Saturday morning in Vermont means only one thing: farmer’s market. The stalls are packed with the freshest of vegetables, and roaming the market in search of dinner’s green is a tough job, but someone has to do it. Beets, garlic scapes, carrots, oh my! Produce that is vibrant with color and plump, exploding with flavor is what draws me in.
A lone bag of spring green sugar snaps catches my attention over the golden beets and heirloom carrots, a perfect accompaniment to the planned grilled beef tips.
On the car ride home, somehow, a few snap peas mysteriously disappeared. I couldn’t resist the delicate pods, and popped a few in my mouth to uncover their sweet burst of flavor.
Not only were they cute, but they were delicious!
Produce has a peak of freshness. Capturing greens, at their height is worth celebrating.
With these sugar snaps in their prime, a photo shoot of the delectable pods, to revel in their peakness, was in order.
I could hear my lone pod, when placed on a stark white plate say…..”Mr. DeMille, I am ready for my close-up”.
Live in color,
