The drought has had a devastating effect on farms throughout the Midwest. We’re so lucky that farmers this weekend bring us beautiful mounds of vegetables and fruits and wonderful high-quality pastured meats from Stone Barns and Roaming Angus.
Locally, the dry weather shortened our gooseberry season. Instead of gooseberries, Newgate Farms will have lots of raspberries (including those pretty pale yellow/pink ones that look too pretty to eat!).
Fortunately our jam-maker Renee of Renee’s Jams snapped up enough gooseberries up to make jam. Be sure to pick some of her gooseberry jam this week. There’s nothing quite like gooseberry jam on an English muffin.
I’m happy to announce that Betsy Rich of Rich Brownies has come up with several new flavors of gluten-free brownies. My motto is “more is more,” says Rich, the former TV-news-producer-turned-brownie-queen.”Because one of my closest friends has Celiac disease, I wanted to make a gluten-free brownie for her.”
“It was important that my gluten free brownie didn’t taste or feel like it was missing anything,” Rich explained, “so I finally figured out the answer: replace the flour in each batch with another half pound of the imported dark Belgian chocolate I use in all of my brownies. The result is a deep, dense fudgy chocolate brownie. My original “Gluten Free” brownie was a smashing success with people who don’t eat gluten–but what surprised me most is that it has become one of my best sellers with gluten eaters to—because true chocoholics love its deep dense dark chocolate taste and texture. So I changed the name to “Flourless Brownie” and began to create new gluten free varieties.” As of this weekend, she will be selling the following gluten-free variations Flourless Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow, Flourless Chocolate Peanut, Flourless Chocolate Peppermint Pattie and Flourless Chocolate S’mores.
It makes me want to go gluten-free.
Except, of course when I think of all the great pastas that Flour City Pasta has to offer.
Fork and Glass is visiting this weekend…make sure you try some tacos to eat on-the-spot, at the market!
