2015 Harvest Fest



Common questions I get at the Lake Superior Harvest Festival (this Saturday at Bayfront Park in Duluth, 10 am – 4 pm) include “What is celeriac?” “What do you do with eggplant?” “What are poblano peppers?” and so forth. To make things easier this year, I thought I’d post a few recommended recipes here to point folks to.

Creamy Celeriac Soup

Roasted Celery Root, Red Onions, Mushrooms, and Sage

Creamy Baked Leeks

Roasted Poblano Salsa

Roasted Jalapeno Poppers

Baba Ganouj (Eggplant Dip)

Roasted Beet Pesto

Cayenne Pepper Recipe Collection

It’s the 21st annual showcase of the Lake Superior Sustainable Farming Association, and the crew from Stone’s Throw Farm will be at the farmers market from 10 am-4 pm selling produce. This year, the festivities run into the evening as well thanks to a collaboration with the Twin Ports Bridge Festival. Parking is free from 10-4, too.

If you can’t make it to the event, get that festival feeling by viewing photos from last year’s fest, all by Michael K. Anderson, our friendly neighborhood photographer.
