After snow last weekend and pissing rain yesterday, today is a glorious spring day, perfect for a trip to the farmers’ market. Where they have the best purple sprouting broccoli I’ve seen this year. I love this stuff; it’s far, far superior to the more common green version.
Mind you, some of these recipes tell you to cook it in boiling water. I think that’s nonsense. Steaming or stir-frying is all it needs.
