OLS: Week 9

DSC_3943

One Local Summer is already at Week 9.  Nine whole weeks of making one meal with local ingredients per week.  I can’t believe I’ve made it this far!  So, this week I went for simple, since I was doing a whole week of zucchini recipes.  The simple though paid off with an incredible taste, and something I really hadn’t thought of doing – making pancakes from scratch.  Easier than I ever would’ve thought!  One egg, one cup of flour, about 1.5 cups of yogurt, and the non local ingredients (2 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda, a touch of salt).  Whisk together, throw in some blackberries, and VOILA!  Fluffy, delicious pancakes.  Optionally, add some chocolate chips for a just-one-more dessert pancake.  The eggs came from Mt. View Organics at the Phoenixville Farmer’s Market, the flour from the Mill at Anselma, the yogurt from Shellbark Hollow Farm, and the blackberries were hand-picked from a patch of blackberry bushes overflowing with ripe berries at Willow Creek.  The whole thing was topped off with maple syrup from Miller’s Maple.  The best thing about this is that the whole house smelled like fresh pancakes for the rest of the day!

    Ahhhh, so good. I remember making strawberry pancakes and ‘syrup’ with the first strawberries of the season, and they were the ideal meal (I had them for dinner!) Can’t wait for blackberries to come in over here to recreate the magic 🙂
