Greens and Citrus
The Santa Rosa Famers Market is full of greens and citrus. Citrus is perfect for this season...bright and flavorful against the dreary winter. I made a puree..or jam or whatever using kale, spinach,parsley, apple, meyer lemon, jalapeno pepper and garlic which can be used any number of ways.
First I roasted the garlic in 1/4 c olive oil--then sauteed the kale, parsley, apple, jalapeno and spinach in the oil with a cup of water...10 minutes covered and ten uncovered. Add the juice and skinned sections of one meyer lemon. Puree in a blender or food processor. It's good just spread on bread or as a pizza topping. Also good as a pasta sauce.
