While waiting for the donuts for sale I walked around the farmers market and ate my share of peaches. It's amazing how many varieties of peaches are out there. When going to the market tell the farmer what you are doing with the peaches. Canning, pie, just eating.. Some are sweeter, some are for baking where they dont turn to mush (just like apples). Here are a few recipes for the fuzzy fruit.
Oak Park. IL Saturday Farmers Market
Every Saturday in the summer the basement of the Pilgrim Church on Lake becomes a whirl wind of activity. The church rotates the use of the kitchen every week but the product is the same.. Some of the best donuts around. Hot and light with a little bit of a spice. They serve 3 varieties. Plain, Powdered and Cinnamon. You line up to indulge in the little cake donuts. They are only .75 cents! When I arrived at 6:30 they were just setting up the chairs for the "donut club" to sit with their weekly donut and coffee. I was the 4th in line. At 7am about 70 people had arrived. They at first did not have the plain. The lady in front of me wanted 4 dozen plain. She was set aside and the line started to move again. The donuts are shoved out in big tubs that hold about 10 dozen. The kitchen is below street level so they use a window to serve them through. I will return!
Tomorrow I am off to see what the fuss about is at the Donut Vault!
