If I had to choose only one it would be the tomato everytime. But I feel strongly that the avocado is the vegetarian's bacon, it makes all other food taste better. :]

Enjoying the fresh asparagus. I tried roasting carrots the other day with the asparagus and cauliflower I was cooking. Definitely something I will do again as both DH and I liked the roasted carrots better than normal cooked carrots.

On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

Bilby, I am sooo jealous of your easy access to custard apples. My experience with them is that they are unbelievable when truly ripe. And the seediness added to the fun for me.

I am truly, deeply passionate about sapodilla. Tastes like brown sugar, but healthy, hydrating and no bad aftertaste in my mouth. Once a year, I order some shipped direct from Florida. It is expensive. Someday I'll move to a tropical fruit wonderland and eat lovelies like custard apples and sapodillas all the time.

I bought some custard apples yesterday. In season, locally grown, 11 for $4 sounded reasonable. Hardly any flesh inside them given the thickness of the skin and then the (admittedly lovely) shiny black seeds. Not sure if I'd be in rush to buy them again...so no second date maybe, though I'd have fond enough memories of the first.

I'm in the middle of a conversation about brussel sprouts in another team :)

My favorite way to eat them is very similar to yours - I blanch them first, and season with butter, mustard powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. No maple syrup, that sounds... intriguing.

Brussels sprouts! I know, they're the black sheep of the vegetable world. I trim them and remove some outer leaves, then cut in half and drizzle with a little EVOO. Salt and pepper to taste. Roast at 400F for 20-40 minutes depending on how brown you like them. Delicious as-is, but sometimes if I have a sweet craving I drizzle a touch of maple syrup over the finished bowl.

I roast cauliflower and onions the same way, with good results. (just no maple syrup...)

baked sweet potatoes are my favorite starch.

also, sweet onion salsa. :)

I eat a lot of salad greens but they don't get me all that excited. Maybe rocket (arugula) is my favourite there.
Ooh, and I grow sprouts and microgreens. My red clover and radish mix is very good! Although, yeah, only in a Best Supporting Actor kind of way.

That is quite a harem of lovelies, Bilby4. I my taste in greens goes toward mescalun though the now ubiquitous 'spring mix' will do.

Store bought even at the co-op is nowhere near what we grow, or our CSA box. I just grew up on bland celery, and so I like it.

Popcorn. That is my true love.

I like store brand plain yellow corn popped in corn oil. I use a heavy pan on our Chambers gas stove. Then I eat it without salt or butter.

Yummy and filling. (It is too a vegetable!)

Depending on where you are in California, I imagine any store bought veggie is almost as good as what you can grow :) I know it took living in central CA for a few years for me to like tomatoes (and DARN am I picky about them now!)

Unfortunately, I just do not live in a good place for growing much of anything - desert, plus, my yard has a lot of mature shade trees. The only sun I get is on my driveway (which makes shoveling snow really easy!)

I confess to liking store bought (in California) celery, but we grew a patch this year, and it was more flavorful. It needs too much water for me to encourage someone in a desert to grow it.

Peas were once my one and only. Today I'm into celery. Too much trouble to grow and a little high maintenance (removing the strings) but very tasty.

I'm on a spinach kick right now. I like a little bit just raw with breakfast, and sauteed some with mushrooms for dinner which was great.
