Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes
2 medium sweet potatoes
1 TBSP sour cream
1/8 c. butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp orange extract
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Lightly grease potatoes and pierce with fork. Place in microwave and cook until just tender. Cut potatoes in half, and scoop out pulp, being careful to leave a thin shell. Mash potato pulp until smooth, mix in sour cream, butter, brown sugar, and orange extract. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon potato mixture into potato shells. Sprinkle with pecans. Place in a baking pan and bake in preheated 400 degree oven until browned, about 20-25 min.

*"Eating a diet that follows nature’s rhythms is…far from a passing trend; it’s just good sense, and it’s how everyone ate not so long ago—before heart disease, diabetes and obesity managed to wheedle their way into every corner of North America.

The benefits of eating locally grown, seasonal food are many—it’s ultimately cheaper and better for small farmers and your community’s economy, and it’s a great way to keep in step with the natural world. Perhaps more compelling, though, eating seasonally is an especially excellent way to boost nutrition."* borrowed from Mother Earth Living

Enjoy seasonal vegetables and challenge your taste buds and cooking skills! And while you’re at it, enjoy the health benefits of eating an in-season plant-focused diet…place your order this week with Statesboro Market2Go!

Merry Christmas! The market is open!

I had a great time tonight with dinner guests, and they were so impressed with the vegetables I served, fresh from Market2Go. We had roasted sweet potatoes, carrots, beets, and onions (all roasted together in a 9×13 pan) and steamed broccoli. I have finally figured out the secret to roasting veggies. Cut them in about 1 inch pieces, and keep the sizes consistent so everything will be ready at the same time. Spray your dish with cooking spray, then cover the veggies with about 1/4 cup good olive oil. Toss to coat, and roast at 425 degrees about 30 minutes. Take out and stir, then continue roasting until veggies are tender, about 15 more minutes. So good!

Have you noticed our new seafood offerings? We’ve always had salmon, but now we’ve added shrimp and halibut. Be sure to get your fresh seafood for New Year’s Eve from us!

Wishing you all a beautiful Christmas!

Merry Shopping!!
