Seneca Falls Farmer’s Market Report – 7/20

Wall, actually cherry blossom time is over, but they have left behind another sensational benefit; fresh, juicy cherries, just bursting with flavor and at the height of flavor!This is it; the best NY has to offer for the cherry fans among us. Stop by today at the Seneca Falls Farmer’s Market between 9 AM and 1 PM. It will be cool down by the water in the Park. We are lucky to have this park and able to hold our event there each week. Our vendors have told us that it is among their favorite locations, especially on sunny, hot days when the parking lots are just too unbearable!Stop by today, enjoy the shade of the trees and maybe some lunch from our friends at the Hotel Clarence, and get some cherries before they’re all gone! Get them pitted and frozen, and you’ll have a fresh frozen treat all summer long. Or, if you must, how about a fresh Cherry Cobbler for dessert? (any fruit will do, blueberries, raspberries, but cherries…….wow!) Ingredients* 1/2 cup butter* 1 cup all-purpose flour* 1 cup white sugar* 1 teaspoon baking powder* 1 cup milk (evaporated will work if you prefer, powdered milk if you must!)* 2 cups pitted cherries (Mix between sour and sweet is best, but any cherry will do!)* 3/4 cup white sugar* 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour (separate from above)Directions1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).2. Place the butter in a 9×13 inch baking dish, and place in the oven to melt while the oven is preheating. Remove as soon as butter has melted, about 5 minutes.3. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, and baking powder. Mix in the milk until well blended, then pour the batter into the pan over the butter. Do not stir.4. Rinse out the bowl from the batter, and dry. Place cherries into the bowl, and toss with the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of flour. Distribute the cherry mixture evenly over the batter. Do not stir.5. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until golden brown. A butter knife inserted into the cobber should come out reasonably clean.
