Know what I love about Seattle? Having access to farm fresh food. The world is really our oyster here. Last month, I attended IFBC (that’s the International Food Bloggers Conference in case you’re wondering) and reunited with the fabulous folks at Farmstr.

Farmstr is an online marketplace that helps people like you and I find and buy direct from local, sustainable farmers. By removing warehousing, inventory, store shelves and expensive delivery trucks – the prices are often less than you’d find at a store or farmer’s market – and the farmers keep more of the profit. Our goal is to help local farmers succeed – specifically those with organic quality and better practices/food. Our goal is to help consumers have unlimited access to clean sustainable local food at fair prices.

The latest awesome thing to happen at Farmstr? Farmstr’s just launched [free for now] DELIVERY service. We deliver on Wed and Fri in SEA and Redmond (Customers must order food on one of those days, to one of two partner sites – Essential Bakery Cafe Wallingford OR KIS Organics in Redmond). Awesome right? You can save $10 off your order of local produce with the Farmstr code: MAVEN10

You’ll want to sign up for the Farmstr newsletter to learn about new local farmers, in season food for sale – their go to place to buy local grass-fed beef direct from producers.)

Stuffed and Baked Apples

Ingredients:
6 Elstar apples, or other apples of your choice
2 tbsp apple cider
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 broken pecan pieces
2 tbsp honey
2 graham crackers, broken into pieces
1/3 cup water
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl mix together the apple cider, raisins, pecans honey with a spoon. Break up the graham crackers by hand or with a rolling pin in a plastic bag. Mix the broken crackers with the fruit and nut mixture. Set the bowl aside.

Cut about a 1/2-inch slice off the top of each apple. (You can either snack on the apple tops or give them to your chickens) Scoop out the seeds and core of the apple with a melon-baller or spoon to make a little pocket and pack the fruit mixture into the apples. Top each apple with a slice of the butter. Poke a cinnamon stick into the center of the filling, so it looks like a stem. Place the stuffed apples snugly in a oven-proof baking dish and carefully add 1/3 cup water to the pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until the apples are soft and the tops are slightly browned. Don’t bake too long or your apples will explode in your dish (still tasty, but messy). Allow apples to cool before serving.
