Hello From Branson, MO

Truth be told, we're actually in Hollister spending a few days fishing and having fun with the family. But we're miles away from Belhaven Market, so we won't be there this Saturday. Look forward to seeing everybody next week!

The Best Cookies Ever

Ok with a title like that I should have a cookie to back up my claim. Well I do: ginger chewies. I will have to admit I'm really a chocoholic; but these cookies are really really good to be missing chocolate! And everyone that tries them likes them. What makes them so great? The best ingredients. I use the best blackstrap molasses I've ever tasted (full flavored without the bitterness that usually mars the flavor of dark molasses). Also fresh ginger, lemon & orange zest gives these cookies a great taste that is best described as fresh & zingy.

I know someone is out there thinking what could be healthy about cookies (and healthy baking is my mantra:). Well I mentioned that there is blackstrap molasses in these cookies, I also use dried cane juice (sucanat) as a sweetener. These sweeteners are unrefined and contain significant amounts of vitamins & minerals. In addition to the more nutritious sweeteners these cookies are 100% whole grain, and low in fat. So try a ginger chewie at the Hearth Leaven Loaves stand, at Belhaven Market. But you better get there early, because they go quick!

Ingredients: organic stone-ground spelt flour, organic stone-ground white whole wheat flour, dried cane syrup, organic cane sugar, organic blackstrap molasses, cage free organic egg, canola oil, butter, orange zest, lemon zest, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, fresh ginger, cloves, salt

Market 7-7-07

Hi to all my faithful customers,

I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July planned, and enjoys celebrating the freedoms we have in this country with friends and family. Due to a death in my family I will not be baking much this week. My Aunt Phyllis after a long battle with cancer fell asleep in the Lord last week. So I will not be at the market on Saturday. But I will return next week. I will miss seeing everyone and look forward to seeing you all next week. Enjoy the 4th!
