I went to the Edenton Farmer’s Market last week and managed to stay under my goal for $40 finally. I spent $19 on produce, $5.50 on bread, and $9.83 on meat for a grand total of… $34.33 – yay me!
What I got for my money:
- Asian Bekana (pictured to the left)
- Bullhorn Peppers
- Bok Choy (pictured in the middle)
- Butternut Squash
- Garlic (I still have a few bulbs in my pantry from a few weeks ago, but I love garlic)
- Sourdough Bread
- Ground Beef
- Beef Kidney
I don’t quite have a plan yet for anything, other than pickling the beets (yum). The Bekana (Bukana?) is a new one for me. Doing a little research shows that it is sort of an Asian green? I decided that is how I will use it. I found a mixture of recipes showing it cooked and raw so I have a bit of variety.
The beef kidney is something that I’ve never purchased before but I thought that it would be a nice little treat to mix in with the dog food. Ideally, I would like to make all of my dog food from scratch. Not today but maybe one day.
If you’re paying close attention to the picture, you may have noticed that there is a bit of ginger that I haven’t mentioned. One of my friends harvested a small batch of ginger and gave me one of the roots. I used that last night to make my fresh ginger soda. Check back tomorrow for more information and a step by step for my ginger bug.
