It’s very challenging to keep my hoarder instincts in check when the market is so full with the last of what the season has to offer. Lots of Cabbage in many colors and textures, vibrant cauliflower, broccoli, apples galore, black walnuts in their green and inky brown shells and surprising holdovers like a table full of heirloom tomatoes. My favorite this week were the brussels sprouts, almost every farmer had piles of brussels sprouts on the stock or bins of loose ones. The heirloom carrots look amazing and have become one of my favorite root vegetables to cook since I discovered how delicious they are roasted then tossed with lemon juice and some roughly ground roasted cumin seed and salt. The best, and so simple.
