Two days ago, Josef and I did our twice a month marketing at our wet market here in Cainta. And look what I found inside the stall of my “suki” (favorite vendor), some fresh produce that are old-time favorites. I seldom see these in other stalls in the area, something as fresh as they look.
I love zucchini but they are not regular fares in our household because I seldom see them in the wet market and the ones they sell in supermarkets no longer look fresh. Do you eat fiddlehead fern? We call it locally as paku or pako. And boy, it really tastes good made into salad. Those new slim and long green ones are called French beans,my suki said, and they are now locally grown in the uplands in Baguio. How nice, can’t wait to taste this with a few drops of oyster sauce.
