I finally was able to make it back to the farmer’s market. I know some of you mentioned that the foods I chose last time weren’t all that unusual, but bear with me, I’m just trying to ease into this a little bit. The foods below are definitely much weirder:
Food 1: Pamelo
I’d never seen nor heard of these fruits before. Pamelos are basically giant sweet grapefruits with really thick skin. Pretty tasty though. They’re good to try if you don’t like the bitterness of grapefruits.
Food 2: Romanesco Cauliflower
These vegetables, although weird looking, behave exactly like cauliflower in texture and more or less in taste. I actually like the taste of these better than regular cauliflower, although I can’t quite put my finger on why…I think mainly because they are a little more tender. Pretty amazing that nature can make something so cool looking and delicious. I incorporated these into a recipe that I’ll post in the next few days, but if you get your hands on these, you can pretty much sub them in for regular cauliflower in any recipe or just roast them in the oven.
