Monona Farmers' Market

Fresh, local, quality produce and other agricultural products in your community


This Week ~ August 6th

Sweet corn season is in full swing.  Stop by Nehmer’s Produce and Greenhouse and Natalie’s Garden and Greenhouse to pick up freshly picked local corn.  For a little variety, butter up your sweet corn with this trio of seasoned butters: truffle butter, honey butter and herb butter.

Truffle butter – ¼ cup of butter softened, 2 cloves garlic chopped, 2 teaspoons truffle oil, 1/8 tsp. salt, pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Honey butter – ¼ cup of butter, melted; 1 T of honey, ½ teaspoon chopped parsley

Herb butter – 1/4 cup butter softened, 1 T finely chopped fresh herbs (such as cilantro, basil, chives and/or flat leaf parsley) ½ tsp kosher salt, ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper, dash of Cayenne pepper

These seasoned butters make enough for four ears of corn.  Prepare ahead of time by mixing softened or melted butter with other ingredients. Serve at room temperature.

This weeks live entertainment is Leafy Greens, two musicians who discovered they played the same instrument and decided to form a band. Enjoy the music of this ukulele-bearing, folk-rock duo.
