It's Still a Farmer's Market at Oryana!
We may be getting close to frosty nights but our produce department is still bursting with local color and taste. Check out what fresh goodies we have from our great farmers:
Pederson’s uses meat from farms that are committed to raising superior meat in a humane and environmentally safe system. This meat contains no antibiotics or growth hormones and is free of nitrites, nitrates, and preservatives. Here is a Fall-inspired recipe featuring Pederson's Little Smokies sausages.
Sausages with Apple and Sauerkraut
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 10 oz. package Pederson's Little Smokies
1 small, local onion, thinly sliced
2 local apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/4 cup local apple cider
1 pound sauerkraut
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon oil. Cook sausages until browned and heated through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate, and cover to keep warm.
Add remaining tablespoon of oil to pan. Add onion, and cook for 3 minutes. Add apples, stir, and cook until softened, 8 minutes. Stir in cider, and cook for 1 minute. Add sauerkraut, and heat until warmed through, about 2 more minutes.
Transfer sauerkraut to a platter and top with the sausages
One more recipe...kale is still coming on strong so here is a quick, easy snack.
Baked Kale Chips
1 bunch kale 1 tablespoon olive oil Sea salt to taste
Preheat oven to 300°F. Rinse and dry kale, then remove the center ribs. Cut into pieces, toss with olive oil and salt in a bowl. Arrange leaves in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until crisp.
