So many varieties of heirloom apples

  • November 10, 2017

Since it's apple (and pear) season, now's the time to try heirloom apple varieties. Like an heirloom watch, an heirloom apple is just as good as it was decades, if not centuries, ago. The most popular apples, such as red…

Concord grapes at a farmers’ market

  • October 14, 2017

Loved these concord grapes (with seeds) at a local farmer's market. During my processed-food youth, I really only new grapes as being the ingredient for grape juice. I never actually tasted concord grapes. So whether this was the first time…

Medjool dates as tapas

Barcelona wine bar serves roasted dates as a tapas. The dates were prepared with pistachios and possibly olive oil. I declined the valdeon (blue cheese).  Roasting was not necessary. I think the oil and pistachios would suffice. I like the idea of…

Love these small yellow mangoes that have more names than a wanted criminal. The latest name is 'champagne' mango. They used to be called the ataulfo mango, named after the Mexican farmer who found the first. You can peel them…
