Cauliflower, Fennel and Leaf Steeping

So, fall showed up. It’s about time.

Seeing corn AND tomatoes at the market in October was just a little too jarring. Now that temps are in the 60s we can turn our attention away from the grill and bring out the soup pots and roasting pans. How perfect, cauliflower is in full bloom now – purple, orange and snowy-white.  As are licorice-flavored fennel bulbs. Here’s a great recipe that brings them both together in a roasting pan. This recipe for sausage and escarole over toast is just the ticket for a late lunch after a brisk fall hike or bike ride.

veggiesIf you’ve yet to spend time at the Leaf of the East tent this season make sure you do that before it gets too cold. Markham Sindeband has a way with Taiwanese tea leaves and is eager to share his wisdom and hot blends.

Please send in your captions to this picture of Jackson in action. Submit your caption(s) to captions@chappaquafarmersmarket.org by next Thursday and we’ll announce the winner of the contest and $20 in market bucks on our facebook page—so make sure to like us if you submit.

Our favorite Vietnamese family is here this week with their spring and summer rolls and all of their relatives. Love them! Also here – Beth Boyland and her lovely farm to table watercolors and photographs.

See you at the market!
