Delicious Dessert Recipes with Locally Sourced Ingredients
Pick up local fruits and dairy products, and let the baking commence.
Fruits, vegetables, and meats may be the first things that come to mind when we think of locally sourced farm-to-table foods, but desserts can be whipped up just as easily with seasonal, regional ingredients. The USDA’s National Farmers Market Directory lists more than 8,000 venues, so it’s easy for shoppers everywhere to pick up local produce and farm-fresh dairy products. Next time you hit the farmers market by your house, try looking for eggs, milk, and flour, then see how much better these dessert recipes taste when they’re filled with ingredients grown by your friends and neighbors.
