Could I really call myself a photographer if I didn’t share some pics of our incredible garden-inspired meal? Ryan and I visited the Granville Farmers Market early this morning upon the recommendation of one of our clients. We hit the jackpot! I even found & purchased some sweet corn that was raised back home on Witten Farms (which I rode by every day on my way to school). We also came across some snap beans in colors I’d never seen before. I taste tested each one (though I had to spit out the red in it’s raw form). Just like we were told, as soon as I cooked these the color disappeared and you couldn’t which beans were “born” green and which were once red or purple.
And, even though I got the rhubarb last weekend from a produce stand in my neighborhood, I had to share what came of it. John (the elderly man working the stand) gave me about 5 stalks of rhubarb for free. He wanted me to try and make a sweet sauce to spread on toast or pour over ice cream. I thought it would taste, well, like rhubarb, but liked it so much that I actually folded it into my ice cream as opposed to just drizzling on top. YUM!
The market operates each Saturday through October so make it out if you get a chance. And if you’d like to know how I made any of the food featured above, just leave a comment here on the blog and I can include the recipe.
ps. no color enhancements were made to any of these images…that’s just how lovely the food was!
