After the Market – What do we have for supper?

We attend the Osoyoos Market on Main on Saturdays and today was hot, Hot, HOT!!!

We had lots of vendors and there was a lot of produce. We bought some late scapes (for freezing and eating in the middle of the winter), some Peaches and Nectarines and we bought an “Epi” (wheat in French) loaf from the Lake Village Bakery. THe Lake Village Bakery makes all of their wonderful breads from local store ground flour and everything is sourdough. Not all bread is created equal. Sourdough is probably the oldest form of leavened bread and has many, many health benefits. Bread is one of our biggest sources of grains and has a number of healthy benefits. For more information on some of these health benefits, Professor Terry Graham has an article on the University of Guelph’s website. If you don’t live near the Lake Village Bakery, there is a whole website devoted to Sourdough Bread!

Saturdays in Osoyoos are often hot and after having been at the Grand Forks Market the day before, we are quite tired by the time we get home. Cooking a meal is out of the question. We always try to an “Epi” loaf at the market.

Pull Apart EpiWhat we like best about this sourdough bread is you can pull it apart into the perfect sized buns for having with supper and the olives baked in the dough are the perfect complement to any meal.

Our favorite Saturday Night meal?

Chiken, Epi, Blueberry Garlic Jelly  = HeavenA store-bought barbeque chicken, bread and our Blueberry Garlic Jelly!

This condiment jelly can be used everywhere you would cranberry sauce and is especially wonderful with cream or Bree cheese or a cold chicken sandwich!!

We tear off a piece of bread.


Then cut the piece in half.


Is this not great looking bread?

Epi5Next I butter one side and put cream cheese on the other, some people prefer Mayo.

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy I got Love in my tummy!Then the Pièce de résistance -Blueberry Garlic Jelly!!

The taste of this jelly  is unique! The sweetness of blueberries highlights  the distinctive flavor of Russian Red Garlic and the combination complements the chicken.

I like it on the Cream Cheese, hubbie likes his on the butter.Next the sliced chicken, salt, pepper and:

Epi8Almost ready!

The perfect hot summer night supper!

There! The perfect hot summer night supper!

For my second one, I’ll add some potato salad!


About badkowalik

Prepared by hand and cooked in small batches – our preserves are cooked slowly. There is an average of 1.5 pounds of fruit in every 8 oz jar. Not only can you taste the difference – you can see the difference. Beautiful natural color and unmatched textures – that can only be achieved by the patience and experience of the Confiseur (the maker). There is alchemy to what we do. Like fine wines, each season has it’s own specific style. We create preserves with exceptional taste. Capturing these flavors is the craft of our business. Beary Good Stuff is a collection of seasonal, sustainable, artisinally made preserves. The collection is made (in limited quantities) from local fruits using traditional cooking methods. We use the freshest ingredients we can get. The small batch production insures a taste and texture that is unmatched in the commercial market today. The collection includes preserved fruits & vegetables – marmalades, jams, fruit butters & salsas, pickles and gift collections that reflect the bounty of the season and spirit of feasting. Although not necessary yet, we have received a letter from the BC Heath Authority. We submitted a package detailing how and where we made our products, what each recipe contains and how we prepare it. This letter is displayed in our tent at the Farm Market. We have our BC MarketSafe and FoodSafe certifications.
