I was headed to the Houston airport Friday night to pick-up our Son flying in from Alabama. We experienced a strong storm in the Conroe area around 3pm heading in an easterly direction. By 4:45 pm all flights from the East coast were cancelled. Next chance was 3:30 pm on Saturday. So off to market I went.
Upon arriving at Market Chef Michael Fleshner and Elvis from Peas Farm were offering samples of unique items I and My Wife were not familiar with. Several others were already engaged in this educational opportunity. So My Wife and I joined in. When we were there we learned about Golden Delicious apples, burpless Cucumbers, Tomatillos, & Seedless oranges.
My Wife commented that the Golden Delicious apples were "Wonderful" Chef Michael added ," They do have a sweet Honey flavor and would be an excellent addition to any Apple desert" burpless Cucumbers were crisp tasting and of the pickling variety. The seedless oranges were My Wife's favorite. She asked, "How do I recognize the seedless ones ?" Elvis pointed out," You look for Navel in the description"
Now, Tomatillos were my favorite, they have a tart tomato flavor and make excellent salsa verde. Chef Michael and Elvis had this Tomatillo salsa verde recipe to offer. "Mexican Green salsa is created by roasting several Tomatillos out of their wrappers. In a food blender, blend the roasted Tomatillos with Sour cream, Avocado,Chili peppers , Lime juice, Cilantro and onions. And enjoy with Tortilla Chips.
I made the mistake of not buying any Tomatillos on Saturday and I am regretting it today. I have started to buy the additional ingredients needed for the salsa and will share it soon. After a quick weekend visit we have sent Our son back to Alabama via North Carolina just south of the 18 inches of snow that fell in the higher altitudes of Pennsylvania. He just sent a text to say,"The big metal Bird has landed in Birmingham, Alabama."
