After the rain yesterday, the sun came out. But at the Ferry Plaza, it seemed like most people hadn’t got the memo. Beautiful day at the farmer’s market. And very sparsely populated. Almost no line at the Blue Bottle cart. Nice. Last weekend, I noticed (too late!) that Heirloom Organics had pink peppercorns. A chef bought the last of them. So, this week I went straight there. Well, after a stop at Blue Bottle, but still.

And there they were. Fresh. Fragrant. Beautiful. And “on the hoof.”  I’ve had them dried before, but never fresh.  Great flavor.  And the leaves smell great too.

I bought a pile. Some are now standing in for flowers. And some are going to be featured in the dinner we’re making as a gift. I think with some Meyer lemons.
