Dublin Farmers' Market: August 13th

“Farming is a profession of hope”
― Brian Brett

"Ohio's Growing Cheese Culture" is Taking Place in Dublin!

"Across the state, small-batch cheese makers are crafting cow, sheep and goat cheese that’s turning the heads of local chefs and judges in national competitions. Any way you slice it, Ohio’s artisanal cheese market is on the rise," according to Crave Magazine, a local, Columbus dining magazine.


Blue Jacket Dairy's feta cheese pairs great with beer, specifically a wheat beer because of the cheese's mild taste and texture. Also, the dairy's sheep milk cheese, Bokengehalas, pairs wonderfully with a lighter cabernet sauvignon. Blue Jacket Dairy offers a variety of cheeses in several tastes and textures.

Dublin Farmers' Market: July 16th

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the mind.”

― Luther Burbank


Fruit + Sugar = SORBET!

Fruit sorbet is a summer classic treat. With plenty of fresh fruit options throughout the summer, there's a fruit sorbet for everyone! Here's a recipe on, "How To Make Sorbet With Any Fruit", from one of our favorite blogs, The Kitchn.

To make sorbet, you'll need about 2 pounds of fruit, a cup of sugar, water, and lemon juice. At least 24 hours before making the sorbet, place the ice cream base in the freezer to freeze.


How To Make Sorbet With Any Fruit
Makes 1 quart

Ingredients
2 pounds fresh fruit (4 to 5 cups after prepping and slicing)
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 to 4 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions:

Freeze the ice cream base: At least 24 hours before making the sorbet, place the ice cream base in the freezer to freeze.

Prepare the fruit: Wash and dry the fruit. Cut away or remove any rinds, peels, pits, seeds, stems, or other non-edible parts of the fruit. Slice the fruit into bite-sized pieces. You should have around 5 cups of chopped fruit, though a little more or less is fine.

Prepare the simple syrup: Combine the sugar and water in a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring gently once or twice. Simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved in the water, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Combine the fruit and 1/2 cup of simple syrup: Combine the fruit and 1/2 cup of the cooled simple syrup in the a blender, the bowl of a food processor, or in a mixing bowl (if using an immersion blender). Reserve the remaining syrup.

Blend until the fruit is completely liquified: Blend the fruit and the syrup until the fruit is completely liquified and no more chunks of fruit remain.

Strain the juice: If your fruit contains small seeds (like strawberries or raspberries) or is very fibrous (like mangos or pineapples), strain it through a fine-meshed strainer to remove the solids. Gently stir with a spoon as you strain, but don't force the solids through the strainer.

Test the sugar levels with the egg-float test: Wash and dry a large egg. Gently lower the egg, still in its shell, into the sorbet base. You're looking for just a small nickel-sized (roughly 1-inch) round of shell to show above the liquid — this indicates that you have the perfect balance of juice and sugar. If you see less shell (dime-sized), stir in a little more sugar syrup; check with an egg and continue adjusting as needed. If you see more shell (quarter-sized), stir in a little water or fruit juice; check with an egg and continue adjusting as needed. (Store leftover simple sugar in the fridge.)

Stir in the lemon juice: Stir in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Taste the sorbet base and add more lemon juice if it tastes to sweet and bland.

Chill the base: Cover the sorbet base and refrigerate until very cold, at least 1 hour or overnight.

Churn the sorbet: Pour the chilled base into the ice cream machine and churn. Continue churning until the sorbet is the consistency of a thick smoothie. This typically takes between 10 and 15 minutes in most machines.

Freeze the sorbet: Transfer the sorbet to pint containers or other freezable container and cover. Freeze for at least 4 hours, until the sorbet has hardened. Homemade sorbet will generally keep for about a month in the freezer before starting to become overly icy.

Serve the sorbet: Let the sorbet soften for a few minutes on the counter, then scoop into serving bowls.
