Indoor winter market hours 2pm to 5pm

Hi everyone~

My apologies for any confusion about last week: I realized that I neglected to correctly date last week's email as February 6.

Tomorrow the market will be open as usual, and if you're planning on preparing your Valentine's dinner at home, Bill and Brian have the best of beef, pork, and poultry, ~ not to mention cheese!,~ for your special evening for your loved ones.  Take a look at our recipe for Oven-Braised Veal Stew with Black Pepper and Cherries below: this deliciously seasoned and spiced stew can also be made with pork shoulder.

This week, Bill Callahan will have freshly cured ham along with freshly smoked sausage.

A reminder:
The Lewisburg Community Garden is co-hosting a Seed Swap on Tuesday, February 25th from 6:30-8:00pm at the Union County Library in Lewisburg. Below is the link to the Facebook page for this event:

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Seasonal Recipe
Oven-Braised Veal or Pork Stew with Black Pepper and Cherries

Adapted from http://www.foodandwine.com
Recipe adapted from Beyond The North Wind by Darra Goldstein
Serves 4

This a rich, deeply flavored wintry stew with a slightly sweet bite from the sour cherries and a lovely layering of warm spices~~~

Ingredients:
2 pounds boneless veal stew meat or pork shoulder, cut into 2-inch pieces
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon canola oil
3/4 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons beef or veal demi-glace
2 cups fresh or undrained thawed frozen pitted sour cherries; or substitute 1/2-3/4 cup dried cherries~just cover with boiling water to plump and use liquid in recipe
2 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 cinnamon stick
1 cardamom pod
1 dried bay leaf
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325°F. Place veal pieces in a bowl; sprinkle all over with pepper and 1 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle with flour, and toss to coat. Melt butter with oil in a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven over high. Working in 2 batches, add veal; cook, stirring occasionally, until browned on all sides, 6 to 7 minutes per batch. Transfer veal to a bowl using a slotted spoon; set aside. Pour off drippings from Dutch oven.

Stir together 3/4 cup boiling water and demi-glace until demi-glace is dissolved. Add demi-glace mixture, cherries, honey, cinnamon, cardamom, and bay leaf to Dutch oven; bring to a boil over high, scraping bottom of pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Uncover; nestle veal in cherry mixture.

Cover and roast in preheated oven until veal is very tender, about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Remove and discard cinnamon, cardamom, and bay leaf. Stir in remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle with parsley, and serve immediately.

Make Ahead
Stew can be made up to 3 days ahead; let cool, then cover and refrigerate. Reheat gently over medium.

Indoor winter market hours 2pm to 5pm

Hi everyone~

A happy midwinter's day to you all!

The SVGM Indoor Market continues every Friday. Winter requires some heartier foods to weather the wet chills and damp cold, and our meats and poultry and handmade raw-milk cheeses can be a delicious part of those soups, stews, and casseroles that feel so good for the winter soul.

The Lewisburg Community Garden is co-hosting a Seed Swap on Tuesday, February 25th from 6:30-8:00pm at the Union County Library in Lewisburg. From Sarah Wochele, the Community Outreach & Education Coordinator for the Lewisburg Community Garden: "It is totally okay to come seedless! It is not an expectation. There are always plenty to go around and those who come empty handed leave with seeds. Also, we are working on getting a small panel of experienced folks to share their "how-tos" of seed saving."  Below is the link to the Facebook page for this event. It sounds like a great one for gardeners and farmers alike:

Indoor winter market hours 2pm to 5pm

Hi everyone~

As I crunched through the remains of Tuesday's magically beautiful snow today, I thought about how sustaining those moments of natural beauty truly are, especially through the cold and dark season of Winter. And as we move out of this cold toward a warmer, wetter (yet still Winter) weekend, I wish for you all those moments of beauty Nature's seasons offer, and the moments to stop, if ever so briefly, and take them in~~~

The SVGM Indoor Market continues every Friday: Bill Callahan and Brian Futhey will both be on hand almost every Friday until next spring. These guys offer up some of the best meats and poultry and cheese you'll find anywhere, locally and conscientiously raised and produced, so keep us in mind when you're making those hearty winter staples~~ soups, stews, chilis, roasts, braises, and grilled cheese sandwiches. They have everything from steaks and ground beef to sausages and ribs.

Stay warm and nourished so you can stay healthy during this winter season~~~ we're here to help with the nourishment every Friday, 2-5pm, inside our sheltered, cozy, convenient space within Brook Park Pet Supply.
