First, I have two words: duck eggs.
Second, I am happy to say that the noble lemon has found its way back into to my diet.
Third, the Minneapolis Farmers Market has the most beautiful strawberries in the whole world.
And fourth? These three foods have made my culinary life much more interesting lately.
Ah yes, I'm reintroducing foods again, for better or worse. So far, it is only for the better - I think - so I'll just keep rolling with it, and hope that it never seems worse.
In the meantime, I am taking full advantage of my new foods. It is so exciting to have access to this incredible duo of ingredients! Let's start with the duck eggs. Minneapolis has multiple places to easily purchase duck eggs: the Seward Co-op, Traditional Foods of Minnesota, and the Minneapolis Farmers Market. This is absolutely incredible and makes me feel über fortunate. After deciding to take the plunge and try them, I was first a little perplexed - I haven't cooked with eggs in two years, and really didn't know what to do! So, my first duck egg experience was simple: scrambled with fresh herbs and arugula from my garden, finished with smoked sea salt.
