I can't wait until next Sunday, I just finished off most of the produce that I purchased last Sunday at the Montclair Village Farmer's Market. Every Sunday morning, my ritual is to grab a latte at Peet's Coffee and then walk over to the Farmer's Market on LaSalle. Currently I am finding great avocados, super sweet strawberries, sweet red peppers, fresh herbs and artichokes. Artichokes are an acquired taste, but if you love them like me, try this:
Steaming them until tender
Cut in half, length wise
Remove the very end of the cone
Remove the choke, (the fuzzy stuff in the middle)
Place on a sheet pan and sprinkle with olive oil, sea salt and pepper.
Roast for 7 minutes at 400 degrees
While hot sprinkle with chopped Italian parsley
Eat as is, or with aioili (a garlic infused mayonnaise type sauce).
