First Veggies of the Season

Rebecca was up bright and early Saturday, to get the best vegetables from our CSA at the Forest Hill Park farmer's market. It's good to be back in the veggies!

French breakfast radishes? Expliquez, s'il vous plait!

Rebecca said...

Our CSA grows two types - the breakfast radishes which are longer and a little bit milder and then a variety called Easter egg radishes, which are the standard looking kind, but which come in red, pink and white. The French apparently love radishes.

What is raab? How does one consume it? What are you going to make with all this yummy veg? On a scale from zero to ten how jealous am I of your CSA?

Thalia said...

Personally, I'm at 11 on that scale. It all looks SO GOOD.

"Raab" is the same as "rabe", "rapini", and "broccoli rabe". It's a green; typically Rebecca saut├ęs it in olive oil with garlic (although she possibly has exotic other uses too.)
