If you weren’t at Town and Country…
We had a wonderful opening market yesterday! It was lovely to see everyone again and to be back at Town and Country. If you weren’t able to make it, here is a little of what you missed. Make sure to come early next week, since even I got there too late to get a photo of the huckleberries.
Kohlrabi cracks me up. It looks like it came from outer space. I think its weird appearance scares some off, but give it a try if you haven’t already. You can eat it raw (peeled and sliced like an apple), or roast it the same as any root vegetable. Or you can puree it, something I haven’t tried yet, but plan to soon. Just peel, slice and boil in salted water for about 15 minutes, or until soft. Add some onion and garlic that have been sautéd in a pan with a little olive oil. Combine with a little light cream and puree until smooth, adding salt and pepper to taste. Or, if you really want to see someone light up at the mention of it, ask Chef Payton Curry about kohlrabi and if you can slice it on a mandolin.

These cute little Seckel sugar pears are going in Aidan’s lunch. He loves these almost as much as Crimson Gold apples. I am loving the thought of making a pear tart with them, maybe with a little gorgonzola cheese, some fresh thyme and a touch of our honey. Oh – I am loving that fall is here.
