Farmer's Market Report - June 17, 2017: Leesburg, VA

     So many great things at the market on Father's Day Weekend!  A lady was carrying this beautiful basket of her market finds and she let me take this picture of her berries and basil.  The abundance of Virginia is such a blessing!

     I found some great finds too to celebrate Father's Day.  Take a look!

     My husband really likes this Wild Hare Hard Cider located in Bluemont, VA  and so do I.  It is made with apples from the Shenandoah Valley.  We brought home Rocket which is tart and lightly tannic, with a refreshing apple sweetness underlying all.  I knew immediately what I was going to do with this baby.  Besides drinking it during our festive family cookout, I used it as braising liquid for making Pulled Pork.

     Trying out this new honey from Hidden Creek Apiary from Hillsboro, VA.  It has a beautiful floral taste.

     I whipped up some White and Dark Chocolate Chip Scones on Saturday for us to enjoy for Father's Day Weekend and tried out our new honey from Hidden Creek Apiary.  A picture is worth a thousand words!

     I also brought home some super crisp super fresh green beans from Pleitez Farm.

      Looking for ways to enjoy the beets and berries this season?  Here is a Summer Beet and Berry Salad which uses my Beet Salad with Pear Balsamic recipe.  The beets and spring mix greens are from  Shenandoah Seasonal, while the blueberries are from Allder School Berries.  I prepared the beets a different way this time.  I did not cook them, nor did I peel them!  I just pickled them with a Pear Infused Balsamic Vinegar from Taste of Old Country.
