|Organic Purple Kale. Beautiful!|
Anyway, our trip wasn't completely fruitless (pun intended.) We hopped back on the freeway Northward about 15 more minutes to check out the Modesto Certified Farmer's Market for the first time this year. We tried some Goldstrike and Miner's Mustard from Murphy's Mustard Co. and ended up taking home a 12 oz. jar of Goldstrike. We grabbed up all of our produce essentials, especially organic strawberries. Organic Purple Kale was also amongst the many things that we bought, which I made into a delicious soup last night. You can find the recipe here.
The only thing that I did differently was cut the amount of vegetable soup bouillon in half. I use Rapunzel Vegetable Bouillon, and three cubes was plenty. Unless you like a heavy salt taste, you might get away with just two?
Next up on the chopping block is a big bunch of organic rainbow chard.
