Yesterday afternoon Jason and I visited the farmer's market again. He chose the bagels since he eats most of them and I visited my favorite new vendor. This time I took a picture of the most unfamiliar produce so that I can plan recipes with which to use them. Those mustard greens look quite different from the ones Grandma always grew and the amaranth and water spinach are unfamiliar as well. The cheese lady finally had her promised bacon and I was pleased to see fresh potatoes among the FM offerings as well. Grandpa used to grow potatoes and I didn't realize how much I missed having freshly dug ones, yum!
A fellow plurker offered up her dill and cheddar beer bread recipe yesterday morning and having had dill in the fridge already I snagged some cheddar from the cheese lady and whipped up a loaf to go with dinner. For dinner we had FM beets, FM greens, FM onions with smoked wild salmon and a dill/horseradish creme fraiche. Jason has to grate the horseradish for me as it stings my eyes so badly I can't see within seconds. It's tough even to scrape it off the board and stir in it, but gosh does it taste good, yum!
Yesterday morning I got Revontuli off the needles and put it to soak while we went to the farmer's market. Once I had the bread in the oven I spent some time setting it up on the blocking board. I love how this pattern shows off the long color repeats!
