In her column “Kids in the Kitchen” in the fall issue of The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener, Roberta Bailey writes about past Common Ground Country Fair times with her kids. “When they were young, for a few years we did a Country Kitchen demo together called Kids in the Kitchen. We made bumps on a log and scrambled eggs and tiger candy – sweetened peanut butter balls with dried fruit and coconut, all rolled in carob powder. When they were a bit older, we had a booth in the farmers’ market called the Kids and Moms booth. We shared it with another mom and their two friends. The moms sold fiber art and the kids sold gourds, clothespin dolls, corn necklaces, cutting boards and a score of odd inspirations.” Bailey shares recipes from that time in her column. Enjoy!
