Rain on a Saturday morning never deters the serious Farmers Market lovers. There are many ways to deal with a little precipitation. This week I observed the puddle jumpers, umbrella lovers, those who believe in a good jacket with a hood, and of course the ball cap wearers which I count myself among.
I thought for 10 seconds about getting back into bed and skipping this week, and then thought about what I might miss.
Turns out I would have missed some beautiful collard greens. Plus I needed eggs and of course FLOWERS!
I turned these greens into Molly Katzen's recipe for bitter greens, sweet onions, and tart cherries. Recipe included in this post from last year. If you have not tried it yet, promise me you will. I just read somewhere that eating greens adds many years to your life.
But the real reason to make it is because the combination of the tart cherries, sweet onions, and greens is just flat out good. And it makes a perfect thing to take to lunch when you spoon it into one of these.
Because jam jars are not just for pudding and soup.
