You can find us every Saturday at the Carmel Farmers Market (8-11:30 a.m.) and the Fishers Farmers Market (8 a.m.-noon) through the end of September (with the only exception, the Fishers Farmers Market will be closed on 6/29 for the SPARK! festival)

How-To: Prepare Pinky Links

At the farmers market, we often get asked, "What is a good way to make [fill in the blank...]?".  And while I am certainly not a chef, I have prepared essentially everything that we offer many, many times for my family (liver may the exception to that!) so I try to pass along tips and recipe ideas that will hopefully yield a desirable end-result for our customers to enjoy.  This week, pinky links are on special, so I thought I would share I how typically prepare them. 

1. Place a small amount of water in a skillet (enough to just-cover the bottom) and heat over medium.  Using kitchen shears, cut the links apart and add to the skillet.  Cover with a lid and continuing cooking over medium-heat for about 7-8 minutes.
2. When the links are mostly done, remove lid and drain off any excess water.  Add a small amount of oil and continue cooking for a few minutes, turning the links occasionally, to allow a light golden-brown color to develop.
3. Serve with your favorite breakfast foods...typically eggs and pancakes in our home!  Enjoy!
