Thoughts on Variety


Dawson Local Harvest for March 30th

Thoughts on Variety

HI EVERYBODY!

I think it’s safe to say we all love to eat, we want to eat healthy, and we want greater variety. So here’s a couple of thoughts.

One of my guilty pleasures is smoked sausage with a spicy mustard and a tasty addition that changes the whole meal is one of CULTURED TRADITIONS Sauerkrauts. There are several varieties, all guaranteed to lend an interesting twist on the “standard” German flavors. I suggest their Traditional Russian White, the Ginger Tumeric Sauerkraut or the intriguing Spicy Garlic Ginger Sauerkraut. Maybe you’ll find a new favorite, or maybe a couple of different tastes based on what you’re eating.

Interesting Tip from Bruce the Baker: Here’s a great way to top off MY DAILY BREAD’s Plain Bagels, with some organic cream cheese and DAILY BREAD’s Blackberry Jam! It’s a real taste treat!

And looking for variety in Veggies? Substitute Swiss Chard for Spinach in salads, sauteed, in soups or as creamed chard instead of creamed spinach. Chard is very nutritious, higher in vitamin C, and quite colorful in salads. Give it a try!

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

Spring Into The Harvest!


Dawson Local Harvest for March 23rd

Spring Into The Harvest

HI EVERYBODY!

Yes, it’s Springtime, almost, and lots of things are going on as we Spring Into The Harvest. First of all I want to mention some of the great pasture-fed Beef available now from COPPERHEAD HOMESTEAD, including Ribeyes, Cube Steak, and more. Other choices which are presently unavailable will be back shortly.

Also, in the next week or so we should see Lamb back in the Listings, and MY DAILY BREAD has a couple of exciting new offerings including Ciabatta and ‘Everything’ Bagels coming by the end of the month.

And don’t forget LEILANI’S has cool-weather Vegetables with Gourmet Lettuce Mix, 3 Kales including my favorite, colorful Scarlet Kale, Collards, Spinach, Swiss Chard, and delicious Purple-Top Turnips (yum!).

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

Don't Miss Out on This


Dawson Local Harvest for March 16th

Don’t Miss Out on This

HI EVERYONE!

Want to mention a couple of items you might otherwise overlook in The Market. If you’re at all concerned with chemicals and additives in your Bath & Beauty, look at HANALEI BATH. All products are made using safe, natural ingredients like Coconut oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax, vitamin E, and Eucalyptus, always chemical-free. Bath Salts, Shea Butters, Essential Oils, natural Soaps, Lip Balm, Bug Repellent, and much more with only healthy and nourishing components.

And if you have problems with allergies you might consider local Honey. The Market features Bradley’s Wildflower Honey with hives just a few miles from Dawsonville. Their bees ingest local allergens so (in theory) you can develop resistance to the pollens you’re most likely to encounter. Many think that our bodies also metabolize honey better that processed sugars, plus it just tastes great! Look for it in (where else?), the Honey listing of The Market.

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

Soup's On!


Dawson Local Harvest for March 2nd

Soup’s On!

HI EVERYBODY!

I think most everyone who’s a member of The Harvest likes to cook. I know I do, at least a little, and it certainly doesn’t hurt to have some amazing Vegetables to help things along. So I like to include the occasional recipe to take advantage of what’s available. This time it’s Turnip, Leek, and Potato Soup!

Start with a little olive oil on medium and add a small diced onion and 3-4 of LEILANI’S delicious Leeks chopped. Saute’ until tender; add 1-2 cloves garlic minced and saute’ a minute. Now add an order of LEILANI’S Purple-topped Turnips and 2 medium potatoes, both peeled and diced. Now add 32 oz. chicken stock, vegetable stock, or water, bring to a boil then cover & simmer 45 min.

Almost done! Blend in a blender so it’s creamy. Add salt, fresh ground pepper, and a little thyme and parsley. If you like your soups a little creamier add a little half-&-half or cream. And for those of you who really want to cheat, use potato soup as a base (quicker and less fuss).

There are always lots of ways to “flavor-up” your meals, whether it’s fresh Vegetables for dinner, a refreshing Jun or tasty Kraut for a Saturday-night change-up, superb free-range Ground Beef for Killer Chili, and that’s just a few ideas. Get Creative and see what you can come up with.

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

New Additions to This Week's Dawson harvest


Dawson Local Harvest for February 23rd

New Additions to This Week’s Dawson Harvest

HI EVERYONE

Here’s a quick Update on what’s New this week. MY DAILY BREAD has added Blushing Peach Jam to their line of Jellies and Jams. This is a tasty blend of peaches and strawberries that’s quite nice on toast or with peanut butter. Meanwhile, LEILANI’S has added a new Vegetable to their cool-weather Produce line, the Purple-topped Root Turnip, a beautiful cooking Turnip with (what else?) a lavender-purple top half. It’s extremely nutritious, can be boiled. steamed, baked, and sliced for soups and salads. Next up, Leeks with their garlic-oniony flavor they’re fabulous for soups and stir-frys. Also back is the unusual purple-sheaf Green Onions, like a green onion with great color.

There’s really a lot available in the listings for This Week’s Market. If you take a good look around at some of the more unusual offerings you can find some wonderful gems. Take a chance and try something new!

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!
