I had another great trip to m favorite Asian market. The fresh produce there is like nothing I will find at Whole Foods or any other specialty market plus the prices RAWk! Here is a shot of my score: On the left
is a 1 lb pkg of jalapeno peppers, large top radish, Enoki mushrooms (these look like thin straws with a little ball on the tip), King Oyster mushrooms, fresh okra, pea vine tips, and four oriental eggplant. For the King Oyster mushrooms I have some nut cheez ferementing and I plan on stuffing them and then dehydrating to warm them a bit. I'm not sure if marinating the mushrooms would work for this, but I may do that just to add some extra flavor.
The okra is for an okra tomatoe salad I found in The Kitchen at the RFR. It sounded so good when I found it a couple months ago but okra season was passed. Now I can make it! Mmmm! The eggplant will be thinly sliced and sprinkled with some spices then dehydrated. These make great chips.
Now these are interesting! They are a large bottomed radish. I have not eaten one yet. I may just slice them up to taste them before adding them to any recipe. See what I mean about "specialty"?! I just love visiting this market because you never know what produce they will have. If you have an asian market I urge you to check them out. You will be hooked!
