Dublin Farmers' Market: July 10th

“...no one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.”

Julia Child, My Life in France

It's the second Wednesday of the month, which means it's time for Whole Foods Market to join us! Visit the market, collect recipe ideas, and shop for local goods. In case you missed their first visit, here's the recipe.

Tuscan Summer Asparagus

1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed
1/2 cup prosciutto, julienned
1 medium shallot, minced (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup grape tomatoes
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
1/2 lemon, juiced and zested
balsamic reduction

In a large stock pot, bring salted water up to a boil. Blanch asparagus spears for 1 1/2 minutes, remove and shock immediately in a large container of ice water. This will stop the cooking process and allow for the asparagus to retain its bright green color. Drain the asparagus and allow to dry a couple minutes.

In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat, add prosciutto and cook just until prosciutto begins to brown. Add shallots, asparagus, and season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking a couple minutes, but not disturbing asparagus as this encourages it to brown and caramelize. Add lemon and thyme and toss to evenly disperse in asparagus. Place asparagus on serving plate and put skillet back over heat.

Once skillet heats up again, add tomatoes until they just start to blister, then add a drizzle of balsamic, toss and lay over asparagus on serving plate. Garnish with pine nuts and drizzle with balsamic reduction.
