Join us next Tuesday, September 23rd
at the Renton Farmers Market
Only 2 markets remain this season, and that is plenty of time to shop and stock up on fresh, local produce. The summer continues to be great for our farmers! You can expect to find tomatoes, peppers, onions, summer squash, broccoli, cauliflower, berries, melons and grapes, as well as a huge variety of Washington apples and pears, and we are beginning to see winter squash varieties at the market as well.

Recipe of the Week: Apple Chips
Photo and recipe courtesy of Whole Foods. View original recipe
Dried apples are great for snacks and lunchboxes. You can also toss them into a spinach salad with nuts and grapes, serve with roasted pork or alongside a sandwich as you would chips
- 2 apples (crisp varieties work best: think Fuji, Gala or Honeycrisp)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
Preheat the oven to 225°F. Slice apples as thinly as possible, about 1/8-inch or thinner (use a mandolin if you have one). Arrange slices in a single layer on 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with cinnamon if using. Bake 1 1/2 hours; flip slices and continue baking 1 1/2 hours longer or until completely dry and crisp (they will not crisp more upon cooling). Timing will vary depending on the moisture content of the apples and the thickness of the slices. Let cool. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
Other ideas: try this recipe using pears instead of apples, and sprinkle with ginger instead of cinnamon!
