Agretti, Native French Breakfast Radishes, and Santa Rosa Plums

Now In: Agretti, Native French Breakfast Radishes, and Santa Rosa Plums

Knoll Farm Santa Rosa Plums and Patterson Apricots are in.  Cot n’ Candy Apriums from Frog Hollow are candy-sweet and not to be missed.  Agretti, an Italian plant with needle-shaped leaves, similar in flavor to pousse pied, is here.  Sometimes called land seaweed, agretti has a flavor that is reminiscent of spinach but more mineral-y. 

Now is the time to try Hodo Soybeanery’s legendary Yuba skin.  If you’re wondering what that is, it’s the skin that forms on the vat of soybean milk as it’s being turned into tofu.  It’s considered a delicacy and after tasting it, we know why.  See what they do here. Or watch Daniel Patterson make it look easy here.  SF Chronicle’s article on Hodo Soybeanery’s Yuba is pretty much a who’s who of CA restaurants.
