What's your favorite absolutely fresh garden veggie?
I was just wondering what everyone's favorite fresh veggie from their garden was. Last night, as I was cooking dinner for the 4th, I waited til the last moment to go out and pick some squash, basil, and tomatoes for dinner. I mean, everything else was done, and I'm delaying dinner an extra 5 minutes so that the squash on the table can be it's absolute freshest. Is it really that much better than the stuff a week old at the store? I'd say yes obviously.
I'd have to say my fresh favorites are tomatoes (freshness matters, though this also has much to do with varieties I think) and corn, for which you should have the grill hot or the water boiling before you even head out to pick it. I also love the fresh herbs.
What are your favorites for 10 minutes from the garden to the table?
