Roamed by the farmer’s market the other day and had to stop when I saw all the great looking heirloom tomatoes. These guys were awesome. I knew I wouldn’t be leaving without some. I had to pick, though, and that was the hardest part. The one I really wanted was the big orange one behind the the large group of smaller red guys on the right (not in the basket). But first I had to take it to the scale…1.8 pounds. WHOA! Ok, I was not going to pay over $7 for 1 tomato. I grabbed various colors of the smaller guys.
Then, next to them were some eggplant I’d never seen before, Fairy Tale Eggplant. I was told to slice them longways and grill (can’t have a BBQ at my place) or pan sear/cook them. They had a nice flavor to them, different than a normal eggplant — a bit sweet — and just so fun.
Love the farmer’s market!
