Conway, AR:  Opening Bell: Chicken, Eggs, Jelly, Beef!


Hello friends!

We will have lots of suet cakes on the extra table this Friday for one dollar each. Feed the birds.

Now is the time to be planning your garden and acquiring seeds. I’ve been talking with several of our Growers and they have big plans for this season. Looks like we will have some amazing things in 2021! Check out the featured items this week.

Elephant Garlic plants are now available from Cedar rock Ridge. They like full sun and rich soil. Plant now and harvest in early June.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. For instance, type in the word “sale” or “pork” and see what pops up. We have over 475 items available now!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)

In accordance with the current guidelines, we will not have more than 10 people in the lobby at any time. We have four volunteers who can bring your order to your car if you prefer, just call or text 501-339-1039.

BITES OF MANY SORTS

This week I thought I would share some basic Egg Bite info, a recipe if you will, that I’ve been using since last summer when my mom introduced me to them. Her very Italian recipe is listed in a previous newsletter and I’ve had fun ever since experimenting with flavors, seasonings and ingredients.

The beauty of an egg bite is its simplicity, basically a mini quiche that can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for a quick healthy breakfast or anytime pick me up snack. They can be as lean or as fatty as you like, keto or carb rich, vegetarian or meat lovers. They keep in the refrigerator up to 10 days, travel well and are a fun addition to breakfast gatherings.

For the record this is old style grandma cooking where you use a bit of this and a pinch of that. I never measure.

First off – pans. If you use a muffin tin or 4 oz mason jars you’ll have to grease them for the bites to come out. Silicone molds eliminate the need for that and has become my preference as they don’t brown or crisp as easily.

Basic recipe: 6 or 7 eggs
a generous handful of your favorite shredded cheese
about a teaspoon of salt (I like pink salt)
a good shake of pepper
(optional) a couple tablespoons of milk, cream, or sour cream.

This alone makes a great basic no nonsense egg bite. Cook at 350 till a toothpick comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes. Test with a toothpick.

The fun comes in with additional ingredients and is only limited by your imagination: What follows are some I’ve tried and will use again:

chopped bacon wilted kale finely chopped onion
chopped ham wilted spinich black olives
sausage mushrooms chopped peppers
pepperoni cooked asparagus chopped roma tomatoes
canned salmon artichokes basil, organo, thyme, etc
Italian Sausage chopped onions capers
Anchovies (sparingly!) blue, swiss or feta cheese specialty olives

The beauty of this method is that the flavor combinations are only limited by your imagination. If you know of a great ingredient not listed here speak up because it’s definitely worth trying!

As those who ordered last week know Danny’s Greens took the proactive step of cancelling all orders due to a covid scare. Thankfully it was a false alarm however Danny has decided to give his beds a chance to grow a bit more before relisting and will have product available next week. He sends his thanks for your continued support.

The young chickens at Horton’s Farm have started laying like crazy and we find ourselves overrun with eggs. So we’re running a special on eggs this week. For health and safety, our eggs will not be handled for 48 hours prior to Market delivery.
