Vote Red Barn Bakery in 2012!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a very happy new year! After an amazing 2011 in our Irvington location, Red Barn Bakery is looking forward to what 2012 has in store. As we look towards the future, we ask you, our faithful customers, to consider Red Barn Bakery when you cast your ballot for Westchester Magazine’s Best of Westchester 2012. (You can cast your ballot by clicking here) We were honored to win Best Breakfast Cookie in 2011 and would be excited to be nominated for an award again in 2012.

As you get ready to vote, remember some of our delicious seasonal organic delights that you may have sampled over the last year. Spring brought us rhubarb treats like strawberry rhubarb pie and lemon poppy rhubarb muffins. The early summer months graced us with berries galore; blueberry, blueberry peach, and apple strawberry oven fresh gallets and pies made our mouths water. Late summer and early fall brought pies full of  juicy plump plums. Fall followed with figs found in our very own version of a fig newton.

Of course, we can’t forget our tried and true year round options! The Sayulita Breakfast Cookie, which put Red Barn Bakery on the map, is always available in both regular and gluten-free versions in the store.  We also carry Chocolate Chip Cookies, Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies, Almond Biscotti, Coconut Dream Macaroons, Chocolate Chunk Scones, Gluten Free Morning Glory Muffins, and Flourless Chocolate Cakes which are available in both individual and large sizes. And all of it is organic!

The bakery isn’t all about sweet treats, we have a savory side too! Ramps, Swiss Chard, Mushroom, Spinach, Roasted Beet, and even Heirloom Tomatoes filled our peppered pie crusts for savory tarts. These created a delicious alternative to dinner for many of our customers, not to mention a creative option when your aren’t sure what to bring to a dinner party.

If you are looking for something for breakfast or lunch we do have vegetable fritatas available during the day, as well as an assortment of organic soups like our rich, creamy, Carrot Ginger soup. Call a head to see what is cooking up in our kitchen!

Again, we want to thank you for a successful 2011, and will continue to be the best in Westchester for all of your bakery needs!

Everything is Peachy Keen at Red Barn Bakery!

Peach season is in full swing at Red Barn Bakery. What is so great about a peach you may ask? Well let me tell you….

Peaches are actually native to China, and were brought to Europe by Alexander the Great after he conqured Persia. US farmers did not start producing Peaches comerically untill the 19th century. Peaches are highly perishable and can easily spoil. The fruit has a yellowish or white flesh with a velvety skin. Nectarines, the cultivated version of peaches, have a smooth skin. They are often refered to a “shaved peach” or a “fuzz-less peach”. Peaches and nectraines, along with cherries, plums, and apricots, are known as stone fruits due to their single large center seed. Peaches actually come in two varieties, clingstone and freestone. The clingstone peaches actually have the flesh attached to the stone seed, the freestone peach flesh easily separates from the stone.

Peaches have been known to make your skin healthy and add color to your complexion. Peaches are rich in Vitamin A, which may help in cancer prevention. Peaches are 80% water and a good source of dietary fiber (on average 3g), which make them a benefit for those trying to loose weight.

We have lots of delicious ways to serve peaches; try a Peach Scone, Peach Pie and Galettes, or a Peach Crumb Muffin! Stop by and pick up some delicious peach items today!

We’ve Got the Beet

One of the most beautiful and delicious savory tarts Randell makes down at Red Barn Bakery is the Roasted Beet Savory.

Garden beets, the common red root most of us know and love, can be cooked or left cold for salads. Beets are a popular vegetable for pickling. Of course, in Eastern European countires, beets are used in borsch, a cold beet soup,which is incredibly popular.

The beet has been cultivated since ancient times. It has been documented in Babylonia in during the 8th century BC and as far east as China by 840 AD. By the 19th Century, beets became commercially important, specifically the sugar beet, as an alternative to tropical sugar cane as a source of sucrose.

Beets are not only high in antioxidants, but contain a very unusual mix of antioxidants including, beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, vitamin C, and manganese. Beets have incredible anti-inflammatory properties and are an important vegetable to include in a detoxification program due to their betalin pigments.

Stop in and try a Roasted Beet Tart for yourself this weekend. You will not be disappointed!
