Comings and goings

As the summer produce, such as green beans and tomatoes, is exiting, we are waiting for frost to sweeten up our root vegetables.

In the meantime, cardoons are on the horizon.  Once prepared, this spiny relative of the artichoke can be used in the same ways as artichoke. We look forward to marinating cardoon pieces  in an herb-laden vinaigrette for days, even weeks, and picking at is like marinated olives every time we open the fridge.
