Live all you can: It’s a mistake not to.
Really enjoyed this - both the photos themselves (particularly fond of the broccoli) and the opportunity to add to and/or refresh my scanty German vocabulary.
A must try and get more pictures from the other stalls with all the different citrus fruit and the first tulips as this market is just wonderful. BTW this is kale, broccoli was sold out.
Ah,kale. My mistake. Yes, more pix would be great. x
Lovely! I just pulled a pyrex plate filled with Rosenkohl out of the oven. Delicious crunchy topped with olive oil, nuts and maple syrop.Went to look at label in Muelleimer. $8.80 a Kg (our measure is 2,204 grams for one Kg). How does one compare prices?Our minimum hourly wage is 10.15.
Schwartzwurzein looks a lot like burdock. Today I learned that salsify and burdock are not the same. I love vegetables, especially the root vegetables including burdock, parsnips, daikon, beets, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Thank you for these photos today. It is dark and rainy here now but by the end of January there will be crocuses coming up.
what are the roter rettich? some kind of big radish?
And that is how vegetables should look.
My grandmother called black salsify the poor man's asparagus and this is what some people still call it in some parts. It's quite a job to prepare, peeling it under water and all sorts of tricks to keep it white. I find it tasteless. But it looks interesting.The red radish is just that, like a longish version of the usual radish, but a bit tougher.8 dollars for a kg of Rosenkohl, that's steep Ellena! The internet tells me that the 3 Euro they charged here yesterday are about 4.50 Can dollar. But this is because it's in season, and most people who grow vegetables have lots of it at home.
And I am glad that this is how vegetables look!
Sabine, I am sitting in a corner blushing.Talked to my oldest about this pricing and realized that I can not compare price of your pound with price of ours because ours is about .50gr less, unless I do more calculations. Oh and who cares. Yes, they are more expensive here because they are imported (sprouts)and when I tell you that I weigh 140 pounds, it's only about 133 of your pounds. And why did I make myself think about that now? Have a good week, Sabine. Love that name. Sounds so kind, gentle, soft - cotton ball.
Fantastic photographs. I always enjoy visiting your blog... your platform for expression! (Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind comment.) We share several things in common -- including our taste in music. Be well.
