market report 09.03.11

It was pouring at the market this morning! And it’s supposed to be crappy all weekend– a good weekend to spend in the kitchen.

The plan:
corn relish
corncob wine (no, really)
Marcella’s tomato sauce (to freeze)
oven-dried tomatoes (with the Juliets)
basil preserved in salt
and I’ll probably end up canning some of those Romas, because that’s a hell of a lot of tomatoes for just sauce.

And then there’s this:

One goes in gin and the other gets bourbon.

    Such beautiful produce! I’ve never heard of preserving basil before, sounds fascinating. I might have to experiment with that since I love basil so much.

    • Of course. Mostly for the boozy stuff, right?

        Oh you know me well. And the basil in salt. And well, everything sounds so good! Why do I never come and visit you? We need to sort that out one of these summers.

        Or you could come here and we could eat fufu and grasscutter.
