Ok so this post relates to food b/c Hawaii is what inspired Daniel and I to get involved in Belhaven market.

So when we went to a luau (roasted pork-yum!) in Hawaii they had a band and the music was really fun and mellow. I have thrown a luau party for Daniel's birthday since we've been married (so last week we had our second luau birthday)! Well I wanted to find some theme music and this is what I came up with. Na Palapalai is the name of the group. For those of ya'll blessed enough to go to Hawaii, this should take you back. And for those of you who haven't been, you can still enjoy this CD, really mellow and fun.So in Hawaii Daniel and I really enjoyed going to the local Kauai Farmer's Market and buying local foods (fern, sweet potato shoots, mango, avocado- to name a few) to cook. We can do that here at the Belhaven Market and so can you. I hope to see you there.

Our First Belhaven Market

Here are some pictures from our first Belhaven Market! It was a great success- we sold out and had a great time. Tim Avalon's bluegrass band provided fun background music, and friends and family stopped by to say hello. Special thanks to the Passion Fish Potter, Kjon's, Deva's Harvest, and everybody else for helping us newbies figure things out!

Pumpernickel Currant Rye

My Personal Favorite! Just look at the ingredient list and you'll see why: cocoa powder and blackstrap molasses in addition to other ingredients give this bread a great flavor. This bread isn't too sweet for a sandwich though. A customer suggested I add raisins, great tip! I did and really liked them, currants seem to work well because of their small size.

Ingredients: organic stone-ground whole wheat flour, organic stone-ground whole rye flour, water, currants, cocoa powder, blackstrap molasses, apple cider vinegar, canola oil, salt, yeast, caraway seeds

Coming to Belhaven Market

PB & J Turtles for kids and kids at heart- coming this Saturday to the Belhaven Market!

These tasty snacks are made from a buttermilk white whole wheat dough. They have a fluffly texture and great mild taste in addition to being filled with natural peanut butter and organic jelly! As with all our breads, these are 100% whole grain- but your kids don't have to know that!

Ingredients: white whole wheat flour, water, (filling: natural peanut butter, organic jam), honey, dry buttermilk powder, oil, butter, egg whites, salt, yeast

Fresh Mississippi Sourdough

Here's one of the fresh whole-grain breads we'll be selling at Belhaven Market starting next Saturday! Beneath the crust of this rustic loaf this bread is full of clean, tangy sourdough flavor.

This is Daniel's favorite bread so it will definitely stay in the line up.
