avocados (which I wanted to slap the checkout girl for throwing into the bag with a satisfying - to her- clunk as they hit)

 

There's not a court on eG that would convict you for slapping her...

So I attempted to find out a little more about Malunggay leaves and concluded that they will cure anything but the common cold (and perhaps even that!) but what culinary purpose do they serve? Thanks. Anna N

One uses them like a vegetable in certain dishes or soups.  If you like, take a peek at the culinary section of the Wikipedia article for a quick run-down from various cuisines. :-)

I am game for this! With winter rapidly approaching the Highlands of Scotland and, now being semi-retired, my purse strings are quite tight. Trying DH out with the idea of a lot less meat but locally sourced, so veg is high on my shopping list.  Greengrocery shops are so few and far between here now, nearest one would be about 20 miles away, so supermarkets, sadly, are my go to.

 

I kg vine tomatoes

1 punnet cherry tomatoes

2 sweet potatoes

1/2 kg baby spinach

1 kg white onions

2 cloves garlic

8 fresh chillies

5 courgettes

2 aubergines

1 head celery

3 baby gem lettuce

6 cooked beets

large bag mixed peppers

1 swede

4 kg local Maris Piper potatoes

1 kg 'dirty' carrots

1 cauliflower - huge

1 broccoli - equally huge!

4 lemons

3 limes

bunch coriander

bag of black beans

bag of green lentils

200 gm parmesan

400 gm well aged Cheddar

250 gm smoked Ayrshire bacon

1 ltr Local Rapeseed Oil

 

no fruit as have been given a potato sack full of apples - lucky me!  Will make my bread and have some fun discovering the delights of vegetables lol

Lindsey: how many tomatoes in a punnet?  It's a term I haven't heard since my Gran passed, and she was always very vague about it....

Sorry - yes it is a very vague term I agree LOL  In the case of the toms it was 300 gm which, actually, is a very generous punnet indeed. I would say 200gm would be the norm unless you are talking 'pick your own' but that is totally another kettle of fish  :laugh:

Lindsey, glad you could join us.  I appreciate reading about how you stretch your budget in your circumstances, and have read some of your posts in other threads that touch upon the subject as well.  It's something close to my heart, and please do continue to post. 

 

That's a nice haul you describe there - would it be typical of what you would be able to get in your area at this time? Or at other times? I myself find that I hanker less for meat for various reasons although I do go the carnivorous route still on a regular basis, though!

 

PUNNET - so that's what those thingies are called!  I never knew that term until now, and Googling returned a mixed set of results which I had to wade through.  Learned something today.  However, I would question the description in the various online definitions of this term that it is primarily a UK term and/or that it is used mainly in the UK - these things are ALL OVER THE PLACE in the US at both regular supermarkets as well as Farmers' Markets and all sorts of places elsewhere.

Huiray, thank you for the welcome. My list is pretty typical of what I can get at say Lidl or our local supermarket right now. Sadly this far North we are unable to grow courgettes, runner beans, tomatoes etc without a very decent greenhouse and then we have trouble with light levels, this makes farm shops a pretty dismal affair! Mostly, had we to live on local produce, it would be Swedes, potatoes, cauliflowers, massive cabbages, and carrots. That would be it really. Easy to see why the older Scottish diet was mostly protein and oatmeal based.  Up until 10 years ago local supermarkets only stocked Olives at Christmas - they were not to be enjoyed willynilly!!!!!

Many things like this made me laugh hugely when I first moved here  :smile:

It depends. I am fond of finding meat that has been reduced because it is close to its sell-by date. Whatever store/market I happen to be in I will check for reduced meat. (I don't buy reduced ground meat of any sort.). I also buy meat from Costco and pork from one of the Asian markets. I don't order meat on-line except for bacon and occasionally sausages. I do not routinely have groceries delivered but sometimes health issues dictate how I will shop.

Interesting, Anna.  Thanks for sharing that list.  I've never done general grocery shopping over the web before, just for specific items - like vanilla beans/pods, Red Boat fish sauce, misc specialty items, that sort of thing.  I've considered trying out one or other of the "supermarket-shopping-by-phone-or-web" services in my area but have yet to do so.

 

Heh, I had to look up what "Brunswick sardines" were.  Ah, a brand.

 

What is the "Chinese lettuce" you got?

