Centaurs 4-H Horse Club To Visit Sunday Farmers’ Market

Our Farmers’ Market this week features several fun activities for kids and loads of delicious local food:

The Centaurs 4-H horse club will have kid-sized horse jumps, saddles to sit in and horse shoes for children to decorate.

We’re also going to be doing some bubble painting over at our Kids’ Corner. Come join us!

Yoga

Join certified instructor Lauren Theis during our Farmers’ Market for a series of moderately paced yoga sessions in our tranquil wagon house.

Incorporating meditation, breathing techniques and some gently refreshing yoga flows, this class is suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners. You’ll explore fundamental yoga postures, alignment and chakra balancing. Students should bring their own mat.

Yoga begins at 9 a.m. and lasts about an hour, giving you plenty of time to shop at our Farmers’ Market and grab a tasty breakfast.

“The Wagon House is a beautiful, serene setting for yoga and meditation,” Lauren said. “The space fills with morning light, sounds of the Walnut Brook, and birdsong. We couldn’t ask for a more perfect studio!”

Lauren was trained in 2016 at GLOW yoga studio in Basking Ridge and has been practicing for eight years. For questions, please email her at lauren.theis@gmail.com.

No registration is required. Cost per session is $15.

Product of the Week

June is the time of year you start seeing garlic scapes at our market. This week, you’ll find garlic scapes and garlic scape pesto at the River Lea House stand. Garlic scapes are the flower stalks that spring out of the garlic bulb.  They look a lot like green onions, except the coiled end of the garlic scape resembles a pig’s tail.

Garlic scapes are loaded with nutrition, offering plenty of vitamin C and pro-vitamin A to protect your skin and lungs. They are also loaded with fiber.

Here are some other benefits:

Osteoarthritis protection: Garlic scapes contain allium compounds that protect your body against the breakdown of bone tissue.

Anti-cancer: Those sulphur compounds that give garlic scapes their antioxidant properties also have anti-cancer properties.

Antioxidants: The body’s most powerful antioxidant—glutathione—can be boosted by the sulphur compounds in garlic. Glutathione helps protect our cells against viruses and bacteria.

Oxidative stress: The oil that gives garlic bulbs and scapes their pungent flavor can also help protect the kidneys and liver from oxidative stress.

Blood oxygen levels: Certain components in garlic scapes can keep organs and tissues healthy, while reoxygenating the blood.

Summer Garlic Scapes Dip

Here’s a tasty dip featuring peas, mustard and a cup of garlic scapes to give it a kick!

What You’ll Need:
3 cups green peas, fresh or thawed
1 tbsp yellow mustard
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 cup garlic scapes, chopped
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp hemp seed (optional)

What To Do:
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Process until smooth. Serve with fresh veggies.
Makes three cups

Product of the Week

The beet goes on! Beets have risen to superfood status within the past few years and with good reason. It is believed to offer quite an impressive list of health benefits: it helps lower blood pressure, it may slow the progress of dementia, it may prevent cancer, it helps promote a healthy body weight, and is a great source of potassium. You can learn more about its benefits here.

While, the best way to take full nutritional advantage of beets is to not cook them, we do offer this power-packed recipe that’s quite tasty too. If you want to learn all about making beetroot juice, check this out!

 

Buckwheat Beetroot Wraps

What You’ll Need:

For the wraps:
Four red beets to make one cup of beet juice
2 eggs
6 oz (1 1/3 cup) buckwheat flour
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 fl. oz. (1⁄3 cup) water, to thin a little
coconut oil, for frying

For the filling:
Hummus
Filling ingredients of your choice:
avocado
cucumber
roasted sweet potato wedges
microgreens
rocket (arugula)
mixed seeds
a squeeze of lemon juice

What To Do:

— Put the beetroot juice and eggs in a large mixing bowl and whisk until combined.

— Now add the buckwheat flour, cumin and salt and whisk together, slowly adding the water and olive oil until the mixture is smooth. Allow the mixture to stand for about 15 minutes at room temperature to thicken slightly.

— To cook the wraps, heat a thin crêpe pan or frying pan over a medium–high heat and rub a little coconut oil over the pan.

— Pour about 60ml (2fl oz/ 1⁄4 cup) of the batter into the pan and swirl the pan around to create a thin crêpe.

— Cook for 1–2 minutes until bubbles gradually pop over the surface of the crêpe and it loses its glossy look. Flip the crêpe using a spatula and cook for a further 30 seconds before removing from the pan.

— Repeat with the remaining batter using a little coconut oil each time.

— Place each cooked crêpe on top of each other (depending on your pan, thesubsequent crêpes will require much less time to cook than the first one as the pan heats up).

— To fill, take a cooked crêpe and spread hummus over the inside surface (the side you cooked second), then add the filling ingredients of your choice. Either roll the wrap into a tight roll or simple fold it in half and enjoy.

Conservation Conversation Focuses on Changes To Local Food Systems

Hunterdon Land Trust’s upcoming Conservation Conversation program offers both food for thought and thoughts on food.

The program “What’s the Future of Local Food?” spotlights the rapid changes to local food systems in recent years. From restaurants, Farmers’ Markets and Community Support Agriculture (CSAs) to purchasing organically grown food via the internet and ordering online from large chain supermarkets for home delivery, the options for getting fresh, flavorful meals has spiked.

This Conservation Conversation explores the potential impacts of changes on local farmers, small businesses and existing food systems, and how to respond to them. Guests include Alex Sawatzky of Sandbrook Meadow Farm and Ralph Celebre, owner of Basil Bandwagon Natural Market.

The program will be held in the wagon house of the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine St., Flemington on Monday, June 11 at 2:30 p.m.

This event is free, but please register in advance by emailing judy@hunterdonlandtrust.org or calling 908-237-4582. Light refreshments will be served.

Conservation Conversations are peer-to-peer learning opportunities — not lectures. Everyone is encouraged to participate in an active discussion on a variety of thought-provoking topics while meeting others who share your interests.

The next Conservation Conversation on equestrian recreation will be held Sept. 12.
