Farmers' Market producers prepare for summer

2:50pm Thursday 2nd August 2012

IT seemed as if summer would never come, but as I am writing this we have had barbecues every night for the last week to make the most of the long awaited sunshine. Hereford Farmers’ Market will be bringing barbecues into the heart of the city as part of Tropical Hereford when it sets up the Farmers’ Market Big Beach Barbecue on August 16 and 23. Producers at the market have been putting their mind to some new products and recipes for the summer season. Whyle House Lamb have lamb burgers – something a bit different, made from leg and shoulder meat with no added rusk, just a bit of mint and seasoning – gluten free as an added bonus. They also have something new this year – lamb spare ribs with lots of meat on them and ideal for marinading. Tudge Meats have their ever popular tasty sausages, and one of the Tudge family favourite barbecue recipes is tenderloin and chorizo kebabs (see recipe, right). The wet weather had one positive outcome as Beth, from Beth’s Buns, had become so disheartened by the recent wet weather that she came up with rainbow cake to lift everyone’s spirits. Each colour is baked individually and then sandwiched together to make a fantastically colourful centrepiece for any picnic. Ã Further information at hfmg.org or on Twitter @HFDshireFarmMkt.
