Carrboro Farmer’s Market Marks Fall Family Day

Sarah Blacklin of The Carrboro Farmer’s Market writes:

The chilly weather has got me in the kitchen. This week I’ve made bread, yogurt, chutney, stewed apples, and soup.  That’s a lot of evening stovetop time for me. If you’re like me and have a plethora of extra persimmons from the Market, you might want to try the tomato persimmon chutney recipe posted to the left.  It’s delicious.  Also, for a sweet dessert, try slow cooking apples, persimmons, ginger, cinnamon, and lemon juice.  I throw it in the crockpot and then eat it with yogurt for breakfast or overtop ice cream for dessert.  Fall is a perfect time to cook … and eat.
