Beets two ways at the Farmers Market

Friday was a beautiful day with less humidity and a breeze which I was thankful for, as I did a cooking demo at the North Berwick, ME, Farmers Market. I prepared two recipes from my No Fret Cookbook, featuring beets two ways: Asian style beets and Chocolate Surprise cupcakes which has beets in the batter and beet juice in the frosting. Both were hits but as always, the cupcakes were the favorite. People asked if I’d be back and said that the book would make great gifts. During the demo, my husband Steve played songs from the CD’s that come with the book. This is a very friendly local community market and there is plenty of parking. After the demo we talked with the farmers and vendors while enjoying local peaches, fresh baked bread and brought home corn and veggies. The market takes place outside on Fridays from 3:00 – 6:00. If you are in the area, check it out for delicious local fruits and veggies and inquire about the possibility of becoming a vendor.
