PREVIOUSLY AT THE MARKET

Lori and Scott of Timber Buck Maple were preoccupied with preparations for their son's wedding, so they didn't attend the Market last week. And the musician and the community group didn't start til 5:30pm.

But GG Bakes, Sunscape, Aguilera, Clover Meadow, and Mr. T's were busy from the opening bell at 4pm all the way to closing time at 7pm.

Father Bob checked-up on the Market and stocked-up on a few items.

A break for some italian ice.

RECIPE FOR THIS WEEK

Selected by Maxine Manjos

Zucchini Garlic Soup

courtesy of thekitchn.com

Makes 1-1/2 quarts.

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 white onion, sliced
  • 8 to 9 large cloves garlic, sliced thinly
  • 4 medium zucchini, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation

  1. Melt the butter in a heavy 4-quart pot over medium heat. When it foams, add the sliced garlic and onions and cook on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, or until the onion is soft and translucent. Keep the heat low enough that the garlic doesn't brown; you want everything to sweat.
  2. When the onions are soft, add the zucchini and cook until soft. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Simmer at a low heat for about 45 minutes.
  3. Let cool slightly, then blend with an immersion blender until creamy, or transfer to a standing blender to puree. Be very careful if you use the latter; only fill the blender half full with each batch, and hold the lid down tightly with a towel.
  4. Taste and season with ginger, salt and pepper. Like most soups, this is significantly better after a night in the refrigerator to let the flavors meld.
