this and that

Love seeing all the different produce at the fruit stands...like this huge lemon!

Grown in Wakayama it was only 100 yen (plus tax)!

I recently have been seeing beets, so I tried pickling it raw...yummy!

This particular variety was called Detroit Dark Red.

This other variety I found was called Golgo in Japanese, (Gorgo, not sure of the spelling) also known as Barbabietola.

Love the pink rings!

We ate it raw, pickled...

and roasted.

Saw this Rittersport on Rowena's flickr page and kept my eye out for it.

The stores haven't really been bringing in new flavors, but I'm glad I found it and got to try it...salted honey almonds & milk chocolate...so good! I didn't share...

Tankan, a type of citrus.

They look really ugly, but when you cut them open they are bright orange.

They don't have any seeds and they are really sweet.

They reminded me of the oranges my mom used to grow.

What have you been seeing in your markets?

That is one HUGE lemon! And the beets are so cool!

Rowena said...

that lemon is ginormous! was it organic so that you could use the skin if you wanted?

Love seeing your interesting produce! We got huge Meyer lemons from a friend, and have been enjoying sweet grapefruit and cara cara oranges.

Jalna, cool yeah?!

It probably wasn't Rowena, but I used some of the skin in a salad anyway...

I always enjoy seeing your colorful fruits too Sheri :)

Take care everyone!
