Saturday Smiles: The Santa Barbara Farmers Market 4/14/18

We have a beautiful clear day this morning.  And we are expecting a high of 76.  Little gems lettuce abounds (pictured above) along with mustard greens and leeks.  They make a perfect two person small salad.

We use scallions often.  They are one of the must have ingredients when you make a Chinese style dish.  We often make kung-pao chicken, and they are used for the chicken marinade, as well as a garnish when the dish is done.

Spring garlic is the mild version of garlic.  Unlike its later incarnation, it has a mild flavor some say akin to onions or leeks. We love its burgundy color.

We could not resist sharing these cauliflowers with you again...the color alone made us smile.

And last but no least, we keep a supply of fresh shallots on hand.  We use them to flavor sauces, they have a mild delicate onion flavor, and they usually melt into the sauce when cooked for a long time.

 

Wishing you an abundance of Saturday Smiles,

Cheers,

Ron & Alexandra

It all looks wonderful.  Scallions are among my favorite foods and I often snack on them (as long as I'm not meeting customers later in the day).

Good morning Ron and Alexandra Seigel ,
Your makret pictures always make me anxious for our own Farmer's Market to begin.  I love supporting the local farmers.  I was introduced to a new grocery store in Spokane, Washington called My Fresh Basket.  Their fruit and produce displays were amazing.  Wish I'd taken some pictures.  They won a Progressive Grocer Overall Outstanding New Concept award for 2018.

Gabe Sanders As a child, it was one of my favorite foods along with salami and bananas.    I still love them, and use them in our cooking.  A

Endre Barath, Jr. we both love leeks and roasted ones sounds great.  I love how they melt in a sauce and add that pop of flavor.  A

I always enjoy your visits to the farmers' market.

We also had a beautiful Saturday in Maryland...in the '80's.

It is chilly again today and we expect a lot of rain the the area.

Love the cauliflower, Alexandra - gorgeous shots of everything!

I also use shallots to flavor sauces - a dab of demi glace, a little red wine and finely minced shallots is my favorite!

Hope you have a fantastic week ahead!
