Back in Business

The new veggy & fruit store on Jaffa's Yefet Street that was burned down the day before it was supposed to open this week, is back in business!

With the help of a few hard-working friends, they've done it.
And that has taken not only hard work, but also more than a little courage, in the face of the protection rackets running in Jaffa.

I really wish them well and as they are close to my home, they can be assured of me being their client.
Their produce is of a really good quality and fresh from the field, so that helps as well.

Is there a logic in the use of different coloured plastic bags or is it meant to "lighten" up the landscape.

I recycle - bring my own plastic bags to my local veg place. They are used to lil old weird me by now. I have them in all colours too!

Items are all, except cabbage etc. sold per kilo?
What are the things between the red and green cabbage, some kind of alternative potatoe?
Because of the move to this new palace I during the cleaning of my former shack found a possible flower for the lovers of scented growlings, the Jerusalem Oak.
If dried, the flowers keep the smell for years is written on the package.

Everything is sold per kilo,including the cabbaged, which are weighed & priced accordingly. Between the 2 cabbage types you can see "batatot" or sweet potatoes.

I thought this to be Jerusalem Artichoke a plant I intended to use as a wind breaker, the other choice would have been expensive plastic netting, too the thing can be eaten
or fed to animals.
While having a look on the net I found another interesting thingling, the Yacon or Apple of the Earth.
Until now the only adress for me to get the seed is to be found at Daileys fruit in all of places Australia.
Time to contact some South- American embassy's!

Jerusalem artichoke is a delicacy (for people), available only for a short period during autumn. They go tasteless after the first rains and mud, although they are still sold.
They are grown in the Shfela and northern Negev area, so i guess it should be possible to order seeds in Israel.
In the past they were considered poor people's food, but since they have been re-detected by fancy restaurants, they have become somewhat expensive.
Some people are sensitive to them and get cramps after eating them. Happily that's not me.
you should eat the straight ones. The trick is NOt to open the pot while preparing them, as the sudden temperature change will make them go wrong.
As their taste is delicate, i love them best with just a small amount of very good olive oil, a little course salt and a few drops of lemon juice

I actually meant the Yacon to be my next experiment, to get the Jerusalem Artichoke would take me 150 km by car.
Around here we are kind of olfashioned in our eating habbits.
In the future I intend to get myself a small greenhouse to grow all the things which failed over the past years.
Did some more searching on the web and have found a potential supplier in Belgium, the by the way best quality of seed comes from France.
