VIDEO: Make Rainbow Cauliflower Salad with Leah Shenot of Shenot Farm & Market

July 31, 2019

 

Rob and Leah Shenot are 6th generation farmers, owners and farm market operators at Shenot Farm & Market in Wexford, PA, right outside Pittsburgh. Their Market is a year round operation offering produce that they grow, produce from other local farmers, as well as value added products, cheese, meat, gifts and more. Their relationships with their customers extend far beyond a financial exchange, and they look to regular visitors for inspiration and advice, as much as the customers look to them. When customers do come to them, it’s often for a suggestion on how to prepare something and this Rainbow Cauliflower Salad is one dish that Leah never gets tired of sharing. It’s delicious, beautiful, can be prepared rather quickly, and can easily be adjusted if you don’t have some ingredients on hand. Get a taste for yourself!

  • What would you pair with Brussels sprouts on a pizza? #repost @thursdaynightpizza
・・・
I wasn't sure I was ready for Brussels sprouts, but then my 2.5-year-old son begged for them yesterday at the market,  and everyone knows you NEVER say no when a kid begs for fresh Brussels sprouts instead of ice cream. I pan roasted them till they were caramelized with a little crunch left . . . and he ate every last piece on his plate. 🤯😁🍾 So now I'm brainstorming Brussels sprout 🍕 like a maniac before his toddler brain inevitably rejects the little brassicas again with zero notice. Any brilliant ideas/flavor pairings? .

  • Sauerkraut is finely cut cabbage that has been fermented by various lactic acid bacteria. Properly stored, it has a long shelf life and a distinctive sour flavor, both of which result from the lactic acid that forms when the bacteria ferment the sugars in the cabbage. The word “sauerkraut” is from German Sauerkraut which literally means “sour cabbage.” From sauer “sour” + kraut “vegetable, cabbage.” One of the best health benefits of Sauerkraut is that it contains live and active probiotics that act like your first line of defense against various harmful bacteria or toxins that might enter your body. #Sauerkraut #paveggies #cabbage #ferment #preserve #can #probiotic #shelfstable #healthygut #pennsylvania #vegetables

In Season in Pennsylvania: Hot Honey

There is a brand of hot honey we’ve seen on market shelves that food-lovers have been putting on everything – especially savory, rich foods, like pizza and fried chicken. We took this tasty concept, and Pennsylvania-ified it with local honey and spicy peppers from the farmers market.

This technique is as customizable as it is easy (just two ingredients!). You can use any type of peppers you like, or mix and match, depending on what’s ready to harvest from your garden or what looks good at the market. For great pepper flavor without too much heat, try poblanos from Jade Family Farm in Port Royal, PA; for medium heat, try jalapenos from Meadowview Farm in Kutztown, PA; or for extra-spicy, try some habanero peppers from Taproot Farm in Shoemakersville, PA. And, while usually we’re all about raw local honey, this recipe is best made with pasteurized honey, as the raw kind will crystallize. We like Dutch Gold Baker’s Special, which is based in Lancaster, PA!

Follow this simple tutorial to make — seriously — the tastiest hot honey, which we suggest you serve on everything: ice cream, eggs, pretzels, pizza, veggies, fried chicken and, in fact, deep-fried anything, popcorn, pork chops … the list goes on! #paeats Link: https://www.paeats.com/recipe/pennsylvania-hot-honey/
