This Week’s Harvest, 5/25, plus Bonus Kitchen Sneak Preview

May 25, 2011

lettuce, cucumber, spring onions, spinach, eggs, cherries, artichokes

Oh, goody!  Cherries! And artichokes!  And Spring onions!  And cucumber!  And more lettuce

Considering I ate about a third of the cherries while I was setting up and taking this picture, I have a pretty good idea what’s going to happen to the rest of them.  Although if any make it through the night, I’d love to make a clafoutis.

Since this is the icky kind of cucumber, I’ll be pickling it.  Mmm, pickles.

I’m thinking those spring onions would be great on the grill.  With a quesadilla.

To quote my friend Melissa, “Just a simple steamed artichoke with a salad is a great dinner.  With garlic butter.  Or aioli.  Artichokes with aioli…”

Eggs.  Spinach.  Frittata.

    Oh I’d love to see a post on what you do with the artichokes. I’ve never cooked them at home, and find them intimidating. These specimens look magnificent.

    Louise – Don’t they? I usually just cook them, whole, in boiling water for about 30-40 minutes, then pull the leaves off and dip them in mayonnaise or melted butter. But I think your question may have inspired a friend of mine to write an artichoke tutorial, so I’ll keep you posted!

    Update: While I can’t necessarily call her a close, personal friend, Dorie Greenspan wrote a wonderful article about artichokes last March.
