We were Santa Monica farmers market bound today and since winter is usually bland I wasn’t taking any pics until I ran into this this thing so I started with the food pics….
Having no idea what it was, I bought some. Wikipedia and several sites have cleared up my lack of knowledge…Mountain yams are a Asian tuber that turn into goo if you grate and get mucilaginous plus have an itchy skin that needs soaked in water and vinegar to neutralize…sounds like a winner here :-p
Sun chokes have been about for a month or so but few in attendance this week–one vendor said the ground was too frozen to harvest
Unhusked walnuts which I haven’t seen in person since I used to have to collect them from my grandpas yard
Mushrooms! Including white truffle which I passed on hoping for black truffle soon…but I picked up some hedgehogs
My favorite cheese vendor provided me with a raw 1year aged white cheddar
Jim found giant macaron that are gluten free at the newly opened Lemonade
And I picked up the foodies coloring book at Barnes and noble!
