frillymustard_IMG_20160218_182155250I’m starting to see signs of spring… The sun is peeking over the horizon on my way into the market in the morning, and not yet entirely gone by the time I leave in the evening. The forecast for Saturday is 57 degrees! The selection of greens is getting bigger. And we have Camelot Valley chevre again!

As I write this, Dusty is preparing dinner. Nope, turns out it’s a drink. But very soon, Dusty will be preparing dinner! At this time in the week, we’re often still eating the stragglers that didn’t sell from the previous week, but tonight we were so excited by some of the options available that we brought home a package of sweet Italian sausage, some Apple Tree chevre (because we do have more of it in stock than the Camelot Valley…), and a bag of frilly scarlet mustard greens to top a sourdough pizza crust.

I love pizza, and chevre, and North Mountain Pastures sausage, but what I am *really* looking forward to about tonight’s dinner is the mustard greens. I like normal mustard greens okay sometimes (Dusty always loves them), but these frilly scarlet greens are a different thing entirely. They’re also known as “Red Frill” or “Ruby Streaks”, depending (it seems) on the seed company. By any name, they are tender, spicy, al dente, and delicious. The last time we had them, Dusty turned them into a Caesar-type salad, and I think it was the best salad I’ve ever had. If you like arugula, you just might love frilly scarlet mustard greens.
