A Fresh Dille

a farmer’s market fourth.

Posted in FOOD by clairedille on July 5, 2008

The trip to the market was another success. After going to the market many times with ideas of what produce I wanted for recipes that week, I have been let down. This time I went to find what looked best. The Chioggia (or candy cane) bright red beets below the usual purple beets will be beautiful served sliced in a salad. They will be wrapped in tin foil and then baked at 400 degrees for about an hour, until tender. I will probably create a nice dressing with fresh squeezed orange juice, vinegar, and olive oil. Shallots would be a great addition as well as avocado and orange segments. After reading in Body + Soul Magazine that the key to finding the best beets was by picking the ones with the best greens, I was convinced.

I strangely adore fava beans. I blame this on my british father.

There were petite bunches of radishes.

The pattypan squash are growing in size as the season develops.

.time to get cooking.
