GLENWOOD SPRINGS – We all grew up with the quick snack of a PB&J sandwich, peanut butter and jelly. This week at Glenwood’s Downtown Market you will find the ingredients for some interesting alternatives. The TGC&P – trout, goat cheese and peach – is a great combination. Sink your fork into a bite of smoked trout, a chunk of goat cheese and a slice of fresh peach and enjoy. The GM&P of greens, mustard and pear is another taste adventure. Use the micro greens from Osage gardens, a spicy mix of baby kale, beet greens, collard greens and amaranth. These greens, added to a slice of firm pear and a little pungent mustard, are a treat. Early Morning Farms will have their Klocker pears available this week. They are a large, gnarly shaped, red and green pear grown in the Palisade area for years by a farmer named Mr. Klocker. Maureen “Mo” Maznio sells small $2 sample jars of her sweet mustard that are just right for adding to these bite size snacks. Maznio was given a mustard recipe by a friend’s mother about 25 years ago. She began making it for friends and family as gifts, and they would request more through the year. A friend actually admitted to Maznio that she had once taken a jar out of Maznio’s fridge. Maznio thought there must be something special about this mustard if it caused lovely, honest people to actually take one without asking. Molicious Mustard was born last November, now available for all to try. Mo will be using her mustard in the cooking demonstration this week at 6 p.m. She will be serving Molicious Mustard and pistachio rosemary encrusted beef on a bed of field greens. ( E. Breslin of New Castle shares a booth at the market with Maznio. Breslin has been talking to customers at the market about the health benefits of Juice Plus+ for the past five seasons. Breslin explains that she had a minor health issue, and a friend had told her to try the Juice Plus+. Two months later her problem was gone and her cholesterol went down.The juice is made from fresh high quality fruits and vegetables. It is tested for pesticides, herbicides and other contaminants. The fruits and vegetables are juiced to extract their nutrients and reduced to a powder in a low temperature process to retain the nutrients. Breslin says, “It’s simple, Juice Plus+ bridges the gap between what you should eat and what you actually eat. It makes you glow inside and out.” ( Clifton DeBeque, “The Bloody Mary Emissary,” has joined the market. He exhibits two breeds of Bloody Mary mixes: Rooster Collbran’s Tart & Twangy, with the flavor of dill pickles and lemons, and Rowdy Roubidoux’s Hot & Wild, fueled by habaero, horseradish and wasabi.The colonel’s nonalcoholic Bloody Mary mixes can be a meal in a glass with garnishments of celery, olives, okra, cheese, shrimp, pickles or peppers and a squeeze of lime. DeBeque is enchanted by the Bloody Mary, but he feels that respectable ones are few and far between. He will tell you that his creative conceptions are “perpetual zephyrs of flavor,” and that his “auspiciously delicious elixirs relieve the pains of desperation and mediocrity.” Stop by his booth to try a sample and to be truly entertained. ( Rosario will perform at the market starting at 5:30 p.m. Rosario’s career of more than 25 years in the music industry includes working and recording with Firefall, new age cowboy artist Chuck Pyle and recording artist Michael Johnson. He is an instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, recording artist, performer, producer and teacher. The Rocky Mountain News describes him as a “performer not to miss.” The music sponsor this week is The Springs Theater.Glenwood’s Downtown Market will be bustling every Tuesday through September, from 4 p.m. till dusk at Ninth and Grand Avenue.
