millions of (redhaven) peaches. peaches for me (and ginger and thyme).
arcade bakery becoming a focal point of interest of ours. some may say an addiction. and with hazelnut-chocolate vienois like this, itz hard to NOT have one.
gloria peaches, from toigo orchards. not quite there for canning but damn close
gewurtztraminer grapes at the @bkgreenmarkets in McCarren Park. like their namesake, sweet, spicy, and mildly tannic.
and so the planning begins. next pop up is 30 September. event details to be announced soon, but mark your calendars….
papalo, related to the daisy family, is pretty much crack for me. best on tacos, its high collections of essential oils make it comparable to a cross of cilantro, rue, and wild arugula. more steely and refreshing, succulent rather than spicy.
so we use ball pint jars at Diaspora for bulk jams for baked goods and the like, but after were through we can’t re-use the lids for canning — the sealant is one-time use. so instead, we’re turning our empty jars into awesome portable drinking jars! soon to be on sale on the web store, they’re awesome for all your drinking needs (and make an awesome cocktail shaker in a pinch). stainless steel straws are easy to clean and lids are BPA free! #upcycling #standbythejams #captainplanetwouldtotesbeproud
market lunch: crottin from Valley Shephard Creamery, Early Zee peaches from Toigo Orchards, Bread Alone demi baguette with salt and cayenne.
and so it begins again. at the Greenpoint-McCarren Park Greenmarket, where Meynard Orchards is bringing in their first rounds of summer stone fruit.
happy 4th of july from Diaspora, where processing our #csa and making Strawberry-Rhubarb Streusel cake have been our activites of the day.
