There's one thing I look forward to every Saturday morning - hitting the local Farmer's Market! You never know what will be available each week, so it's like a big surprise. One of my favorite finds is figs. They are a rare treat for my palate (wish I owned a whole grove)! Anyhoo, I just returned from my morning's spree, and I had a blast.
Amongst my finds today were some greenish eggs! I've seen brown ones, but green ones? Never! Apparently Dr. Suess knew all about them!
You get to meet and chat with some very interesting people, too. The man in the top picture sold raspberries and lavender and all kinds of things you would not normally have in your own garden (and especially one as rebellious as mine is this year!). He handed out Raspberry Pie recipes, which I thought was extremely smart thinking! Here it is (let me know if you try it, because I haven't given it a go, yet):
Farmer's Market Raspberry Pie
3/4 cup sugar 2 cups egg whites
2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen; the man above prefers you buy fresh) :)
1 teaspoon vanilla 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Dash salt 1 cup whipped cream
1 pie crust, baked
Combine all the ingredients, except whipped cream and pie crust. Beat 15 minutes, till nice and thick. Fold in the whip cream and pour it all into the baked crust. Place in freezer until ready to eat. Then....slice and serve and say "Yum!".
Afterthought: It was brought to my attention that 2 cups of egg whites is a lot. lollolol. It sure is. So, if you try this recipe, better start with 2 eggwhites and work your way up...if necessary.
