Standing before a plentiful selection of produce at the market is where dreams begin, or at least mine. The rainbow of fruits and veggies, in idyllically imperfect shapes, with all manner of curly tendrils and roots, are akin to something out of a storybook garden. My mind wanders through thoughts of provincial pleasures like, berry-filled crostata, vegetable-forward tian, radish dipped in artisan butter, sprinkled with Maldon salt, and biting into that first peach of the season, and smelling the nectarous aroma of sweet summer, stone fruit.
With goodness like this, it’s easy to collect a menagerie of nature’s bounty and be on your way, now what? It’s time to treat yourself and all that glorious produce right! It’s time to properly handle, wash, and store your fruits and veggies, so you can get on with the delicious task of eating them!
