Eat– for Good Health

Today I headed to the farmers’ market and picked up some fun new items. Rainier cherries are a hybrid between the Bing and Van.  This blush colored variety is sweet and delicious served in salads. rainier-cherry-photo Watermelon radishes are pale green on the outside and deep fucsia in the middle.  My friend Mary Alice pickles them. pickled_watermelon_radish Fiddlehead ferns are the coiled fern fronds that have a crunch texture and fresh, earthy flavor. Remove the papery husks, rinse them and boil for ten minutes.  After that, saute’ with olive oil and seasonings. fiddlehead fern

    Fiddleheads lend themselves to many of the same preparations as asparagus, Reba, according to Martha Stewart. They also make good hors d’oeuvres served in a vinaigrette.

    Watermelon radishes are super good when you slice them paper-thin. The French do this with radishes in general.

    Ha ha, Dash. Nobody said anything about ice cream. However, I have to say, there’s something to be said for fresh peach or cherry ice cream!
