Reason #732

Why I love the farmer's market.




The season's first juicy tomatoes and fiddleheads!

I'd heard of fiddleheads, but hadn't ever seen them before, much less tried them. When they showed up at the market, I figured I had to give them a shot. They'd been pretty expensive until recently, when the maple syrup guys from Vermont, of all vendors, had them cheap, I got a nice little bag for a $1.25.

We had them roasted with olive oil and a bit of sea salt. Then tossed with pasta with other fresh sauteed veggies and local turkey sausage. They tasted a bit like asparagus, and were mighty tasty.

Here's to new delicious local food!
