Market News

The Market is back open this morning.

With the forecasted cold weather, temperatures we have not seen in 20 years, please be careful when venturing outside. Due to this cold, Rocky Glade Farm will be taking a break this week. There is still some fresh produce available from Farmer Brown, Frontier Family Farm and White City Produce and Greenhouse.

Meadow Branch Beef has returned with a limited inventory.

Farmer Brown returns this week with lettuce, wheat grass, jellies, baked goods and processed foods.

Nuance Coffee & Tea will have coffees on special. 2 bags for $20. Just choose the “2 coffees for $20” selection and write in which 2 coffees you would like in the comment section. That’s a savings of $2.00. Teas will be on sale as well.

Finally, Maura with Double Star Bar Farm will have a table at pick up on Wednesday evening displaying some of her knitted products just in time for this winter.

Thanks so much for your support of Stones River Market, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. We’ll see you on Wednesday at Southern Stained Glass at 310 West Main Street from 5:00 to 7pm!

Just in time for this winter, I found this recipe on Yummly (www.yummly.com) that I think you will enjoy.

Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oatmeal

Ingredients
3-4 apples, unpeeled and diced into ½ inch pieces (I used gala)
3 cups milk
2 cups water
1 cup apple juice or cider (I used Langer’s Light)
2 cups uncooked steel cut oats
¼ cup maple syrup
2 Tbsp butter, cut into small pieces
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
¼ cup brown sugar, divided
2 tsp cinnamon, divided
any additional desired toppings for oatmeal such as chopped nuts, raisins, craisins, brown sugar, milk, cream, granola, etc.

Instructions
1. Spray the insert of your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray or use a slow cooker liner.
2. Add the diced apple, milk, water, apple juice, oats, maple syrup, butter, salt, vanilla to your slow cooker and stir until well combined. Then mix in 2 Tbsp of the brown sugar along with 1 tsp of the cinnamon.
3. Cook on low for 7-8 hours.
4. In the morning, add the remaining 2 Tbsp brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon and stir the oatmeal. It will thicken more after you give it a stir.
5. Unplug the slow cooker and let sit for 5 minutes. Your oatmeal is now ready to serve. Top with any additional desired toppings. Serves 6-8

Notes
Leftovers can be placed in containers and put in the refrigerator. To reheat, just add a little milk to 1 cup of the oatmeal. Microwave for 30 seconds. Give it a stir and microwave for another 30 seconds or until heated through.

I thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!
