Janet’s Springtime Corner

Big FishA first-of-the-season halibut arrived at our doorstep today. This $500 fish was swimming in some cold, cold water just a couple of days ago. The meat is rich and succulent. I love spring.

The signs of spring arrive well before spring crops. We will get some baby chard and kale, but we still largely rely on the squash and root crops that got us through the winter. It is actually the foraged veggies – fiddlehead fern, miner’s lettuce, sea beans – that first liven up our plating arts. Local asparagus will arrive soon and disappear just as quickly. But it is the arrival of fresh halibut that most lifts my spirit and comfortingly reassures me that winter is behind us.
