Thread: Farmers' Market Haul!

    Default Farmers' Market Haul!

    Lin and I went to the Auburn farmers' market today, and came away with lots
    of good stuff: an ambrosia melon, an Israeli Ogen melon, a couple pounds of
    white peaches, a couple pounds of yellow peaches, a couple pounds of
    tomatillos, a dozen medium farm-fresh eggs, a couple pounds of assorted
    heirloom tomatoes, and some seafood: halibut, scallops, and king salmon.

    I really don't know what I was thinking buying those melons: We already had
    a cantaloupe, a honeydew, and a watermelon at home, and chances are good
    we'll get another melon in our CSA box on Tuesday. [Edit: OK, I just ate
    half the cantaloupe with blueberries and yogurt. So maybe we *can* work our
    way through all these melons.]

    I'd planned to make enchiladas tonight, but that'll have to wait. Instead
    we're going to have halibut with salsa verde, green beans with lemon and
    pumpkin-seed oil, and another of the "101 Summer Salads": "Cube watermelon
    and combine with tomato chunks, basil and basic vinaigrette."

    The salmon will be turned into that recipe we made for Memorial Day, the
    soy-cured salmon with Asian pear and cilantro creme fraiche. We don't know
    exactly what we're going to do with the scallops. Maybe we'll grill them
    with some of the peaches. I haven't tried the peaches yet, but Lin tried one
    and said it was mealy.[1] Grilling should be an improvement. Hmmm.... or
    maybe broiling with a lime-molasses glaze; I wouldn't have to worry about
    sticking if it was broiled.

    Bob
    [1] This really sucks, because in past years that farmer has offered the
    BEST peaches. Oh well.

    For me, it's Soulard's Farmer's market in StL. Better prices on better
    produce than the grocers. $15 brings back so much good food. No salt,
    no SMG, no preservatives, much healthier.

    And so flavorful, to boot.

    Bob,
    This is from the August 2009 issue of Gourmet.
    http://www.epicurious.com/tools/sear...&type=advanced It
    is so beautiful and looks like it would be wonderful with ANY peaches!
    The recipe is quite simple it uses the broiler. Good luck!
