Farmers Market Update: yesterday I managed to get down to Copley’s Farmers Market to peruse the wares. A new item to hit the market: hakurei turnips (asian salad radishes is what one vendor called them).
If you haven’t had them, try them. They are sweet, mild and radishy, and the greens are spicy and delish. I expect to see them soon from the Red Fire Farm CSA. Also new to the market this week: a lot of people are selling cilantro now.
Moving on… last night we had a more southern style meal. Now sure why, I think it was the collards that made us feel more in that food genre. I began preparing dinner the night before by soaking beans.
We had a very nice dinner together out on our porch, and dinner was very tasty. A lovely evening.
