Stopped by Tinicum CSA farmstand at Schneiderwind Farm & Nursery on the way to the studio today. It’s burgeoning offerings are piled high on makeshift tables—bi-color and white corn, frilly lettuces still wet from the field, ripe tomatoes, fat green beans, curly kale, blueberries, even foraged chanterelle and chicken of the woods mushrooms and much, much more. A bushel of sugar plums caught our attention. Of course we had to buy them. By the time we arrived at the studio and carried our vegetal bounty up the long steep stairs we had decided to make this the week of cold summer soups. And so we start it off with cold tomato & sugar plum soup garnished with olive oil and green onions. A little sweet. A little tart. A lot delicious.
