Thank you to everyone who participated in the third annual Salsa Contest during the Durham Farmers’ Market this week! Congratulations to Kimberly Otwell of Little River Pantry, who’s garden salsa took first place, hands down.

Kim created the salsa using market ingredients from White Cedar Farm. Of the 91 people who voted on their favorite, 44 chose Kim’s:
Everything From The Garden Salsa
1 large zucchini
3 summer squash
1 medium green bell pepper diced small
1-3 jalapenos minced, depending on how much heat you like
2 pounds of heirloom tomatoes, any variety desired and cut into pieces (I used a mix of green zebra, sweet 101 and sun gold)
Runner-up Emily Tassinari of Coppal House Farm contributed salsa with a twist of blackberries:
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 pint sungold tomato
1 Cherokee purple tomato
1 pint of blackberries
2 tsp chili garlic oil

Chicken & Mushrooms
a perfect Labor Day weekend treat
Two new products available this season from Riverslea Farm are great for grilling this holiday weekend and all summer long:
Organically grained and pastured chicken – ground chicken, leg quarters and boneless breast, wings, thighs, drumsticks and chicken sausage (hot, curry and maple).
Oyster mushrooms – cultivated right on the farm!
Their suggestion: “How could you resist a chicken burger? All you need is ground chicken and some oyster mushrooms.”
