Farmers’ Market 08-27-08

Many people are already asking us what happens after the market is over.

First, the current outdoor market will be open through the end of October. We don’t want to leave out the wonderful fall crops, the pumpkins, winter squash, etc. Many people think of watermelons as only a July treat. Even watermelons should be available at the market through October.

From November through March, we will have our winter market in the west end of the Stillwater NewsPress building. If the weather permits, we’re out on the sidewalk. If not, then we’re indoors.

Items at the market this week are apples, Brussels sprouts, cantaloupe, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, garlic, melons, okra, onions, peppers, soybeans, squash, tomatoes, watermelons, fresh herbs, potted herbs, lavender items, goat milk lotions and soaps, bison meat, jellies, Southwest cuisine, soups, breads and more.

Stillwater Farmers’ Market is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Oct. 29 in Strickland Park, 309 N. Main.

This recipe is one of my family’s favorites. It doesn’t take long hours in the kitchen and I’m always looking for a healthy recipe to use ground beef in.

Sassy Zucchini

1 pound lean ground beef or buffalo

1 cup chopped onion

3-4 fresh chopped tomatoes

3/4 cup water

1 1-ounce envelope spaghetti sauce mix

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup raw instant rice

1-1/2 pound zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices

Brown meat with onion in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Remove excess grease. Add tomatoes, water, sauce mix and salt. Bring to boil. Add rice and zucchini. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 15 minutes or until zucchini is tender.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Recipe adapted from Creative Cuisine.
