And now for something completely different… Cast-Iron Dutch Ovens and Charcoal

Click on the logo to go to Robert's Site

This Saturday, December 5th from 11 am till 1 pm, Gossetts Farm Market is pleased to present Robert Burke, adirondack native and an outdoor river adventure guide for 30 years. Robert is the founder of Adirondack River Outfitters. Robert is going to teach you how to use cast-iron dutch ovens over charcoal. These dutch ovens are adaptable to economical cooking on your back porch and produce excellent flavor! Equally conducive to river or horseback adventure trips, you can cook fish/meats, vegetables, casseroles, stew, chili, rice, or even apple crisp. Robert and Heather Katonah Green’s Heather Flournoy are going to make vegetable enchiladas and a seasonal dessert. Come have fun, learn how to use your own dutch oven and cook up some seasonal produce.

Don’t forget that the market is INSIDE from now till March. The Christmas decorations are hung, the wood burning stove is fired up and, while the weather outside may turn frightful, inside Gossetts Farm Market its always delightful! See you Saturday!
