It's been really fun!
I've discovered a few new ways to make vegetables that I barely ever cooked before. Like this unattractive fellow:
Last week I played around with parsnips because I read something that said they are the least consumed vegetable. I, however, think they're quite tasty. But, not gonna lie, I totally burned a batch of them. I also ate some of it because I figured I could justify it (to my tastebuds) by saying they were "caramelized." Turns out caramelizing only goes so far until it really is burned. Whoodathunkit?
This week I'm experimenting with a vegetable I've never used before. Like, ever.
Swiss chard, baby! I'm not sure if it's the brightly colored stems or what but I've always been a little intimidated by this bold looking vegetable. But I've got a bunch of it secured in my fridge and the experimenting will commence tomorrow.
My husband just informed me that my mother-in-law makes yummy swiss chard. Crystal - be expecting a call soon!
So, I'm totally curious to know - Do you experiment in the produce section? Or just stick to lettuce and potatoes? Have you tried any "new" produce items recently? What produce items are you afraid of? Which ones do you love?
I like to ask questions. I also like answers. :)
