A few things I purchased at Bath Farmers Market & Crystal Spring Farmers Market in Brunswick... a great Farmers Market.
I also go to Brunswick farmers market. I rarely ever shop at supermarkets. I don't like it when food travels it takes away the freshness of specially produce and I don't like using any kind of ingredients that is processed or canned so I make everything from scratch, bottle them and refrigerate them instead of buying them canned from supermarkets or even Natural food markets. I believe it doesn't matter how hard we try, when anything is canned or bottled by a company we must add certain additives to make it last for a while on the shelves so my Kismet Way of food is to be an natural as possible.

Halva is mostly known in the West made with sesame. This is totally different. The ingredients are flour, ghee, syrup made with saffron, rose water, cardamom, sugar. I become creative and add roasted slivered almonds or coconut or blueberries and always ginger, it all depends on my mood and availability. It is very aromatic and tasty, it is best served with tea. Enjoy the photos.

Kismet Inn Maine Picked some garlic scapes from my garden, i.e., Kismet Inn bed and breakfast spa, fried them with a few garlic cloves that I had put in oil, added lima beans, sumac, turmeric, cumin, curry, my own home made tomato paste (I always make everything from scratch) then cooked it in yogurt whey. You will see photos of the yogurt whey if you scroll down they are in jars. I make my own Greek Style yogurt and preserve the yogurt in jars for a week the most add it to different recipes.
