#35: Try 5 New Fruits or Vegetables

This is part of our 100 Things in 2014 challenge. Here’s the full list.

We saw a golden opportunity when we visited the big Portland farmer’s market, and set out to get some never-before-seen-in-our-kitchen ingredients

First up: these gnomish little potatoes. We cooked them up in our breakfast hash, and were creamy and a bit pink.

As did these purple peppers; we couldn’t tell them from the green ones we cooked with them.

These plums were dessert, served raw. The skin was tart, but the flesh was amazingly sweet.

boc-4

These tiny grapes didn’t last long. Each one had the flavor of a full-sized grape in a much smaller package.

We think maybe these are a cross between plums and apricots? Anyway, they were delicious.

We’ve had huckleberry products before, but never on their own. These were our favorite.

Will and Lucy are great eaters, and will try anything. They had as much fun as we did on this little culinary adventure!
