I stayed in town last weekend so I could attend the Edmonds' Saturday Market and buy raspberries. I needed to make more jam. I am off in a couple of weeks to visit my friends on Nantucket. If I don't bring jam I suspect that my friend's husband won't be nearly so happy to see me.
There were lots of flowers.
And all sorts of beautiful, locally grown vegetables.
I bought a lot of veggies and made a roasted vegetable salad---beets, tomatoes, carrots, Walla Walla Sweet onions, fresh corn, garlic and fingerling potatoes, all roasted with olive oil and salt and pepper. Once the veggies had cooled off, I added a good splash of red wine vinegar, a couple of handfuls of chopped fresh basil and some croutons I made from a home baked baguette.
There was music, too, from several sources. I like this fellow and his bluesy numbers.
I found plenty of fresh local raspberries, enough for two batches of jam. I think my welcome will be insured!
Thanks, Rune. Your crab was delicious.
