I went to the Farmer's Market today and thanks to Mary who is giving us all kinds of information on fruits and vegetables I looked at a lot of vegetables that I usually don't look at. I bought a bunch of carrots that were all different colors. I used a red one in my salad today and it added a lot of color. I am going to cook them tomorrow to see if they turn orange or stay whatever color they are. There were even some purple ones.
I also got a pomello which is the original name for grapefruit. This one is pink on the inside and has less acid then regular grapefruit. It is huge. The man who was selling them said that you can candy the grapefruit peel too. I'm not too sure if I'll do that or not.
I got two big onions and made onion soup from the Spark People cookbook and we had fresh corn on the cob with it.
Thanks Mary for turning me on to new vegetables. Keep those interesting stories coming.
