Market Haul: October 31

market haul

This week’s haul is a cornucopia of greens: broccoli, broccoli rabe, escarole, collards. To avoid getting overwhelmed, it’s never a bad idea to wash and blanch your greens all at once so they’re ready to go throughout the week. For those of you haven’t tried Japanese salad turnips, they’re sweet and juicy and absolutely delicious eaten raw in salads or quickly braised, as in the recipe below. Eat their tops as you would any greens—we’re partial to a simple sauté with olive oil and garlic.

The Haul: Sweet potatoes, broccoli rabe, escarole, salad turnips, collard greens, broccoli, and Mutsu and Cameo apples

Recipe: Apple Brown Betty with Maple–Bacon Frozen Custard

Apple Brown Betty with Maple-Bacon Frozen Custard

Chef Tory Miller's irresistible recipe for apple Brown Betty, a cobbler-like dessert that dates back to Colonial times, is inspired by a popular New England twist on apple pie: he mixes shredded sharp cheddar cheese into the crumbly topping before baking. A Madison-based chef who's committed to sourcing as many of his ingredients from Wisconsin as he can, Miller uses a 15-year-old cheddar from Hook's Cheese Company. You can purchase their cheeses online or substitute any premium local cheddar cheese. Get the recipe here.

Market Haul
As the weather gets cooler, it becomes even harder to decide what to cook. Should we turn those Yukon gold potatoes into a creamy gratin or roast them alongside carrots and red onions? Add the fennel to aromatic wine-braised chicken thighs or serve it as a salad, sliced razor-thin and doused with lemon juice? Here are a few of the recipes we’re eyeing as we make these tough decisions.

The Haul: carrots, scallions, fennel, garlic chives, red onions, Yukon gold potatoes, green beans, and Golden Delicious and Gala apples

The Menu Ideas:

Crispy Braised Chicken Thighs with Olives, Lemon, and Fennel [LAT] Braised + crispy = the best of both worlds. Adapted from Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc.
