Bloomingdale Farmers Market: Don't cook recipes and tomato sale at Garner's Produce -- Sunday, 07-24-2022

From: Markets & More
Sent: Saturday, July 23, 2022 4:58 PM
Subject: Don't Cook Recipes and Tomato Sale BFM                                                          

Hi BFM Fans!
 

Come early - beat the heat- it is nice at 9 and 10 and 11.
 

Tomatoes. Sale. Garner's running their box sale early this year. 25 pounds/$20.  That is an incredible price for good seconds that are perfect for canning, saucing, gazpachoing, slow roasting and then freezing for the winter.  I do several boxes of slow roasted tomatoes every year and they take up remarkably little room in my freezer. Make tomato pies, tomato granita, dehydrate tomatoes, make sun dried tomatoes.

Call: include your name and market pickup

Dana Garner Boyle

Garner's Produce, LLC

What to eat with the temp gets to 98? Pretend you are in Provence:

  • Melon. Nice chilled melons: canary, honeydew, cantaloupe, sugar cubes and watermelons of all shapes, sizs and colors.  I can make a meal of half a melon that I have chilled for an hour in the fridge. I can also go Italian and wrap slices in Prosciutto.   
  • Robin's Gazpacho: Start with a thick, stale slice of good bread. (Or toast a fresh slice) Shred it and soak it in water until soft. Throw it in the blender or food processor with two cloves of garlic, a glug of olive oil and a dash of Sherry vinegar.  Blend until it looks like brown mayonnaise. Add a small red onion or large shallot, peeled and chopped and blend. Add a seeded cucumber, chopped and blend. Add a red pepper, seeded and chopped and blend.  Now for the tomatoes. Chop and salt them, let them sit in a bowl for 5 minutes until the juices start to run and then add them to the blender or processor and processor until very very smooth.  Taste. Adjust the seasoning. It may need additional salt, a teaspoon of sherry vinegar and even another glug of olive oil.  Then pour into a pitcher or container and cool in the fridge for several hour or overnight.  Retaste before serving; it may need a dash more vinegar. You want sweet tomato flavor to be balanced by acidity of the sherry vinegar and a bit of salt.  It should not taste acidic.  I love to serve gazpacho in interesting glasses topped with cubed melon. 
  • Salads: Tomatoes and cucumbers and feta cheese with or without olives are very satisfying with a good olive oil and vinegar/lemon. 
  • Boil up a couple of pounds of green beans to keep in the fridge as a salad base. Great with small steamed potatoes, tuna, capers, olives. Or Green Bean and Tofu Salad with Peanut dressing.
  •  
  • Stone Fruit Caprese since it is also stone fruit season.
  • and 5 salads for hot  hot days: Corn Salad with Tomatoes, Basil and Cilantro, Tuna Salad with Hot and Sweet Peppers, Pasta Salad with Cherry Tomatoes, salami and mozz, Chicken and Herb Salad with Nuoc Cham
  • Kohlrabi Slaw: 2 bulbs kohlrabi grated, 4 carrots grated, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons Cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon mustard, 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt. Freshly ground pepper.  Mix well.  Thanks, Shenandoah for this excellent recipe.

how did our Precincts 19 & 135 do in comparison to the rest of Ward 5 in the 06/21/2022 DC primary election?

The DC Board of Elections has released the final, certified results data from the Tuesday, 06/21/2022, DC primary election: www.dcboe.gov

Let’s review how the two voting precincts that represent Bloomingdale did in comparison with Ward 5's other precincts. 

Ward 5 precinct voting results - 

Tuesday, 06/21/2022      

                                            

 

Here is the link to the Ward 5 voting precinct map

https://www.dcboe.org/getattachment/Data-Resources-Forms/Maps/Ward5.pdf.aspx?lang=en-US   



 

              

 

 

 

Ward 5 has 18 voting precincts.   

Bloomingdale is covered by two of the 18 Ward 5 precincts:  

 

  • Precinct 19 cover Bloomingdale south of Rhode Island Avenue NW
  • Precinct 135 covers Bloomingdale north of Rhode Island Avenue NW                                       

The election results below are shared: 

By ascending precinct number order, and then

By votes cast by precinct -- in descending order.


  • .
     

 

 

 



Note that I have identified the three tiers of vote count by colors below –

highest vote count in blue,

middle vote count in yellow and 

lowest vote count in green.  


Observations:

Precinct 19 has the 2nd highest voter turnout.

Precinct 19 is in the top third of Ward 5's 18 precincts.

Precinct 135 is at the top of the middle third of Ward 5's precincts.

 

Is it any surprise that candidates running for office spend a lot of time near the Bloomingdale Farmers Market, located in Precinct 19, during campaign season? Not at all.

Precinct 19 has the second highest voter turnout in Ward 5.

Bloomingdale and Truxton Circle are ON THE MAP.

Penne with Toms, Basil & Tahini: Bloomingdale Farmers Market -- Sunday, 07-17-2022

Subject: Penne with Toms, Basil & Tahini: BFM Sunday                                                          

Hi BFM Fans!  

New this week : melons at Garner, new fruits at Reid, new Dumplings, Bao, Congee, handmade wheat or rice noodles at Chinese Street Market
 

We are open rain or shine Sunday-- 

Tomatoes.  Now that we are in tomato season, the question is: how best to store them. I have always belonged to the never refrigerate tomatoes team but lots of people researching this say that perfectly ripe tomatoes -- the ones that smell tomatoey and are soft and ready to eat can go into the fridge for a day or so without harm.   So keep them on a counter at room temperature until they are really really ripe and by then, you may not have eaten them all up. Read here and here.

Penne with Tomatoes and Basil and Tahini?  Yes. The tahini adds a buttery, nutty, creamy flavor so you do not miss the   pine nuts or the parmesan.   Try it. 


SHENANDOAH SEASONAL: Tomatoes!  Including Big Dena, Black Cherry and Sunpeach Cherry. 6 different eggplants: Traviata, Dancer, Beatrice, Fairytale, Annina and Patio Baby.
