Comal County Fair Parade Day.

(Friday, September 23, 2016)

On this day, New Braunfelsers from all corners of the county come Downtown bright and early

for one of our long standing traditions.  Now-a-days, you can come to the farmers market

on that morning for live music and a free breakfast provided by your local restaurants.

Sally M. Kingsbury Sarcoma Research Foundation.

This community event will be good for everyone.

Did any of you make the recipe we posted last week? (scroll below)

I did!!  It was fantastic!!

I think I will change the recipe a little the next time I make it, though.

Instead of using slices of apple, I will grate the apple and the cheese and

mix the ingredients to make a filling that can be spooned onto the pastry.

Also - be generous with the cajeta.  It is soooo good.

Modify the recipe - and substitute strawberries and High Street Chocolate!

When you visit market this weekend, take a tour of Europe!

Our bakery category has gone International.

Get some from each booth this weekend!

This week, visit the River Whey Creamery booth to get

ingredients for this easy, and delicious treat!

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Bake Time:  15 Minutes

Yield:  3 Tarts

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet, dust it lightly with flour and set aside.
  3. Place three of the puff pastry rectangles onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Place one teaspoon full of the cajeta, one ounce of the cheese, and one or two slices of the green apple in the center of each of the pastry rectangles; leave at least a ½ inch border around the edge.
  5. Dip your finger in water and moisten the ½ inch edge around the pastry rectangles.
  6. Place the three remaining puff pastry rectangles on top of the filled pastry and, pressing with a fork, crimp the edges closed on all four sides.
  7. Place the sheet tray with the pastry into the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes until the pastry is puffed and golden-brown-and-delicious! (G-B-D)
  8. Remove the sheet from the oven and let the pastry cool for 5 minutes.

 Serve warm, by itself, drizzled with chocolate sauce,

more Cajeta, or with vanilla ice cream!

 

Blackberries will be out of season soon.

Get them while you can and make this blackberry sherbet!

Puree the blackberries. Pour puree into a sieve and strain out the seeds. This will take a while, just keep pushing the mixture around with a spoon and pushing down on the mixture to extract the juice–yields roughly 1 3/4 cup blackberry juice. Add the sugar, salt, and lemon juice, and pour into your ice cream maker. Process according to your ice cream maker’s instructions, until the mixture is relatively firm. Meanwhile, beat the cream to stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the processed blackberry mixture. Spoon into a freezer-proof container and freeze until sherbet is set, preferably overnight.
