Saturday July 8th Vendor List
It’s grillin’ time and about the best (easy) thing you can do on a grill is the bacon-cheese burger. No, not the burger with the bacon and cheese on top — the one with the bacon mixed in with the beef and the cheese is stuffed inside. A Jucy Lucy on steroids.
Start at Heather’s custom meat – she has bacon and ground beef. About a 3:1 ratio. Chop the bacon as fine as you can – a food processor works if you don’t have a grinder. And you can do it by hand. Mix it in. This burger also works with sausage instead of bacon.
For each burger make two patties and stuff them with your favorite cheese. Seal them up – you don’t want cheese leaking. Cook about 5 minutes a side. There are some great buns at the market, lettuce, tomatoes and a condiment for every taste. Personally, some jalapeno relish would be great.

Renee Kiff’s Persimmon Cake

Renee Kiff's Persimmon Cake

If you missed the Wednesday market — once again you missed out. Franco’s One World Sausage was grilling samples, Renee Kiff brought persimmon cake and we have the recipe it’s at the end of this post it is great!
Min-Hee Hill Gardens had tastes of their fresh salsa.
Next week the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is a wonderful market — pretty much everything you need but the turkey!
Didn’t you really miss Dungeness crab around the holidays last year. Anello’s had fresh, live crab at the market — and will on Saturday. The crabs are big this year and very tasty. Anello’s will also be here on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

Tierra Farm Polenta Bowl recipe

Sunday is Valentine’s Day this is a wonderful recipe and every ingredient is available at the Wednesday market
Perfect way to start off Valentine’s Day –your sweetie will think you’ve been cooking all day.
Polenta and Egg/veggie bowl
polenta bowl using all the same Tierra Vegetables items, and it couldn’t be simpler!
To make polenta, use a ratio of 4 parts vegetable or chicken stock to 1 part polenta. (Physis Foods another wonderful Wednesday only vendor has stock)
Bring stock to a boil in a large pot, then add polenta and begin to whisk. Continue to whisk together intermittently and thoroughly as polenta thickens, seasoning lightly with salt. After 10-15 minutes, when polenta has reached desired thickness, remove from heat, taste once more for seasoning, and adjust if necessary.
*Note that as your polenta sits and/or cools, it will continue to thicken, even after it’s done cooking.
Top with your favorite vegetables, either roasted or sauteed; you can keep it simple with just olive oil, salt, & pepper, or use some minced garlic for added savory flavor.
Top with an egg the way you like it, and a drizzle of your favorite Tierra Vegetables hot sauce!

Pegi’s Super Bowl Super Supper Short Ribs

BRAISED SHORT RIBS
By Dan Baker taken from Edible Marin & Wine Country Magazine
Dec. 2012


• 2 cups chopped yellow onion
• 1 cup chopped celery
• 1 cup chopped carrot
• 6 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
• 3 sprigs fresh thyme
• 2 bay leaves
• 1 bottle good-quality red wine
• 6 boneless short ribs, each about 2 inches thick and 1 pound (Salmon Creek or John Ford)
• 1/2 cup canola oil
• 8-12 cups veal stock or water, heated to simmer (I used The Bone Broth Chicken Broth)

INSTRUCTIONS
Heat onion, celery, carrot, garlic cloves, thyme, bay leaves and wine in saucepan over high heat. When the mixture comes to a boil, the wine may ignite (this is supposed to happen, to burn off the alcohol). If it does not ignite on its own, carefully ignite with a lighter. Either way, the flames will extinguish themselves when the alcohol has burned off. The goal is to remove the bitterness of the alcohol from the braise, yet retain the flavors of the wine. After the flame has gone out, allow the mixture to cool, then pour over the short ribs that have been placed in a roasting pan. Cover and marinate for 8–24 hours, turning ribs, if necessary, to expose to marinade.
Remove the ribs from the wine and vegetable mixture and pat dry with towels. Strain the vegetables from the wine, reserving both the vegetables and the wine.
Preheat oven to 275°F. Heat canola oil in heavy-bottomed pan until just smoking. Generously season the short ribs on all sides with salt and pepper and place the ribs in the hot pan, being careful not to burn yourself (you may need to do this in 2 batches—do not crowd the ribs). Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook until all sides are golden brown. Remove browned ribs from the pan and place in high-walled roasting pan.
Next, sauté the reserved vegetables in the same pan in which you browned the ribs (in the same oil, adding a bit if necessary) until caramelized. Pour the caramelized vegetables over the ribs, then add the reserved wine and enough warmed veal stock or water to completely cover the ribs. Cover with parchment paper or aluminum foil and place in the preheated oven for approximately 4–5 hours, or until the meat is loose but not falling apart. Using a slotted spoon, remove the ribs from the braising liquid. Strain the vegetables out of the braising liquid, reserving the liquid. Discard the vegetables. Cook the braising liquid over medium-high heat in a saucepan until it has been reduced down to the consistency of a sauce, skimming the surface of fat periodically during this process.
To Serve
Cut the ribs into the desired portion size and place in 400° oven, on lightly oiled sheet pan, for about 10–15 minutes until slightly crisp on the edges and warm inside. Place a portion of ribs on each plate and top with a spoonful of the reduced sauce.
Suggested side dishes: buttered pappardelle pasta, risotto or potato purée work well as a starch; sautéed curly kale or roasted root vegetables are great complements for a winter vegetable.

Tom Noble of Armstrong Valley Farm knows what to eat seasonally. Right now he is making eggplant tian. He didn’t call it a tian but that is what it is. There is nothing better than slow roasted vegetables and most vegetables are improved by roasting.

Tom’s Eggplant Tian

Pyrex or other oven proof dish
olive oil and chopped garlic in the bottom of the pan
*layer slices of eggplant, onion and tomatoes until piled high
above the top of the dish
Hot oven (390) for a couple of hours until it cooks down and the liquid is gone – check half way. Getting too brown on top – cover with foil.
Also just for some lily guilding — at the end you could add bread crumbs or cheese or both

*add or subtract the seasonal vegetables of your choice.

Princess SeaFood at the Saturday Market with just caught black cod and here is a great recipe

Ingredients

3 tablespoons each honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, grated

4 sablefish (black cod) fillets
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 green onions, thinly sliced (white and green parts)
Instructions

Combine first 7 ingredients in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Add sablefish, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes.

Remove fish from dish and reserve marinade. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and lay fish in pan, skin side up. Cook 5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and to desired degree of doneness.

While fish cooks, pour reserved marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook 7 minutes, or until marinade is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Brush fish with glaze and garnish with sliced green onions.

This is also GREAT on the grill. Marinade and BBQ for 7-10 minutes skin down and don’t flip.

Recipe adapted from The Nourish Evolution blog.
