Spotlight on Spring Varieties

Look for these specialty items at local farmers markets and grocery stores this spring.

| February/March 2011

Black Radishes: Less juicy than red radishes but with more bite; excellent raw but also stand up to baking.

Cheddar Cauliflower: Just as delicious as its paler relative, but with 25 times more beta carotene.

Meyer Lemons: Sweeter, juicier, more tender and less acidic than regular lemons; exquisite in lemonades and marmalades.

Orange Thyme: You could get addicted to the citrusy-sweet fragrance of this herb staple.

Purple Sprouting Broccoli: Iron-rich and vitamin-packed; strong, spring-greens-flavored shoots.

Seckel Pears: Adorably snack-sized and exceptionally sweet; often called “sugar pears.”
