This Week at Foraged and Found 6/26
It is looking like a light week at the markets, but-
Porcini(King Bolete) are still on! Maybe just another week of good quantities so get them while they last. One of the easiest and enjoyable ways to enjoy them is grilled, check out the recipe below for a porcini salad.
Seabeans will be available every week until August. Shelf life is 1 to 2 weeks- store in a airtight container or plastic bag in the refrigerator.
Morels are very sparse but we will have small amounts off and on in the coming weeks as available.
Dylan gets very excited about fresh salmon
Also available at other farmers stands this week-
Loki Fish Co. will have the first fresh salmon of the season this weekend at the University District, West Seattle, and Ballard farmers markets. Dylan Knutson just started a blog- Loki Fish Co.'s Market Fresh Blog. Check out his post about his dad Pete and brother Jonah's trek up to Alaska to start the fishing season.
Greens, Peas and Young Onions- this is the time of year for an abundance of these crops-
every type of young tender lettuce, snap peas, shell peas, peavines, spring wallas wallas, scallions......
Local Roots Farm has a beautiful selection of these spring beauties- including lettuce varieties with cool names like Flashy Butter Oak and Brown Golding Romaine, Japanese pink turnips, and the sweetest shell peas( at the Ballard Market last week I ate them on top of fresh mint ice cream from Empire Ice Cream!)
Siri and Jason from Local Roots
Sweet Pea Flowers- these are my all time favorite flower because of the heavenly scent! Stick your nose in a bouquet and fly away. I have been lucky to be next to Children's Garden at the Ballard Market and I get whiffs all day long of sweet peas. They are doing a nice bouquet combo with big stalks of mint and sweet peas.
Foraged and Found Edibles is a northwest wild food business selling locally to restaurants and at farmers market in the Seattle area. Throughout the summer you will find us Saturdays at the University District Market, and Sundays at Ballard and West Seattle markets.
