Now that your local Farmers’ Market has wrapped up for the season, and many of you probably didn’t have the opportunity to can or freeze your summer harvest- there are several options to eat locally during the winter.

Miel “Food is art and it needs to nourish all of our senses, but most importantly it needs to nourish our bodies. By farming, we’re able to provide more nutrients to our diners as well.” Co-founder Seema Prasad

City House- They pride themselves on locally sourced ingredients, including a restaurant garden and they even butcher their own meats.

Cafe Rakka-Hendersonville

Chef’s Market – Hendersonville

Local Taco- “I love love love Local Taco.  The ingredients are fresh and local and they usually have a great one or two special tacos daily.  I f you are looking for authentic mexican food you will not find it here…..that is not the point of the place so don’t fault it for not being that.  It isn’t supposed to be that.  The brisket with pickled onions is awesome, the spicy shrimp is probably one of the best shrimp tacos you can find in Nashville and the fried chicken is just fun.” Avery M. from Yelp

The Farm House Restaurant at Fontanel

Flyte

Grocery Stores:

Another addition to the mix will be an import and local micro-brewed beer section.”

Produce Place

Whole Foods

Green Light Market

Markets:

West Nashville Market – “There’s a noticeable chill in the air and I’ve found myself craving pumpkin muffins and hot cider. Hikes and a couple of nights around a campfire seem to be in order and my focus seems to be shifting to dark beers and red wines instead of my summer whites and pale ales.

My love for my neighborhood farmer’s market in West Nashville does not seem to be fading, however, even as the season’s coming to a close with less daylight and cooler temperatures.

My affection for the West Nashville Farmer’s market has deepened and blossomed throughout this summer season and as I wistfully saved extra green beans and froze extra batches of blueberries, I bemoaned the days when the Farmer’s market would end for the season. Well, imagine my surprise and happiness to learn that the West Nashville Farmer’s market is continuing into the winter season! The first weekend in November, they’re moving to the corner of 51st and Charlotte, just 2 blocks down from the summer location. Look for farmers in the corner of the Regions bank parking lot (look for the gold domed building) from 9 am – 11 am. This is a temporary location, for about a month or so, and a soon-to-be determined location will house an indoor market.

So, no good byes to my market this season! Kale and butternut squash, so glad to see you again!” – Amanda Allen- Local Choice

Downtown Market

Store Up for Winter

19 Aug

I can’t believe that it is the middle of August, and before you know it it will be the end of October. So what happens when you can’t get fresh local food during the winter? An easy way to make sure that you have fresh fruits and vegetables all winter long, is to freeze them now. When you commit to buy local food seasonally, you don’t have much to choose from during the cold winter months. This requires a little planning ahead, and if canning seems to ambitious you should try freezing. You can pretty much freeze anything – raw fruit and vegetables, cooked sauces, prepared foods, and meats. (To see a list of things NOT to freeze click here)You just need to know a few simple things:

  1. Invest in some good quality rigid plastic containers or freezer safe plastic bags
  2. Freeze food in 0 degrees or lower
  3. Master the technique of blanching your vegetables
  4. When you package your food, allow room for your food to expand and account for head space.
  5. Make sure you know how to thaw each item of food. It’s different for meats, vegetables, fruits, and prepared foods

You can find a thorough list of how to freeze just about anything here:

This week why not try freezing some fresh corn to enjoy during the winter.

Corn

Preparation – Select only tender, freshly-gathered corn in the milk stage. Husk and trim the ears, remove silks and wash.

Corn-on-the-cob – Water blanch small ears (1¼ inches or less in diameter) 7 minutes, medium ears (1¼ to 1½ inches in diameter) 9 minutes and large ears (over 1½ inches in diameter) 11 minutes. Cool promptly and completely to prevent a “cobby” taste. Drain and package. Seal and freeze.

Whole Kernel Corn – Water blanch 4 minutes. Cool promptly, drain and cut from cob. Cut kernels from cob about 2/3 the depth of the kernels. Package, leaving ½-inch headspace. Seal and freeze.

Do you have any special techniques, or favorite foods for freezing?
