Recipe: Pretzel Dip

Posted by Rachel Roades on

Who doesn't love the smell of fresh bread baking? It's one of my favorite smells in the kitchen and I can never wait for the bread to fully cool before trying a piece of that fresh baked goodness.

To top it off, I found this recipe for homemade pretzel bread and I always have to double or triple it. My family loves when I make a batch to share.

Instead of dividing the dough into two balls, I pulled off about a tablespoon at a time to make pretzel bites. They took about 20 minutes in the oven and about half were gobbled up in the time it took me to upload and edit pictures. After (carefully!) dipping the dough in the baking soda water bath, I sprinkled these with our Basil Infused Sea Salt for an added pop of flavor.

Enough about pretzels (for now)...

How many of you attend the Lansdale Farmer's Market or follow it on social media? In case you missed it, Amazing Acres Goat Dairy has been experimenting with some delicious new flavored chevres, including our very own Smoked Onion Spread! It's incredibly delicious and selling out fast so get to the market early to get yours! In light of this delicious new treat, I thought I would use it as well as our Roasted Garlic Mustard to create the last flavor of the month recipe for June.

Ready for a warm, cheesy, flavorful snack? This will be great for game day, parties, appetizers, or just because you feel like it.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup + 1 tsp Small Batch Kitchen Roasted Garlic Mustard
  • 4 oz Amazing Acres Smoked Onion Chevre (plain or garlic chevre would do as well)
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp local raw honey
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard (optional)

Let the cheese sit out a bit to get to room temperature. Add all ingredients to mini crockpot or double boiler. It took about 30-45 minutes to get hot and melted. Keep a good eye on it so it doesn't burn.

If you have a mini crock for dips you can keep this hot for a party or dish out right before serving. If you don't have the time or desire to make the pretzels yourself, it's pretty easy to find some freshly baked to bring home.

Recipe: Roasted Garlic Mustard Coleslaw

Posted by Rachel Roades on

This month we have given our Flavor of the Month award to our Roasted Garlic Mustard. We once again turn to Lancaster Farm Fresh Coop to get this lovely organic garlic. Roasted to savory perfection, we add our garlic to brown and yellow whole grain mustard seeds for an incredible texture and bursts of flavor, then kick it up a notch with white wine and apple cider vinegar. This mustard isn't shy and will brighten up any dish.

For our first recipe with Roasted Garlic Mustard, I whipped up a nice summertime coleslaw.

One of my favorite perks about this job is being at the farmers markets. It's an incredible environment to work in and supporting my fellow vendors while bringing quality food home to my family is a win for everyone. I'm delighted to say that the bulk of our ingredients for this recipe were purchased at the Lansdale Farmers Market.

 

 



Roasted Garlic Mustard from Small Batch       Kitchen (yours truly)


Scallions from Green Zameen Farm
     
Cabbage from Kimberton CSA
     
Honey from Stagecoach Apiaries
     

Another fun thing about shopping around your local farmers markets is seeing the variety on the tables. I have never before seen such large scallions before and the flavor is so fresh and crisp I'm delighted there's so much to work with. I've seen green cabbage, I've seen purple cabbage, I've seen heads that were larger than a pumpkin- but I had never seen a conical cabbage before. It's slightly sweeter than a typical green cabbage and with a little less of a bite- perfect for this recipe.

Shall we get to it then?

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons Roasted Garlic Mustard
4 tablespoons plain unsweetened yogurt
1/4 tsp salt
black pepper to taste
1 large carrot, shredded
1/3 cup chopped scallions
3 cups of chopped cabbage

Mix together the honey, mustard, yogurt, salt and pepper for the dressing. Add the carrot, cabbage, and scallions to a large mixing bowl. Pour in the dressing and toss to coat.

A fresh and crunchy side, excellent for summer picnics and cookouts.

Happy tasting everyone!
