More late summer bounty today. There are still lots of tomatoes and peppers on offer. Michele of K.M.K. brought some green ones this week after I asked after them last week. I’m looking forward to some fried green tomatoes.
I picked up some of these gold ones from Il Giardino Organico for a change of pace.
Eggplant too, aplenty. It’s one of the prettiest vegetables; I should really try harder to like it.
These were on K.M.K. Farms’ table. Michele also has an all-white one that she often gets asked about while I’m standing there picking out my whatever. She describes it as having a mushroom-like flavor. Every time I hear that I think, “Ah, a vegetable I don’t like very well with the flavor of another vegetable I’m not particularly fond of.” But I should just buy some and try it – be open-minded about it. Maybe it’ll be the eggplant epiphany I didn’t know I’d been waiting for.
Moa’s Farm had bitter melon – it’s the bumpy looking vegetable in the middle. That’s another thing I should undertake one of these days – I have tons of recipes for it in my copious selection of Indian cookbooks – I should buy a couple and try out a recipe for it that sounds good.
