POPCORN and fresh-ground CORNMEAL . . . are coming to the Evanston Market for the first time this Saturday. Choose from the black (above), red, or yellow popcorn, and from Bloody Butcher, Hopi Blue, or Oaxacan Green corn meal -- great for corn bread, corn muffins, polenta, or whatever else you can think of!
Get a big hunk of sexy burdock at the market this week. Try some of the recipes in the Food & Farm Notes archive on henrysfarm.com
I am interested in all the issues at the nexus of food, farming, and nature. I am deeply indebted to my scientist father, creative mother, and the amazing food grown on my sister Teresa's herb and fruit farm and on my brother Henry's vegetable farm in the beautiful Mackinaw River Valley of central Illinois. More about Henry at henrysfarm.com.
