NO MARKET TODAY ! !


MARKET IS CANCELLED TODAY. This is the first time we have ever had to call market because of weather, but since there is a State of Emergency for middle and east Tennessee and the Sewanee PD is advising against any road travel if not an emergency we feel it is prudent to keep as many people of the roads as possible.

See you next week!

Thanks!
Kir and Linda

The Weather For Market This Week

Recipes


SLOW-ROASTED, BACON-WRAPPED RABBIT (serves 4-6)
INGREDIENTS:
One rabbit from Three Oaks Rabbitry
Five slices of bacon
Vegetables in large chunks (this is usually whatever I choose to have as a side dish – sweet potatoes, or apples and onions, carrots, turnips etc.)
A splash of olive oil (if needed)
Salt and pepper
A splash of cider or white wine (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
Rinse the rabbit and pat dry. Sprinkle the rabbit with salt and pepper. Place a splash of olive oil in a roasting pan with a lid and add the rabbit on top. Once in the roasting pan, drape the rabbit with the bacon. With the pan open, roast the rabbit for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

After 15 minutes, add the vegetables and a splash of wine or cider (plus any olive oil for the vegetables) place the lid on the roasting pan, and turn the oven temperature to 200 degrees. Cook until the rabbit is done (160 degrees on a meat thermometer) and the vegetables are tender – this usually takes 2 or 3 hours.

I generally place the rabbit in the oven after lunch and take it out for dinner. If this is your first time slow roasting meat, just check on it once in a while to make sure that the meat is staying moist – most likely you’ll have an abundance of good juices from the meat, bacon, and vegetables. To serve the rabbit, I generally cut it into 6 pieces, the two back legs, I split the back down the middle, and also serve the two ribs and front legs together. Alternately, rabbit is fairly easy to pull from the bones when cooked this way.

Enjoy and feel free to contact me with any rabbit related questions. Jess (jessandnatew@yahoo.com)

JUST IN FROM DOGWOOD VALLEY GREENHOUSE
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has added several nice houseplants to the listings. Available now are needlepoint ivy, cape primrose, wandering jews, and two colors of spider plants, all in 10" hanging baskets. We also have several very nice succulent planters and herb collection baskets for your table or windowsill. Panda plants and aloe vera plants would also be good additions to your winter indoor garden. All these need to stay inside until our frost-free date near the end of April, then will be happy to spend the summer on porch or patio.

We are also making decisions about spring offerings of flowering hanging baskets, vegetable plants in gallon pots, and 6 packs of bedding plants. If there is something special you would be interested in, please let us know by e-mail to tnhomeschooler@yahoo.com.

Jess Wilson of In Town Organics and Summer Fields sends the following message: I want to point out something very exciting that happened in 2014 – that was the opening of Three Oaks Rabbitry on Gudger Rd. in Sewanee. I have raised rabbits for our family and a few lucky others for the past ten years. These rabbits live in large cages that are moved daily to allow access to fresh grass and plenty of hopping room and sunshine when desired. My rabbits are fed oats and locally grown alfalfa hay. I could not sell these rabbits legally in the past because there was not a processing facility in the area. Erich Eichler was willing to do the work (and waiting) needed to change this. Last year his processing facility was inspected by the USDA and FDA for processing rabbits for legal sale in our area! I’m so excited to finally have a legal outlet for selling my rabbits. Three Oaks Rabbitry sells my rabbits as well as rabbits that Erich raises himself and you can purchase them on the market! Domestic rabbit is an incredibly lean, white meat that can be substituted for chicken in many recipes. Check out a favorite rabbit recipe from our family in the RECIPE section.
