Friday Update News!

I hope your holiday preparations are coming along well. For today’s update, please see Forest Find’s listing, they’ve added Fire Cider & Osha Tincture, both great respiratory aids in winter.
You still have time today to get preorders in with many of the vendors. And given that the weather in Michigan is truly the “don’t like it wait 15 minutes” variety these days you can also drive through the market to pick up your orders.

The Pasturage LLC of Montague
Bone-in lamb shoulder is perfect for curry. Beat the cold, both the weather and your health, with an infusion of spice and stock. The bone in the shoulder creates a rich sauce with the benefits of certified grass-fed bone broth. This is how I make it: defrost the shoulder. Then braise the meat in a pot just big enough to hold it and just covered with water. Put in the spices that are whole at this time like cinnamon sticks, peppercorns, cloves, cumin seeds, coriander, dried hot peppers or whatever your curry recipe calls for. Braise 2 hrs, but not more. Strain. Put the stock back in the pot, flavor with additional spices like turmeric, ginger, onion, garlic, etc and let reduce to desired consistency. Let meat cool, take off bone. Add to reduced sauce. Serve with basmati rice and yogurt.  Or throw it all in your instant pot and set to pressure cook for 30 minutes. The smell alone clears your sinuses!
