A springtime haul.

My local farmer’s market here in DC has finally started up, and yesterday I made a good haul that had me thinking back to a wonderful spring day we passed in Berlin last year. Both days included delicious seasonal food (strawberries, asparagus), and sightings of peonies.

Spring at the farmer’s market: asparagus, strawberries, arugula and sorrel, rhubarb.

I’ve already made some strawberry shortcake, but I’m particularly excited about the sorrel and the rhubarb I picked up. I haven’t decided whether I’ll make a sorrel soup, or some kind of sorrel egg or custard dish, like a sorrel and onion quiche or something. And it’s still a toss-up between rhubarb pie and rhubarb crisp, though I’m leaning towards pie. Keep an eye on The Seasoned Skillet for more on what I’m making.
