Comment from Manager: Thank you only seems like 2 small words but they are HUGE words with great impact to our great list of Growers that have came to my aide and Ben’s during our time of needs. I can not stress enough the benefits from the Teas, Tonics, Soup, prayers that have strengthen through all of this. As I slowly improve I will continue the Herbs and Salve that have gotten me through some rough evenings.

Especial THANK YOU to Justin and Mari for handling the Market and managing things for us and all others that have helped.

News from our Growers:

JUST ADDED FROM:

Sow’s Ear Piggery: Just in from the Butcher! Pork cutlets, boneless loin roast, Boston butts, Tenderloin, bottom round roasts. USDA, non-GMO, non-corn/soy, free range pork. We will be adding more cuts next week.

Sassy Cassies: has brought all our yummy side dishes back for Easter. And we have a special yeast roll for Easter morning — Carrot Cake. There are carrots in the dough, rolled up around golden raisin that have marinated in pineapple juice, combined with brown sugar and warm spices. A pecan-cream cheese icing completes theses.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: The very early perennial plants are coming to life very nicely. While many of them are not yet in bloom, it’s a very good time to plant them so you will be able to enjoy their whole bloom season. In bloom now is Mukdenia, the odd plant that blooms before its leaves emerge. Also the Jacob’s ladder, a couple of pincushion flowers, and Euphorbia are blooming. More perennials will be sure to burst forth in color next week! The flowering almond is a beautiful small shrub which adds to the early spring display. If you are looking for a houseplant, I have also added several African violets back to the market this week as well. While the yellow and white daffodils have finished their show, the later doubles and multi-flowers should be doing well this week. If you’d like to return your vase and/or packing box, I will be glad to recycle them.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have roasted red pepper hummus, ginger fig shrub concentrate, herbal honey, herbal teas, mustard, dried wild oyster mushrooms, lettuce, Kale and some more winter salad mix.

Barefoot Acres Herbs: This week I will be working on lymphatic cleanse salve and some lotion bars. NOTE from Manager: I doubt I would not be as far as I’ve come if it wasn’t for her Healthy Soup and Salves.

Valentine Family Farm: It feels great being back on the market with one of our most requested pickles. Our delicious Pickled Okra as well as our SPICY Pickled Okra.Pickled Okra are the most beautiful and subtly complex pickles you will ever have. Our pickles include seasonal and locally wild-crafted ingredients including industrial hemp of the Finola variety. We personally grew this hemp as part of the Tennessee Department of Agriculture Pilot program. We carefully place these ingredients in the jar to display their beauty. The combination of these ingredients pickled together creates a flavor that is subtly complex like no other. Our pickles are hand made in small batches and are produced in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We recommend ordering more than one jar. This is because many of our first time customers struggle with purchasing one jar and finishing its contents on the way home. As the seasons change we will update the ingredients. All of the ingredients are edible. Ingredients: Okra, onions, garlic, dill, Sweet Goldenrod (Solidago odora), water, apple cider vinegar, salt, peppercorns(red, green, black), lemon, Staghorn Sumac Fruit (Rhus typhina),red pepper flakes, dill seed, mustrad seed, Peppergrass (Lepidium Virginicum), Industrial Hemp (Cannabis sativa L), Queen Anne’s Lace (Daucus carota), Bushy Beard Lichen (Usnea strigosa)

Flying S Farms: Taking a brief break out of the kitchen this week, our Chicken Eggs remain available.

If you’d like to return your vase and/or packing box, I will be glad to recycle them.

RnR Farm: Along with several of our delicious lettuce varieties we have a special treat this week…Turkey Eggs:
These are pasture-raised turkey eggs. Turkey eggs are almost exactly the same as chicken eggs in texture and taste, but each egg is almost twice as big as the average chicken egg. We have one turkey hen that was pardoned from Thanksgiving last fall, and she has started laying eggs as the weather has warmed. So we are selling these very limited eggs by the half dozen. Turkeys lay much fewer eggs than chickens, and they usually only lay in the Spring. So this is a rare treat indeed. Our turkey hen is fed locally sourced non-GMO feed and resides in a turkey tractor that allows her to constantly forage on fresh pasture. Since most turkeys are processed in the fall and never get to laying age, this may be your only opportunity to get fresh, non-GMO turkey eggs.

Mama D’s Bakery: Hi everyone! We have everything available this week!

Our bath teas and soaks offer soothing relief and relaxation to tired achy bodies. To see our full product line, read our blog, and join our newsletter, please go to http://www.bodysoulteas.com.

May you be blessed body and soul. Pat

Barefoot Acres Herbs: This week I will be working on lymphatic cleanse salve and some lotion bars.

Sassy Cassies: We have some delicious Easter side dishes the next two weeks. We have cornbread casserole, sweet potato casseroles, squash casserole, bacon braised brussels sprouts and more. Our soups will take a hiatus till Fall with exception of our chicken soups. They will remain for awhile, because everyone needs a little chicken soup in their lives, no matter the weather.

