The Morningside Almanac: Week of 12/2

Written by

For your sensory entertainment, today Bwog explores the Greenmarket’s current comestibles chromatically.

White: Look for pure white parsnips at Monkshood and white rutabaga at Stannards (they are usually yellow).

Brown: The big round loaves of bread from Cayuga are crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. If you want them, come early; they’re the first to go!

Red: You can find out-of-season fruits in jam form at Beth’s Farm Kitchen. They’re perfect for pancakes.

Purple: Try purple cabbage! Cut it into strips and sauté them with other cut vegetables. Add an egg for a healthy and filling breakfast.

Green: Gonzalez Farm has leafy greens. Their two types of kale look great.