Anna, thanks.  Those are Taiwanese-type long wong nga pak (Napa cabbage), as compared with the more common squatter ones found more ubiquitously.  :-)

Round this part of China it is known as 卷心菜 (juǎn xīn cài), which roughly translates as 'rolled heart greens'. 
 
But in other parts of China, this can mean 'cabbage' in general.

Vegetable nomenclature in Chinese is a minefield.

Liuzhou, I'm not familiar with that term (卷心菜) for this kind of cabbage ("Napa cabbage" type) - does it refer especially to this "skinnier type" or to the squatter/rounder type as well, where you are?  Baike does seem to give 卷心菜 as the sort of round "cabbage" one thinks of when envisioning dishes like corned beef & cabbage, and as you mentioned.

 

Anna, "Wong nga pak/wong nga bak" (黃芽白)("yellow sprout white") is the Cantonese term I grew up with (SE Asia) and is also known/used in other parts especially Cantonese-speaking ones (e.g. Hong Kong).  The other term I commonly hear and know of is "tai pak/bak choy" (大白菜)("big white vegetable"), not to be confused with "Bok Choy" in English which is a common term in the US and refers to a different plant. (Whereas 白菜 in Chinese ("white vegetable"; and which "bok choy" is the transliteration of) could refer to either the Napa cabbage type OR to the dark green leaf looser non-rolled-up type [also known as "small white vegetable" 小白菜 in Chinese] one associates with the English term "bok choy", depending on who is talking.)    :smile:

 

Heh, certainly Chinese names of vegetables vary for the same thing depending on where you are - but in a way that is also true for many vegetables in different parts of the world with the same or almost identical vegetable in each of those cases.  The wrinkle is that in Chinese sometimes the exact same name can refer to different vegetables depending on who is speaking and where.

Here it seems to refer to this specific 'skinnier type'.  Most places, it refers to cabbage in general, as I said.

You really should learn proper Chinese instead of that obscure minority language you insist on using! 

(That was a joke. Laugh.)

I went to a different supermarket today and they have the same long skinnier type, too. However they refer to it as ' 

卷同青'. Two different names within 2 kilometers. 

 

I remember the first time I came across avocados in my local supermarket here in China. The sign by the vegetable shelves had one name (I forget what now.) I took then to the weigh station and the price label had a completely different name. Then the checkout receipt had a third name. All in a day's shopping here.

Today's shopping. (Saturday 2013-09-21)

 

 

Broad Ripple Farmers/ Market:

 

• Incredible Edibles: Various tomatoes - Siberian Tiger, Cherokee Black Heart, Chocolate Stripe.

• Lee's Apple Farm: 'Pristine' apples.  I'd never consciously seen these before.

• Nicole-Taylor's: 1 bag fresh radiatore pasta, 2 bundles fresh spaghettini.

• Funny Bone Farm: 1 head curly kale, 2 small heads densely packed broccoli + 1 teeny head cauliflower.

• Silverthorn Farms: 1 bunch celery leaves (Western type), 1 bunch French Breakfast radishes.

• Norman Mullet Farms: I bunch gnarly baby orange carrots.

• Schacht Farms: 1 doz farm-fresh brown eggs.

 

I have a fondness for distorted/non-perfect/lumpy vegetables, especially those which might be usually offered as or expected to be found as symmetrical perfectly formed things.  These were around 3 inches or so in length.

 

 

Carmel Farmers/ Market:

 

• Farming Engineers: 1 head of fresh young ginger.  First time I've seen this kind of young-harvested pink-bract ginger around here.  The topmost "rhizome"/"corm" in the pic was less than 1.5 inches across.

• Mulberry Creek Farm: 6 heads of fresh Music garlic.

 

 

Kincaid & Sons:

• 1 whole Top Sirloin Cap, trimmed a bit.

• 1 rack of baby pork back ribs (never frozen) (on sale!)

• 1 boneless ribeye

 

 

Claus' German Sausage & Meats:

• Zungenwurst (thin slices)

• coarse Braunschweiger (a nice chunk)

• 2 Schnecken sausages

 • chunk of Ring Liverwurst

Heidi, it is young ginger/early-harvested ginger.  I intend to treat it more as a vegetable and in fact is intending to cook it w/ that ribeye I got (sliced up; it will not be a "steak") plus scallions with good oil and good salt.  Nothing else.
