The light was just right for some luscious photos at the farmer’s market just up the block. The central market day here is Saturday, but there’s a mini one that travels around to parks and public spots on Wednesday.
Those on top are kohlrabi, which tastes kind of like broccoli stems. It’s good in a soup or slaw, or try it pureed from Farmgirl Fare’s recipe. I maintain, slaw is the new salad. A fitting one for Chicagoans, you can also put on hot dog. Then there’s the slaco.
These beauties are honeycrisps.
And galas. They stir up a memory of a perfect day last October, one of food’s bewitching abilities. A sapphire blue sky, a college football game decided in the last seconds, a stop at a farm orchard where we were the only pickers, so we told really stupid stories real loud.
Here they are. Good for southern Texas style salsa.
