Tubers and roots!

It's still early spring when it comes to Greenmarket eats, but that doesn't mean you can't find some goodies. The potatoes are fabulous right now (I'm addicted to a waxy breed named Nicola.), and the celeriac abounds.

And you can find some sweet, fat carrots - not like the bland specimens you sometimes get in grocery stores.

These may look like parsnips, but they're actually parsley root, and they're delicious.

So, this week, instead of buying, say, tomatoes and peppers from your grocery store, why not try to get out to your local market and see what's in season? (Though, I suppose, if you live in the southern hemisphere, that might be peppers and tomatoes!)
