What's in the market this week?
Fridays are going to be dedicated to looking ahead to what you might find in your farmers markets the coming weekend. So lets take a look. Obviously somethings will vary from market to market but I will try to make it as inclusive as possible.
From Artichokes to zucchini, this is a time of year when there are an abundance of vegetables available at the market, here is the Wisconsin Food Journal list of what's in season.
Artichokes, beans, beets, bitter melon, bok choy, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, corn, cucumbers, dried chiles, fennel, garlic, kohlrabi, mushrooms, okra, onions, peas, potatoes, radishes, salad turnips, sprouts, squash blossoms, summer squash, tomatoes, and zucchini. That's just vegetables, here are some in season fruits: Apricots, blueberries, cherries, currants, juneberries, mulberries, raspberries, and strawberries.
It's seems as though in the middle of July everyone has zucchini, so much so that some are trying to give it away to everyone they see. If you have bumper crop of it here is one very easy and tasty recipe to try.
1 tablespoon Olive oil
1 tablespoon your favorite grilling seasoning
3 zucchini cut length wise about 1/4 inch thick
This could not be easier. Spread the olive oil and seasoning on both sides of the zucchini, toss it on a medium heat grill, 3-4 minutes, turn, 3-4 minutes. Toss on a plate and eat.
Get to the market this weekend!!! Let me know what you find, and what you are doing with it.
