Local produce

*yummy! ..firm and chewy*
Yesterday, we get to sample the first harvest of baby potatoes. They're available for 2 weeks only per year; therefore, its a popular item at the Sunday market. Baby potatoes is nothing unusual, what's new to me is that some of them are about 1cm in dia. only, so, it's a chore to try to peel the skin as my family here like them peeled . Do you have similar small ones?

We have baby tomatoes too but we don't peel them anymore...they are so small to peel!

Nice post. There's an early variety that tastes (and fantastic) different from larger "old" potatoes... another 40 minutes to lunch - I bet you can hear my stomach from Hungary
