On Monday, I found these guinea-hen eggs from Zebra Truck Farm at New Leaf Market. I love their triangular shape and deeply pored texture.
We participated in Zebra Truck Farm's CSA program before owners Kevin and Penny Orr switched to having a table at the Saturday Downtown Farmer's Market.
Twice this week at New Leaf Market, I stood in line behind someone holding a liter of raw milk from local Kurtz and Sons dairy.
On a family walk after dinner yesterday, Matt spotted ripe blackberries! I didn't know that this is blackberry season in our area. Anybody know a good place for gathering blackberries?
The Grower's Market at Lake Ella was alive on Wednesday. FSU students took film footage for a vegetarian documentary. Keith Baxter (Kool Beanz Cafe) gave a cooking demonstration. Offerings at the market included sorrel (sold with recipes!), fava beans, red mustard, multi-colored beets, many kinds of lettuces, brussels sprouts, scallions, spring bulb onions, garlic heads, lettuces, chard, kale, rainbow bunches of radishes, hakurei salad turnips, shitake mushrooms, honey, fresh cut flowers, potted herbs, organic sauerkrauts and sprouted hummus.
Holy Cow, Tupelo!
I'm looking forward the Slow Food Tallahassee potluck this weekend. A taste of tupelo honey and a glass of Kurtz and Sons milk this week was an experience heightened to divinity with the addition of cream and vanilla beans. This tupelo-honeycomb candy (sometimes called cinder-toffee) will gild the local lilly.
Meanwhile, Matt will be keeping order at the National Homebrew Competition (1st round regional judging). We'll be missing the Mayhaw Festival in Colquitt, Georgia. I keep hoping to find some Mayhaw Jelly. It seems to be in abundant supply when I'm not looking for it. Any tips on where in/near Tallahassee I can find some Mayhaw Jelly?
