They’re not exactly new, but for us they’ve only recently become a regular source of healthy nutrition for our diet. Juan would say they’re pipirisnais, or not for the people from his rancho, LOL! – believe me, we’ve had those discussions – but I have always insisted it’s the way our ancestors used to eat. Without any preservatives. Natural food from local ranches, and well, slowly but surely, I think he’s coming around to the idea too. We were at his mom’s house the other day, in fact, and he was telling her all about the farmer’s market we had shopped at. He said, “yeah, they all bring their own grocery bags so they don’t have to get any plastic bags…” His mother responded: “Oh yeah, like we used to do in the rancho.” I didn’t say anything, but I could tell by the look on his face he was a little surprised by her answer 🙂
This is some of what we found at our local Urban Harvest farmer’s market.
