SIGNS of Autumn 2011

Hello all of you Phoodographs & Finds Fans!
Total knee replacement surgery prevented me from posting as regularly as I would have liked to, however I’m back with a great recipe and a few more finds.
Tip…try for a Friday to maximize your enjoyment of the non stop finds on the north fork of Long Island. If all you have is the weekend…start early.
There is still plenty of time to pick pumpkins, catch the newly harvested garlic and have a simply fabulous time on Sound Avenue and Route 25. Just when we think there is no more to find, we find!
Specifically, the Garden of Eve Organic Farm Garlic Festival was a winner (see pic of Sandy with Eve). Even I got a education on the many types of garlic that exist (See pic of me with my bag full of fresh garlic).
In front of the lavender labyrinth was a short story explaining the difference between a labyrinth and a maze.
Do you know the difference? Zoom in to find out.
Organic food vendors and  great entertainment made for a fun couple of hours.

On Sound Avenue we found fresh horseradish at Holy Schmitt’s…and just in time for the Jewish New Year.
Fabulous…such a difference from store bought.
Remember…stick a cooler in the trunk in case you want to buy something that needs refrigeration…such as horseradish.
Last but not least…and a wonderful find was a simple little farm stand owned by Joanne Zilnicki. The Zilnicki family (Edward Zilnicki is a big name in the world of farming) has many Zilnicki’s selling their own fresh farmed fruits and veggies…and we just happened to find our source in Joanne for the next BetsaPasta recipe…namely
BetsaPasta Slow Roasted “Champion” Tomatoes with all Fresh Mozzarella, Basil, Thyme, Rosemary, and Oregano.
Ha Cha Cha!
Thank you Joanne and Eve for your fine reception.
We’ll see you again real soon.
Next up….The Recipe
Mangia Baby!
Bert
