Best Arctic Char Burgers

A recent trip to the New Fulton Fish Market yielded a great purchase of an Arctic Char.  Not only was the fish incredibly fresh but it cost $5.90/lb.  The fish was just over 3 pounds and came to a total of $18.  This same fish in a market in the city would cost around $15/lb and in a restaurant could easily be over $20 per plate.  (Editors note: I did take a cab to and from the market at 3am and am not factoring in the cost of both those trips.)

Goat Sloppy Joes With Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

I had been thinking about Sloppy Joes (which happens sometimes… or it might be milk shakes, fish tacos, or other food items that I just get a craving for.)

Spring Pasta: Fiddlehead Ferns and Cherry Tomatoes

Fiddlehead ferns are a versatile ingredient, well suited for a range of dishes.  They require minimal preparation and offer a fresh taste with a nice crunchy texture.

Fiddlehead Ferns: Spring Salad Recipe

A few years ago, during one of my Saturday visits to the Union Square farmer’s market, I came across fiddlehead ferns.  They were tightly wound-up little green disks piled high in a cardboard box.  I kept looking in the box and although I wasn’t sure what they were, it was something new which meant I was going to buy some.

The great thing about a farmer’s market are vendors are more than happy to tell you about their product and most importantly explain how to prepare them.
