Toward the end of July, we were in Pitsburg, IL, and Warrenton, MO, for Food Fairs.
We distributed produce like carrots, potatoes, apples, radishes, and watermelons. We hope the recipes we collected will be a good resource for the community.
Kay’s Homemade Applesauce
- 7-10 Apples, peeled and cored
- 3-4 TBS lemon juice
- ¼ cup sugar
- ½ bag marshmallows
- 1 cup water
Place all ingredients in a pot and cook until apples are tender. Add water if needed. Mash.
Leonard’s Apple Crisps
- 1 pkg of crescent roll dough
- 3-4 apples peeled and chopped
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup butter
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine apples, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon in a bowl. Place crescent roll dough flat on a baking sheet, fill with a spoonful of apple mixture, fold dough over top of apple filling (it’s ok if the apple filling shows). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until pastry is golden and crisp.
- 5-6 potatoes peeled (optional) and cubed
- 1 pkg ranch seasoning
- Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix potato cubes with seasonings. Bake for 1 hour or until potatoes are tender.
- 4 cups cabbage, shredded
- 1 cup carrot, shredded
- 10 radishes, shredded
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 TBS malt vinegar
- 1 cup mayonnaise
Combine cabbage, carrots, and radishes and mix well. Mix sugar, salt, vinegar, and mayonnaise until sugar and salt are dissolved. Pour mayonnaise mixture over vegetables and toss thoroughly. Serve cold.
