After going to a local Farm Market store, I came home with a 2 lb. roll of Amish butter, a half-gallon of organic cream (for $2!), 10 lbs. of apricots, organic local sweet corn, and other goodies. When I decided to bake something to use up some of these ingredients, I came across this recipe for apricot honey almond tart. An interesting side note: The cream that we bought may have come from cows fed from the land that we live on. Nine acres of this land are leased to an organic dairy farmer (he is currently growing alfalfa and oats here) to grow feed for his cattle. He is a producer for Organic Valley, which is the brand of cream that we bought. Cool, huh?
Wow, I started to blog about my yummy, lightly sweet dessert, but I ended up on a ramble about food sources, attachment parenting, and my five-year (or so) plan. It really is all connected somehow, no?
