PUMP UP THE SEASON

28/09/18 10:21 AM

The Creative Wedge has a new and zesty dip, Jack Attack! A delicious blend of pepper jack cheese, jalapeños and Speedy’s #46. Make sure you stop by the tent and grab a container for Sunday football.

Elizabeth Eats will be selling berry bites, vanilla cake bites, coffee bites, brownie bites, strawberry chocolate fudge, pumpkin spice nut butter,  savory nut and seed bread, vanilla almond milk, chocolate cashew milk, maple pecan milk, and turmeric almond milk. All products are gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and organic.

SunnySnacks Organics is excited to bring back their popular fall flavors.  In addition to their regular menu, they’ll have Pumpkin Spice Latte BubbyBalls (gluten free, Paleo, Whole30), Pumpkin Pie Hummus (gluten free), and savory Smoky Butternut Hummus (gluten free). Everything is completely organic, plant-based vegan, and non-GMO.

FOOD NEWS YOU CAN USE

It’s never too early to think about unique holiday gifts. It’s the last weekly adventure with our friends at Old Beach Green Market and Old Beach Art Market in ViBe Park. Come out for the best in local and sustainable products in the 757. They’ll be moving to a monthly market every on third Saturday, beginning in October.

It’s Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend at the oceanfront. Swing by OBFM before you head on down to the beach for the Neptune Parade, sand sculpture contest, arts & crafts shows, 8k race or the regatta.

A gentle reminder: this has been a tough year for farmers across the Commonwealth. Challenges including pests and generally lousy weather has made an already challenging job even more so. Remember, local farmers rely on local support – you.

RECIPE
PUMP UP THE PUMPKIN … SPICE

Brace yourselves for pumpkin-flavored everything for the next few months. Want to jump on the bandwagon, but in a simple way that doesn’t involve artificial ingredients or unnatural flavors? Then whip up a batch of my Pumpkin Spice mixture.

In a medium-sized bowl, add 4 teaspoon ground cinnamon. 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves and stir to incorporate. Use in baking, to season, or stir a spoonful in a latte. This stores great in an airtight container, and the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.
