Farmers Market

One simple pleasure I have during the summer is to visit the St. Paul Farmer's Market once a week.  We have one of the best markets in the nation!  There is such a bounty right now and I find it hard to control myself...the colors, variety, lushness, freshness!!  If I see a fruit or vegetable I've never tried before, I just have to bring it home.  This time I brought home ground cherries.  Have you ever had one?  They grow on bushes like tomatoes and have a gauzy outer film.  Pop open that and inside is a pretty orange/yellow fruit which is tart and sweet, very delicious. I've found I'm fond of ground cherries!
