Seattle cookbook author Jeanne Sauvage will be on hand for this week's Farmstand Demo. Jeanne, who lives in Wallingford with her husband and teenaged daughter, is the author of "Gluten-Free Baking for the Holidays" and the forthcoming "Gluten-Free Wish List." For her demo, Jeanne will make a Skillet Pizza featuring her gluten-free pizza dough; her topping will be inspired by what's fresh in the market. Stop by the Demo stand (right next to Market Info Table) around 4 p.m. to chat with Jeanne and get a taste of her fab pizza!
Already flush with stone fruit, Tiny's Organics is back for the season. On tap this week are Chelan cherries and Apriums. For those who need a refresher, the aprium is an apricot-plum hybrid. And if that's still Greek, here's a visual cue, straight from Tiny's Facebook page. Hello, lovelies!
P.S. The aprium is a good source of Vitamin A (in the form of beta carotene - great for vision support!) and Vitamin C to keep that spring cold away.
By nature, stone fruit is highly perishable. If your eyes are bigger than your stomach, consider freezing for later in the season. Remove pits, lay on a cookie tray in a single layer, freeze for 10 minutes, then transfer to a ziploc-style bag. This minimizes the dreaded freezer clumping.
