Our hearts go out to all those who’ve suffered damages and losses in this weekend’s flooding.  We experienced some mild flooding along our back entryway and were forced to close early yesterday but we were lucky to suffer no further damages. As we all take stock of the community around us, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and helpless.  Here are a few ways to get in.volved this week and help out with some worthy recovery efforts:

  • Urban Roots: Their gorgeous 3.5 acre East Austin farm suffered 7+ feet of water in some places, comprimising many of their crops.  They’re looking for extra volunteers all week to help with Operation Farm Rescue 2k15
  • Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN): This organization was responsible for many of the effective relief efforts during the Onion Creek Flood a few years back.  Support their current efforts with a donation and keep your eyes on their website for volunteer opportunities.

Vendor Spotlight

Fruitful Hill Farm – Sustainable Family Farming


Monthly profiles of some of our favorite vendors
This is one of our favorite times of year.  Not necessarily because strawberries are coming in plump and sweet, or because fresh figs are just around the corner (though we’re excited about all that, too) but because Texas garlic is finally in season again!  If you’ve never tasted garlic grown in our Texas soils then you’re in for a treat.  The robust flavor and pungent kick are unmatched by the garlic you find in most grocery stores. Currently we’ve got a few fresh and cured varieties, including a cured garlic from the lovely family of folks growing sustainably-grown produce out in Bastrop, Fruitful Hill Farm.  We first encountered them at the Barton Creek Farmers Market a few years ago, and we’re impressed by the maturity and knowledge of one of their young sons who was helping run the market.  Come by this week and try their in.season garlic and get to cooking!

  1. Pour the marinade in a large resealable plastic bag. Set aside 1/2 cup for basting and refrigerate. Add beef to remaining marinade; turn to coat. Seal bag; refrigerate for 1 hour, turning occasionally.
  2. Drain and discard the marinade. On metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternate beef, mushrooms, zucchini, potato, onions and squash. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. Baste with reserved marinade. Continue turning and basting for 8-10 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Serve meat and vegetables over rice if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.

Oatmeal Chocolate Mousse with Strawberries

The United States is the world’s largest producer of strawberries, accounting for 29% of global production according to AgMRC, and while our state may have some competition, Texas is definitely not lacking in strawberry pride. Spring is the onset of Texas strawberry season and small towns like Poteet have been supporting and creating a strawberry fan club since 1948, the first Poteet Strawberry Festival. Today, many small towns in and around Poteet are responsible for producing some of the most flavorful and sweet strawberries around, selling locally in order to preserve a fresh and flavorful taste.

Since we’re committed to seasonal eating and local sourcing, you’ll pretty much only find strawberries in our produce section when Texas strawberries are available, so you can imagine how exciting this season is for us.  We’ve been known to carry Poteet strawberries, but right now we’re very excited to be sourcing some delicious berries from Fruitful Hill Farm in Bastrop, TX.  This small family operation prides themselves in harvesting their berries mere days before delivery, and also chooses not to wash their berries, as this decreases their shelf life and deteriorates flavor.  Fruitful Hill Farm practices sustainable agriculture, utilizing organically approved pest control methods only when necessary.

Aside from pies, jams, and salads, a common trick to draw out a strawberry’s natural juices is to macerate your strawberries by adding a touch of sugar and setting aside for 10-15 minutes. If your mouth is already watering, try this overnight breakfast mousse listed on Food 52 and provided by Lisa @ Healthy Nibs and Bits.

in.gredients

⅓ cup oatmeal

⅓ cup unsweetened almond milk

½ cup yogurt

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

½ tablespoon chia seeds

1 teaspoon agave nectar or honey

jar or airtight container

*3 large strawberries, sliced

in.structions

Except for your strawberries, mix together oatmeal, almond milk, yogurt, cocoa powder, chia seeds, and agave nectar or honey, adding more sweetener to your liking.

Place the mixture into ⅓ of your jar and top with sliced strawberries. Cover this layer with more of your oatmeal mixture and repeat with another layer until the jar is full.

Cover, refrigerate overnight and enjoy the next morning!

*For an additional burst of flavor, you can macerate your strawberries using brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, or balsamic reduction, setting aside before layering into your oatmeal, chocolate mousse.
