Until September 30th on Saturday is Spenard Farmers Market. Farmers and crafters together making it work in a style that is really awesome. A fun place for those of you in Anchorage to visit!
Alaskans I tell ya “Live for summers fresh veggies”
I know I over indulge in all the greens that I can. The only thing I have never really eaten all my life is peas. Don’t like that mushy taste. Love split pea soup…and I honestly make the world’s best Pea Soup.
A farmer was at his table yesterday and had a bag of what I thought fat green beans but after being told "no those are Sweet Pea’s" with a snicker and quick reply “I don’t like pea’s and I’ll pass on those” but his snapped a pod open for me and offered them to me to sample. Putting a little green ball in my mouth I was expecting the worse but was totally surprised.
I loved them ~ OMG so sweet! I will be making a soup or casserole with them for sure in the next couple of days.
I also got kale, zucchini, plus a bag of potatoes, and a new item to try out zucchini blossoms, along with those sweet peas and kohlrabi; which is a great chopped to add flavor to soups – it is nice fried also.
A healthy stew for you and oh so tasty! Kale Stew:
