Customers and Farmers Applaud the Bryn Mawr Farmers Market

The Bryn Mawr Farmers Market is growing in size and success steadily this season: customers and farmers, vendors and patrons of all varieties are giving us positive feedback about the offerings and success of sales at the market. This means we thank YOU for being the fabulous clientele that you are and we thank the local farmers for supplying such a fresh supply of fruit, vegetables, meats, cheeses, honey, and the list goes on... for all of us to enjoy.

Today's market is at the peak of the season and therefore market offerings are great and quality is exceptional. Enjoy this height of the season now through September. We realize not everyone likes to cook, but we can happily assemble meals from the farmers market with little or no effort. And on days that we want a tiny bit of homemade goodness we may stick to the simplest creation in the kitchen: beverages!

Here's a delicious adaption of a southern favorite - Summer Peach Tea Punch: use fresh peaches from the Bryn Mawr Farmers Market and simply put a pot of water on the stove to boil, add a few of your favorite tea bags and remove from heat to steep for a minute or two or three, add mint or other herbs to taste and crush with a spoon against the side of the pan to release flavor in the oils of the plants. Discard the teabags and herbs. In another pot boil one cup of water and 1 cup of suger or another sweetener of your choice [test for desired sweetness as the proportions will vary] and stir the "simple syrup", put aside to cool, and eventually use as the sweetener alongside the fruit in this drink adding 1/4 cup at a time until the degree of sweetness is ideal for your palette. In a separate container mash peeled fruit and push through a strainer to extract juice {or use a juicer or a blender depending on the degree of pulp you want in your drink} and combine all. Chill and serve poured over ice!
