Chipotle Honey Barbeque Sauce For ribs, pulled pork, or shredded beef.

 

1 c. honey

1 c. ketchup

½ c. apple cider vinegar

2Tb soy sauce

2 chipotle chilies (roasted Jalapenos in adobo sauce, canned)

2 Tb adobo sauce

2 teasp. chili powder

1 teasp. ground cumin

1 teasp. minced garlic

½ teasp. salt

Place all in a sauce pan, cook for 5-8 minutes, cool and eat! This IS spicy and makes 2 cups; half recipe works well. For less heat, use only the adobo sauce and leave out the chipotle chilies.

Honey! You have all heard about the demise of many bees. Without honey bees, most of our vegetable and fruits would not be pollinized.  We have local vendors who are trying to keep the bees healthy.

Honey is nature’s energy booster. The benefits of honey go beyond its great taste. A great natural source of carbohydrates which provide strength and energy to our bodies, honey is known for its effectiveness in instantly boosting the performance, endurance and reduce muscle fatigue of athletes. Its natural sugars play an important role in preventing fatigue during exercise. The glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy. It is known that honey has also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other types of sugar.

Here is a recipe that uses honey and can be kept on hand for use in salads, on baked goods, and as a snack.

Honeyed Pecans

Yield: 1 cup; hands on time, 10 minutes, total time: 55 minutes

 

Ingredients

1/4 cup honey

1 cup pecan halves

Parchment paper

Cooking spray

1 tablespoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Pinch of ground red pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325°. Microwave honey in a bowl at HIGH 20 seconds. Stir in pecan halves. Coat a parchment paper-lined jelly-roll pan with cooking spray; spread pecans in a single layer on pan. Combine sugar, salt, and a pinch of ground red pepper; sprinkle over pecans. Bake 15 minutes or until toasted, stirring after 8 minutes. Cool completely; break into pieces.

A Very Busy Day at the Market

Atchison Farmers Market

Fresh, Friendly, Local

Market E-Newsletter for Saturday, June 20, 2015

8 a.m. to Noon

The Atchison Farmers’ Market has so much going this weekend!  The first event is a big one:  Tresa Carter and Helen Schnoes, from Douglas County, will be here at the opening of the market to launch Market Match.  This program will enable the Atchison Market to double the tokens we give to a SNAP recipient, when they swipe their card to buy produce.  They can match the amount they receive up to $25 each market day.  We are very excited about this program and how it can help people get more, fresh, local produce.

Shawn Snoddy, of the Atchison Art Association, will have a program for children from 9 a.m. until noon.  They will be doing Marbled Milk Painting.

Then, our very own Janean Bowen will be preparing kohlrabi using both sweet and savory recipes.  You know, this is that strange looking round vegetable with leaves sprouting out of the sides!  Kohlrabi is very delicious and grown by several of our vendors.

Three of our regular vendors will not be at Market this Saturday: Birdsong Farm, Long View Farm, and Providence Hill Farms.  But you will have the opportunity to see them and buy produce from them at their own farms.  They are on the Farm and Garden Tour, which runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday.  You can get tickets at the Chamber of Commerce or Gateway to Kansas.

Lynn Hoffman, our market manager, has registration forms for the July Bundle Give Away. She can also assist you if you need to use your credit, debit, or SNAP card at the market. We also accept Chamber of Commerce gift cards and Kansas Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons. And, of course, you may purchase Atchison Farmers’ Market gift certificates to give as gifts to your family and friends.  This would be a great Father’s Day gift.
