Valerie Gordon of Valerie Confections has but those mysterious finger limes to great use. Finger limes are an oblong citrus fruit with a pearled pulp. Some people call it "citrus caviar." Valerie is candying them and using them in a raspberry gallette. She's also using the pulp in a coconut finger lime cookie. These items, and more, are for sale at the Saturday Santa Monica Farmers Market (downtown) and the Sunday Hollywood Farmers Market. A recipe from Valerie is here.
Barbara Spencer of Windrose Farms has a variety of beautiful radicchio at her stand. They are more flower-shaped than in a tight head. She recommends soaking the head of radicchio in cold water for 20 minutes before spin-drying and using. Pictures of Barbara's stand at the Wednesday Santa Monica Farmers Market are here.
