Great ingredients make even a simple dish something special.   The market’s weekly specials focus on cost and ease of preparation.  This week’s granola parfait: jam , yogurt and granola is so easy  that almost anyone can make it.  It’s elevated in something special using jam from Waterhorse Ridge  less sugar so the flavors shine through, Bellwether Farms is have a special on sheep’s milk yogurt at least stop by and try it.    You will be very surprised at the wonderful almost nutty flavor.

Meal Deal for Saturday February 1
Yogurt, granola and jam parfaits

Perfect for breakfast, lunch or an on-the-go snack…even dessert
Our weekly special promotion comes with a recipe and discounts on the ingredients which are all at the market

Each recipes serves at least four, all ingredients are available at the market, and the cost is $20 or less

It’s easy peasy; Recipe (per person)
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 cup granola
2 tbs. jam

Participating vendors are:
  Not Yer Momma’s Granola
Ingredients for the original flavor  organic oats, honey, almonds, non-GMO expeller canola oil, sunflower seeds, Thompson raisins (organic sunflower oil), dried cranberries (evaporated cane juice & sunflower oil), organic pumpkin seeds, walnuts.

This powerhouse granola has more than 3 pounds of nuts, fruit and seeds to every 5 pounds of oats. Whether you are running errands or running a race, this fuel will keep you going or give you a second wind – works equally well for breakfast or for bringing along as a trail mix. (shhhhhhh….also great on vanilla ice cream)

Bellwether Farms uses milk from a Northern European breed called East Friesian, one of the best milk-producing sheep in the world. The sheep are fed alfalfa and grain and are free to roam year-round in pasture, helping them produce calcium-rich milk high in vitamin B12. Plus, the yogurt contains active cultures that ease digestion; sensitive stomachs can handle sheep’s milk better than milk from cows. Flavors include Plain, Strawberry (made with fragrant Northwestern strawberries), Vanilla (a blend of Madagascar Bourbon and Indonesian beans), Blackberry and Blueberry.—Nicole Denis

Waterhorse Ridge Jams
From Biteclub
Using pectin and small amounts of organic sugar, the Greers make the 60 or so varieties of jams, preserves, chutneys and salsas the old-fashioned way. With a big pot and lots of produce. “Since I grow the fruit I get attached to it and I want people to actually taste it,” she says. The idea, in fact, is to just eat it with a spoon straight out of the jar. Which is not just a suggestion, but a bit of a hazard. We blew through two jars in a single night.

16 oz Bellweather plain OR vanilla yogurt $4
Not Yer Mama’s Original Granola 7
4 oz.Waterhorse Triple Berry Jam 4

Total $15

A fresh-cut piece has a rich dairy aroma, merging the fragrance of warm cultured butter and sour cream.
