Here is one of my favorite recipes that I prepared at the Camdenton Farmers Market in August – this dish was a crowd pleaser.

I start with small patty pan squash, I like cooking with the vegetables that are still young and immature because they are tender and have less seeds.  Then using my mother’s batter I coat the squash in an egg wash and then a cornmeal batter and deep fry to golden perfection!

You can also use this batter on eggplant, zucchini and a variety of other vegetables.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy zucchini is making this Zucchini Fritters recipe- easy and not to mention tasty!  We filmed this video at the Neosho Farmers Market and this recipe has become a favorite of readers.  I hope you find it as delicious as my family does.

Zucchini Fritters from the Market
2 medium sized, coarsely grated
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
2 scallions, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1 large egg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Sour cream

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.  Salt the zucchini with about 1 teaspoon of salt. Remove excess moisture by squeezing the liquid with paper towels.  Whisk egg in a large bowl; add the zucchini, flour, scallions, garlic, lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Mix to combine well.

TIP: zucchini is a popular summer squash that are usually picked when under 20 cm in length, when the seeds are still soft and immature. It can be prepared using a variety of cooking techniques, including steamed, boiled, grilled, stuffed and baked, barbecued, fried, or incorporated in other recipes such as soufflés. Its flowers can be eaten stuffed and are a delicacy when deep fried.

Cook fritters in two batches, by dropping five mounds of about 2 T. of batter.  Flatten the fritters.  Cook, turning once, until browned, 4-6 minutes on each side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve immediately, with sour cream on the side.

Market Lady, Lane McConnell, shows a new way to prepare squash using local ingredients from the farmers market in Mtn. Grove, Mo.

Cabbage Sautéed in White Wine
2 cups of sliced green cabbage
2 small green onions, sliced
Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
½ cup of a Missouri dry white wine

Sauté the onion and cabbage in oil for 2 minutes.

Shopping Tip
Choose the right cabbage for the recipe. Hard white (a.k.a. green) cabbage and red cabbage are delicious raw in coleslaw or cooked in soups, stews and sautés.

Storage Tip
Refrigerate cabbage in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for a week or even several weeks. If you find a cabbage and the outer leaves look ‘icky’, just remove them and the inner cabbage should be fine to use.

Next add wine, salt and pepper and sauté for an additional 6 minutes.  Serve alongside grilled pork, beef or chicken.

Cabbage can be used in a variety of recipes including soups and slaws.

The Market Lady’s Pound Cake with a Fresh Berry Sauce is perfect with any local berries.  Watch as Lane prepared a homemade pound cake and berry sauce at the Mtn. Grove Farmers Market.  Below find the video and recipe for this crowd pleaser recipe!

Pound Cake with a Fresh Fruit Sauce
Need one 9-by-5-inch loaf of pound cake, already baked and cooled

Fresh Fruit Sauce
1 1/2 cups (Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries  or Blackberries)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 lemons, zested and juiced
¼ tsp. vanilla

Add all ingredients and cook over medium-high heat until reduced and thickened. Stores for up to a week in your refrigerator or for a month in your freezer

Ideas for sauce: Take a slice of cheesecake or a rich chocolate torte and drizzle over a little strawberry sauce, and you will be amazed at how much better it looks and tastes.

Or, for an easy weeknight dessert that your kids will love, just pour it over a bowl of ice cream or make a fruit milkshake.

One of my family’s favorite parts of the summer is to go berry picking with our son.  We pick enough berries to last us through the year and simply freeze the berries in a freezer bag.  If you are looking for a fun and in-expensive family outing this summer- find a local you-pick, load the kids up in the car and head out to the country for fun on the farm.

When summer sets in and the hot temperatures are unbearable – I just don’t feel like turning on the stove.  That’s when my family experiments with non-cooked recipes.  This isn’t a fancy recipe that has a long list of ingredients, but it is simple and fresh.

There were many nights as a farm kid that my mother would prepare this dish after we would all get in from the hayfield or from working cattle. Heirloom tomatoes from the farmers market and fresh basil from my garden are highlighted in this easy tomato salad video from the Greater Springfield Farmers Market.
