Seasonal Recipe
Honey-Butter-Grilled Chicken Thighs with Parsley Sauce
Adapted from http://foodandwine.com
Serves 4-6

"These chicken thighs are brushed with honey-horseradish butter while they grill, creating a wonderful glaze. Then they're served with a vibrant garlic-spiked parsley sauce."

Ingredients:
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 small garlic cloves, finely grated
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon finely grated horseradish
2 tablespoon finely chopped parsley, plus 1 cup packed whole parsley leaves
Kosher salt
Pepper
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
12 chicken thighs 

Directions:
In a medium bowl, blend the butter with half of the garlic, 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, the honey, horseradish and chopped parsley. Season generously with salt and pepper.

In a small saucepan of salted boiling water, blanch the whole parsley leaves until bright green, about 1 minute. Drain and cool under running water. In a blender, puree the parsley with 2 tablespoons of water and the remaining garlic and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice until nearly smooth. With the machine on, gradually add the 1/3 cup of oil until incorporated. Season the parsley sauce with salt and pepper.

Light a grill. Brush the chicken thighs with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until charred in spots and just cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Brush the chicken all over with the honey butter and grill, turning and brushing, until glazed, about 2 minutes more. Transfer the chicken to a platter or plates and serve with the parsley sauce.

Make ahead:  The honey butter can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. Bring to room temperature before using.

Hi everybody~


Happy month of May!
It's been quite a year, and this lovely Spring is just what we all have needed. The agricultural season is in full swing, and this week's rain has been so very welcome as our farmers continue to tend their livestock and till and plant and sow.

May is traditionally the onset of the SVGM's outdoor market ~ We had hoped to be able to set up fully outside tomorrow, but with the current forecast, it looks like we may still be inside. 

Bill Callahan is back from vacation and will have freshly dressed chickens and chicken parts; ground beef, beef patties and garlic ring bologna; pork sausage and ham. Nick of Marousi Farm will be back with Spring produce, and Brian will be on hand with his cheeses and grass fed beef and veal.

Seasonal Recipe
Skillet Roasted Pork Chops with Spring Vegetables and Mustard Sauce

Adapted from http://foodnetwork.com
Recipe by Geoffrey Zakarian
Serves 2

It is still the earliest of spring, so use the lightest, freshest vegetables you can find~~ this is a lovely meal for a spring holiday weekend!

Ingredients:
1 cup radishes, cut in half through the stem
1/2 cup shelled English peas
1/2 cup snow peas
2 bone-in pork chops (8 to 10 ounces each), brought to room temperature 
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons ground cumin
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper 
2 tablespoons canola oil 
4 cloves garlic, smashed
3 sprigs fresh tarragon 
5 tablespoons unsalted butter 
1/3 cup finely chopped leeks 
1/2 cup white wine 
1 cup chicken stock 
1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard 
2 tablespoons champagne vinegar 
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill 

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Prepare an ice water bath. In batches by type, blanch the radishes, English peas and snow peas in the boiling water for 1 minute per batch. Transfer each batch to the ice water to stop the cooking process, then transfer to a colander to drain. Cut the snow peas into julienne strips. Transfer the blanched vegetables to a bowl and set aside.

Heat a cast-iron pan over medium-high heat. Season the pork chops with the coriander, cumin and some salt and pepper.
Add the oil to the pan and heat until smoking. Add the pork chops, reduce the heat to medium and cook until caramelized on one side, about 3 minutes. Flip the chops and cook until caramelized on the other side, another 3 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low and add the garlic, tarragon and 3 tablespoons of the butter. Cook, basting the pork with the butter (be careful not to burn the butter, though it will brown lightly), until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees F for medium, about 4 minutes. Transfer the chops to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while you make the sauce and finish the vegetables.

Drain off half of the butter, add the leeks and saute until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the white wine and cook, scraping up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in the chicken stock and mustard and cook for a few minutes until slightly reduced.

Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter to form a pan sauce and season with the champagne vinegar. Add the reserved vegetables to warm in the sauce while it simmers to reduce, about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper as necessary.

Serve the vegetables and sauce with the pork and garnish with dill.
