Week two: greens mostly

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

I picked up the share early Saturday morning. A very atmospheric scene with threatening weather and Boulder Creek very high.

  1. A big bag of mixed salad greens.
  2. An equal amount of beautiful spinach.
  3. More killer turnips, very small ones this time.
  4. Radishes! Small and luminously beautiful, they are already gone but were indescribably delicious.
  5. My lagniappe: snap peas. As sweet as candy, only a few made it into a salad – the rest were devoured immediately.

Nothing fancy this week, there is a wedding to contend with! I imagine all of this will end up in salads, but we might have to fob off some of the greens to unsuspecting relatives to avoid waste.

New magazine. Edible Front Range. Smashed radishes.

I recently received a copy of Edible Front Range, the latest locally focused magazine in the Edible Communities line-up. This is great writing about our local Colorado food scene, and we are lucky to have it.  In a great article about spring vegetables, Lynn Eppel offers a simple but compelling recipe for Smashed Radishes. With almost perfect timing, Abbondanza Organic Seeds & Produce brought gorgeous Pink Beauty radishes to the market. I made this recipe, with minor variations, and served it to great effect with burgers on the grill.
