Thanksgiving cranberries…

cranberries

We will have everything on hand to help you prepare for Thanksgiving at tomorrow’s Uptown Wednesday market.  We did want to remind everyone that we will not be at the Old Town Scottsdale Market this Saturday, November 26th, in order to give our employees the holiday weekend.  We will resume our regular Saturday schedule next week.  John’s Amish will be at the Uptown Saturday market during his normal hours, should you need anything from the farm.

For our Uptown shoppers make sure to get there early tomorrow, because the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is always one of our busiest markets during the year.  We will open at 8:00am.  That said, it is also a personal favorite, because it is fun to hear what everyone is making for their meal and their plans and traditions for the holiday.

Conventionally grown cranberries are known to have the high levels of pesticide residue, buying organic cranberries is one of the best things you can do for your Thanksgiving meal.  While it will be too busy for samples at the market tomorrow, here is a recipe for cranberry sauce that has become a tradition in my household.  I generally make this the night before, since I like to serve it a little chilled, but it is also easy and quick enough to make on Thanksgiving Day.

Cranberry Sauce

1 lb organic cranberries
Zest two organic Navel oranges
Juice four organic Navel oranges
Zest half a Persian lime and Lisbon lemon
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar

Add all to a sauce pan and cook over medium to medium-high heat for 15 or 20 minutes.  You will hear the cranberries start to pop, which is normal.  Stir occasionally.  Remove from heat and allow to cool fully before serving or refrigerating.  It will thicken when refrigerated.

 

See you tomorrow at the market and have a great Thanksgiving holiday!

Uptown Wednesday Farmers’ Market
Wednesdays from 8:00am – 1:00pm
