Crosnes, Native Oyster Mushrooms & Bora King Radishes

Market Report:

Native romanesco is largely done for the season, but we’re expecting a fairly good supply of green cauliflower as an alternative.  The various color cauliflowers are still available.  Our first shipment of crosnes have arrived for the season, and they’re bright, crisp and beautiful.  We are starting to see some locally-foraged oyster mushrooms arrive on the scene, and apples, pears, quince, and roots of all kinds are all at their peak and plentiful.

Equinox mesclun is still available, but their braising greens no longer are.  We’ve been getting a limited supply of Satur Farm braising greens, also delicious, but a bit on the larger/heartier side.

Nut oils & fruit vinegars

Autumn is often a time to think about heartier vinaigrettes for sharper greens.  We have an excellent assortment of fruit vinegars, such as quince, citron & mango from Huilerie Beaujolais, and blackcurrent, fig & tomato vinegars from Acetoria.  Saba, aka fermented grape must, is much like a more viscous, somewhat sweeter aged balsamic that needs no reduction.  Wine vinegars include Banyuls, Muscadet, and Forum chardonnay & cabernet.  Nut oils include, from J. Leblanc, walnut, hazelnut, marcona almond, pine nut, and pistachio.  From Belazu, the makers of our excellent harissa, we have Argan oil, and lastly, we have both squash seed oil and mustard oil.

Ordering notes: limited quantities have *stars* and first of the season items are in orange.
