Have You Ever Seen Anything This Beautiful?
I will admit to an impulse buy. In fact, when it comes to produce, I highly recommend it! Cruising around at Earth Fare last week I spied this gorgeous totem of mini cabbage (otherwise known as brussel sprouts). I had to have it. My first dish involved slicing the delicious globes in halves, sauteing them with butter, onion, garlic, grainy mustard, apple cider, sprinkling with local bacon, and so on. However, the next dish I made was simpler, and I think superior. They were eaten steamed with butter, sea salt and a healthy squeeze of fresh lemon. You really can't beat that combination!
