the juice has been evaporated. Add 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice, 1 teaspoon course salt and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper.

Serve hot, with several pats of butter on top. Makes about 6 servings.
