Would you like to have do-it-yourself local food kits available at your local Potter County Farmers Market? It’s an idea to help the busy cooks by having combinations of local foods that are the main ingredients of some great recipes. What would be in a local food kit?
Well, here’s an example of a local food kit for Garlic Roasted Potatoes. At the farmers market in a ready-to-go package, you get the following main ingredients for about $10:
- 3 pounds fingerling potatoes grown by Wooleylot Farm.
- 5 garlic bulbs grown by Wooleylot Farm
- Sprigs of parsley from one the Potter County farms that grow this herb. Parsley image shown below from Fitzgerald Family Farm.
- A recipe provided by Wooleylot Farm that serves 6 with each serving size of about two cups.
At home you provide some of your own ingredients, like the olive oil and sea salt. And then by following the recipe instructions, you create a wonderful dish using the fresh-locally grown produce.
Let us know what you think. Would this type of kit, help you as a farmer’s market customer? The thought is it would save you time and help you bring some new cooking ideas to the table. If so, we would work with our farmer market growers to come up with a few additional recipes that feature our locally-grown vegetables and products available at the market.
