Local Bounty Update

| March 27, 2014

Our vendors anxiously await spring like everyone else. Some have been busy planting cold crops in their hoop houses, others baking up homemade goodies to pass the cold days. Either way, we have lots and lots of homemade/homegrown goodies in store for you today.

Stop by the market between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. if you want to treat your taste buds. Marissa Mullett will be there sampling goods from three of our vendors. First up, coffee from the Pink Elephant Coffee Roasters. She will also have cheese from Wholesome Valley Farm (a goat colby and a cow mozzarella). Lastly, she roasted up some ham steak hash that features pork from her farm.

Lastly, we’re welcoming another new vendor this week, Enrico’s Hot Peanuts. Learn more about Ginny’s business below…

Here we go with this week’s updates:

Enrico’s Hot Peanuts

We are happy to be a new member of the Local Bounty family! Our tasty, spicy nuts originated as an appetizer for a Mexican Dinner 21 years ago. It was such a hit that we began making them regularly for family and friends. Soon stores and taverns in the Toledo area were carrying our peanuts. Life went on, but now the kids are raised and on their own, and Enrico’s has expanded all over Ohio and Michigan. We process our nuts at the Northwest Ohio Cooperative Kitchen in Bowling Green and are an Ohio Proud company. We were recently featured in the Ohio Rural Electric Cooperative’s Country Living Magazine. Check out our Facebook page – Enrico’s Hot Peanuts – or go to our website: http://enricoshotnuts.com/main.sc for more information. Our salted peanuts are infused with fresh garlic, dried red chili peppers and chili powder for a flavorful, spicy but not too hot snack – perfect for those March Madness parties! Please come in and sample a scoop this week. We know you will love Enrico’s Hot Peanuts!

Flying Pig Farm

This week we have fresh granola coming to the store! Blueberry Almond, Strawberry Walnut, Apple Cinnamon, Cranberry Almond and Banana Walnut round out the selection. Next week look for our new line of dried pastas sold in 1 lb (4 serving) packages. We’ll also have nutrient dense sprouts in the cooler (might be ready Friday or Saturday. But, if not definitely by next Thursday)! Sprouts are a very flavorful addition to salads, sandwiches, dips, soups or puree for salad dressings or even baking. No matter how you serve them up, you’ll have a fresh taste of spring!

Keene Creek Farm

We’ve been busy, busy this week. To celebrate the sun shining yesterday, we girls decided to make a batch of dark chocolate sea salt fudge. We hope you enjoy our little salute to spring (now hopefully it really will arrive). Marissa is working at LB today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Swing by and try her roasted ham hash. Make it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s a guaranteed hit any time. Peppered bacon, marinated loin chops, ham loaf…and most of your other favorite pork cuts are stocked. And, if you feel like firing up the grill, be sure to grab some of our fresh bratwursts or mild Italian cased sausage. So, so good.

Windy Hill Berry Farm

By the looks of the snow yesterday, Spring played an April’s Fool’s trick on us. But no matter. Here at Windy Hill Farm we stayed warm inside baking up a batch of Amish Friendship bread. It’s sweet and nutty; made the traditional way with starter given to me by my mother. So cheer up a friend, your child’s teacher, or your sister, mother, aunt, co-worker, or secretary and give them a mini loaf of Amish Friendship bread. They’ll think you and the bread are sweet!

As always, thanks for your continued support of our local food effort.
