Here’s the winning recipe from 2013!

Grandmom O’Brien’s Rhubarb Custard Pie

Ingredients

Two-Crust Pastry (top crust can be made lattice style)

2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, cold and cubed
5-6 tablespoons cold water
Filling
2 eggs, beaten slightly
1 tablespoons milk
4 cups pink rhubarb, cut-up
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon butter

Directions

Pre heat oven to 425 degrees.

Pastry
Measure flour and salt into bowl food processor. Cut in cubed butter. Slowly pour in very cold water. Continue to pulse until dough is moistened. Divide dough in
half. Refrigerate. Make filling then roll out 1 top and 1 bottom crust.

Filling
Mix together eggs and milk. Set aside. (I’ve adapted this recipe and microwave the fresh rhubarb for about 3 minutes.) Add to the rhubarb the sugar,
flour and nutmeg. Mix. Then stir in the egg mixture and stir together. Roll out chilled pie crust and pour into prepared pastry. Dot mixture with butter before putting on top crust.

Seal top crust to bottom by moistening rim of bottom crust with water. Press crust together by pinching around the edge. Trim edges. Cut vent holes into the top crust. Brush milk or cream onto the top crust and sprinkle with sugar. (I do this for both a flat and lattice crust.) Reduce oven temperature to 375 and bake for approximately 40 – 50 minutes.

The Douglas Farmers Market Seeks Vendors!

Do you grow it, make it, or bake it?

The Douglas Farmers Market is a wonderful weekly farmers market held on the grounds of the historic E.N. Jenckes Store in downtown Douglas. Our 2015 Season is already shaping up quite nicely. We are excited to welcome back the amazing organic produce from Potter Hill Farm. We will have a weekly honey vendor, maple syrup, and hand made soaps. And new this year we are so excited to welcome a local cheese vendor and a new artisan bread maker. In addition we will have many occaisional vendors supplying us with items such as seedlings, blueberries, fresh eggs and artisan crafts. We are still welcoming new weekly or occasional vendors. If you grow it, make it or bake it, we would love to have you. This year will open with our annual Rhubarb Challenge. A not to be missed local event for sure. The market will be open every Saturday morning from 9-12 through September. We will be featuring other special events throughout the summer including our Dog Day event, Honey Bee Day, Artisan Day and Recycling Day. The Market will also be home to our famous Lemonade stand that we loan out to local non-profit organizations to raise money for their causes. The Douglas Farmers Market is an all around great place to drop by and wallow in the moment. Be a part of the local food movement by making a stop at the Douglas Farmers Market part of your weekly summer routine.

We are currently accepting applications for vendors for the 2015 season.

Space is limited. Reserve your space today.
