Jerusalem Artichoke Mash

 

With the Jerusalem Artichokes I picked up the other day from the  downtown market I sauted half of them with some broccoli and parmesan, and with the other half I decided to make a quick side for the next day’s meal.

I’m all about breaking up the work in cooking and having a side or two already done makes getting dinner together much easier (dare I say more feasible?).

Kingston Public Market

The downtown farmers’ market is in the heart of the city, and it’s the epicenter for local food in Kingston.

Some cities can boast about a year round, indoor market. While we are currently lacking in that regard we can lay claim to the oldest farmers’ market in Ontario, ours having been established in 1801.

The market is run by the city and the Kingston Public Market Vendors Association. It takes place every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in the market square behind City Hall (at the corner of Brock and Kings Street East).

Tuesdays and Thursday tend to be a little quiet, especially in the spring and fall months.

Jerusalem Artichokes- Sauted

Unfortunately the current scarceness of the local food vendors make the banana laden stalls look all that more appealing.

I just have to keep reminding myself that June strawberries will seem all the sweeter after waiting months for them to grow. Too bad strawberries go so well with bananas.
