Let’s hit the road!

Off the the farmers market we go, not exactly the best choice for a Sunday, the bulk of the Farmer’s Markets locations are set up  Saturday and during the week.

First stop Slater Park Farmers Market.

Specialty items available, Sacred Cow Granola and the Honey Shop. The vendors  there  offer tasting samples and an abundance of information on their products. Items considered pricey compared to store brands, but a farm to table product, a part of the cost is to support the local craft people and farmers. I couldn’t afford to shop these products often but occasionally it’s worth a purchase to taste and use these products in a recipe. The apple cider vinegar for example, will make an excellent vinaigrette dressing for greens by simply adding olive oil.

Next we’re off to the SEMAP,South eastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership farmers market Stony Creek Farm in Swansea.

Again for a Sunday not a big gathering but a few booths, here on an actual farm site.

Mixed vegetables

imageWhen the local farmers market , backyard garden, or store purchases gives you fresh veggies, there’s only limited time to use them.

Usually, I avoid  refrigeration if possible. Processing can take several forms, one being roasting. Here is a combo of rainbow carrots, peppers , onions, hot peppers, white onion Garlic, etc. salt and pepper, season to taste.

lightly drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle from time to time with chicken stock while roasting at low  heat.

cool, refrigerate and serve as a side dish or any other use.

Boar Osso Buco

Time for another recipe of Osso Buco, very similar to a previous post, osso-buco-or-baked-marrow-bones/.

Boar shanks from PV Farmstand, purchased at the Wintertime Farmers Market.

Ready, a few simple ingredients that are slow cooked.

20140204-193901.jpg

Find a covered oven proof pot that will nestle the shanks.

20140204-193941.jpg

Prepare a mix for breading the shanks, here a combination of flour seasonings and breadcrumbs.

20140204-194004.jpg

A good sized heavy pan for browning the shanks, a combination of olive oil butter in the pan and plain olive oil ready.

20140204-194024.jpg

Coat the shanks with olive oil……

20140204-194054.jpg

Now dredge in the seasoned breadcrumb and flour mixture……….

20140204-194111.jpg
Coat liberally with the mix…..
20140204-194137.jpg

Gently fry the shanks till golden brown…..

20140204-194201.jpg

20140204-194222.jpg

20140204-194252.jpg

Turn on the sides to brown and seal exterior surfaces….

20140204-194347.jpg

20140204-194403.jpg

when browned, return to the cooking vessel….

20140204-194420.jpg

add chopped onion to the oil in the browning pan……

20140204-194444.jpg

Add the sauteed onions to the pot with the shanks…..

20140204-194508.jpg

Add chopped tomatoes and some tomato juiced (canned is OK) to a sauce pot….

20140204-194526.jpg

Heat and add wine…..

20140204-194552.jpg

Add the sauce to the pot…..

20140204-194612.jpg

Add enough liquid to go about 2/3 of the depth of the cooking pot….

20140204-194629.jpg

Fresh aromatics dot the surface…..

20140204-194648.jpg

A layer of parchment paper atop……Cover and Bake low and slow about 325 degrees at least an hour and a half.

20140204-195258.jpg

Later…… DONE…..

20140204-194742.jpg

20140204-194800.jpg

Now the next day, (once cooked, cool and refrigerate at least a day beforehand, it’s worth the scheduling beforehand, once cooked will keep well in fridge), diced veggies and saute….

20140204-194833.jpg

Bake some small  potatoes, fry or broil them slightly to crisp up the skins…. reheat the shanks with the congealed gravy……

20140204-194932.jpg

Plate it up ! On shank per serving…..

20140204-195003.jpg

Serve with a homebrew ! Definitely not a boaring meal !

20140204-195034.jpg

Later on ,serving variation #2, with rice and broccoli and carrots…