Valentine Family Farm: It feels great being back on the market with one of our most requested pickles. Our delicious Pickled Okra as well as our SPICY Pickled Okra.Pickled Okra are the most beautiful and subtly complex pickles you will ever have. Our pickles include seasonal and locally wild-crafted ingredients including industrial hemp of the Finola variety. We personally grew this hemp as part of the Tennessee Department of Agriculture Pilot program. We carefully place these ingredients in the jar to display their beauty. The combination of these ingredients pickled together creates a flavor that is subtly complex like no other. Our pickles are hand made in small batches and are produced in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We recommend ordering more than one jar. This is because many of our first time customers struggle with purchasing one jar and finishing its contents on the way home. As the seasons change we will update the ingredients. All of the ingredients are edible. Ingredients: Okra, onions, garlic, dill, Sweet Goldenrod (Solidago odora), water, apple cider vinegar, salt, peppercorns(red, green, black), lemon, Staghorn Sumac Fruit (Rhus typhina),red pepper flakes, dill seed, mustrad seed, Peppergrass (Lepidium Virginicum), Industrial Hemp (Cannabis sativa L), Queen Anne’s Lace (Daucus carota), Bushy Beard Lichen (Usnea strigosa)

News from our Growers:

Short Mountain Cultures: we are best known for making a wide range of small batch fermented foods and beverages such as sauerkraut, kimchi, coconut Kefir(non-dairy), tempeh (soy & soy free), water kefir and kombucha. SMC also offers a varied selection of organic bulk foods from their shop ranging from beans and grains to dried fruits and raw nuts. Also amongst many locally made/ sourced options are Hatcher Dairy Milks and Alchemy of Sol Soaps.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:
Spring has sprung! Or is it still Christmas? The seasons are on a collision course at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse! This week we have a few pink and a couple of red Christmas cacti (technically Thanksgiving cacti, but no one really calls them that!) blooming again. These are not huge plants, but each one has at least half-a-dozen buds coming on. When given cool growing temperatures of 55-60F and not watered for a month, they will bloom multiple times in a year, but each bloom cycle will be less prolific. These plants will brighten your windowsill or plant area nicely.

And finally, the long-awaited daffodils are opening! If you need some bright yellow cheer on your dining table as badly as I do, grab one of these beauties! The early ones will last another week if the weather is not too warm. Then the later, multi-colored ones will bloom. Get yourself a now-and-later! And if you have a vase left over from last year, I will be glad to take it back.

Mama D’s Bakery: Hi everyone! We have everything available this week! We have Blueberry Muffins, Crusty French Bread, Organic White Wheat Bread, Mocha Muffins, Chocolate Swiss Roll, Cinnamon Rolls, Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls, Blueberry Lemon Yeast Rolls, Banana Bread and Pumpkin Bread(with the option of nuts or not), Bagels(plain, cinnamon-raisin, blueberry, and everything), Donuts(cake and yeast), Cream Cheese Danishes, Pies(chocolate fudge, pecan, chocolate chip pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato), Cookies, Granola and Protein Bars, Yeast Breads, Sourdough Breads, and Fruit Scones.

Only the best cattle for you the consumer. Tender & tasteful is the goal. We enjoy the feedback from you and will continue to provide a time-tested product for your dining experience.

Fungalicious: Have you tried our Mushroom Powders? We have Cajun Seasoned Oyster that is awesome on steaks coated with olive oil before grilling or roasting. Hickory Smoked Oyster is good on just about everything – not overpowering,* Lion Mane Powder* – add to many dishes without having to actually prepare them from fresh. Also have Oyster Powder that can be added as a thickener to soups or sauces, very good on scrambled eggs.

Body & Soul Teas:

Here is some news from our Growers:

C&M Valley Farms
We have a new item in our inventory.
QUAIL EGGS
Have you ever ate a quail egg, you don’t know what you are missing! Delicious in an omelet, egg salad, pudding or over easy.

Quail eggs are small, so three to four of them roughly equate to the serving size of one chicken egg.

For being so small, these eggs are surprisingly rich in nutrients.

One quail egg (9 grams) contains a significant chunk of your daily vitamin B12, selenium, riboflavin, and choline needs, along with some iron — all in a serving that contains only 14 calories.

Selenium and riboflavin are important nutrients that help your body break down the food you eat and transform it into energy. Selenium also helps ensure healthy thyroid function.

Meanwhile, vitamin B12 and iron promote healthy nervous system function and help maintain optimal energy levels through their roles in red blood cell formation).

In addition, choline is vital to helping your body make acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that sends messages from your nervous system to your muscles.

One quail egg contains only 14 calories but is rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals, including selenium, riboflavin, vitamin B12, and choline.

Enjoy our mushrooms with this weeks recipe:
Sautéed Oyster Mushrooms
Converting a mushroom hater into a mushroom enthusiast is easy when you give them a fork full of
perfectly cooked Oyster mushrooms. The main trick is to not to undercook the mushrooms and to make sure you salt them generously. Oyster mushrooms like long and slow heat and taste best when crisped slightly.
You will need:
One large cluster of Oyster mushrooms
1 tbsp butter
2 large garlic cloves minced
1 tbsp dried thyme
1 tsp of salt + more to taste
Fresh ground black pepper
1 or 2 tbsp heavy cream
Step One: Mince garlic. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Roughly chop Oyster mushrooms and add to pan.
Step Two: Sauté until the mushrooms release their liquid (5-10 minutes) then add the garlic, thyme, and salt.
Step Three: Sauté until all of the liquid is cooked off and continue to sauté until mushrooms crisp in the pan. Crisping will take 15-20 minutes.
Step Four: Remove from heat, deglaze pan with heavy cream and season to taste!
You can also amend the recipe by adding 1/2 cup of dry white wine when you add the garlic or by adding 1 Tbs or so of madeira when you deglaze the pan. Rosemary, sage, parsley, or lovage all make fine substitutions or additions to the thyme.
