Strawberries in November? It's true, strawberries do grow in Oregon in November. Aichele Farms from Hermiston, Oregon, (183 miles away for those of your who are curious) contacted us early this week to let us know that they still have delicious berries ready for market. They will be here this Saturday and possibly next (depending on the first frost), so if you didn't get a chance to freeze strawberries for winter or if you just want a treat, stop by and say hello. Better yet, check out the October cooking demonstration recipe below and try it yourself with fresh berries this weekend.

Long time HFM favorites Darris Dietz Pottery and Lauri Arrington Jewelry will be joined by Naked Organics with all-natural soap and Northwest Custom Animal Supply with hand-crafted high-quality collars, leashes, and harnesses.

Featured Vendor: Naked Organics
soap by naked organicsNaked Organics is the result of over 30 years of friendship between Michele Fouts and Shannon Zambito. Two connoisseurs of soap and all that is cleanliness, these best friends created the perfect outlet to their quest for the highest quality soap by making their own. Frustrated with the lack of options and failed promises of products to clean without harmful ingredients, Shannon and Michele set out to create their own soaps with unsurpassed quality and performance.

Naked Organics is dedicated to the well being of you and the planet by using only the finest quality organic ingredients, essential oils and botanicals. We also offer a full line of fragrance free products. Unlike many all-natural soaps, our bars and liquids have a luxurious lather and the bars will last much longer without melting into a goopy squishy mess. Be refreshed and surprised by the luxury that organic soap can deliver. Get naked with Naked Organics and enjoy! 
berryicecreamCooking Demo: Jeremy Niehuss of In Good Taste Cooking School
kid watching ice cream demoOn a rainy October morning at the Hollywood Farmers Market, during the moment in the year when signs of summer wane but before pumpkins and falling leaves usher in the fall, Chef Jeremy Niehuss demonstrated Summer Berry Ice Cream, a clever and decadent way to capture the last flavors of summer. A growing crowd clad in rain gear watched as Jeremy explained each of the three simple steps to the recipe, and the rate of disappearing ice cream samples confirmed what every lucky sampler already knew: Chef Niehuss' ice cream is delicious--even in the rain.

You can give this one a try at home! Also, rescue your frozen berries from freezer burn by preparing the berry coulis, the first step of the recipe. The coulis is freezable for future ice creams or waffle toppings.

Summer Berry Ice Cream
Makes 7 cups

Berry Coulis
2 cups berries, such as blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries or marionberries
1/2 cup baker's sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Ice Cream Base
9 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
3 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract or bean paste
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

explaining the berry coulisTo make the berry coulis combine the berries, sugar, lemon juice and salt in a small sauce pan. Cook the berries over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thick and reduced by 3/4. Remove from the heat, strain through a fine mesh strainer into a shallow dish
and refrigerate until cold.

To make the ice cream base combine the egg yolks and sugar together in a large mixing bowl and whisk until they are pale and fluffy.

Place the milk and cream in a sauce pan. Scrap each half of the vanilla bean with a knife and place the seeds and  pod in the cream. Add the salt and bring the cream to a simmer over medium heat.

Slowly add the hot cream to the egg yolks while whisking. The goal is to temper the eggs without coagulating them. Return the custard to the sauce pan and continue to cook over medium heat until it reaches 180˚F, constantly stirring the custard with a heat resistant rubber spatula to avoid cooking the eggs.

Strain the custard through a fine mesh strainer and cool the mixture in a mixing bowl over an ice bath.

Once the ice cream base is cool stir in the berry coulis and make the ice cream according to the ice cream maker manufacturer's directions.

Equipment: Cutting board and knife, measuring cup, measuring spoon, small sauce pan, wooden spoon, 2 fine mesh strainers, large mixing bowl, whisk, large sauce pan, heat resistant rubber spatula, strainer and an ice cream maker.
