Tomatoes, corn, green beans, okra, oh my! So many choices for delicious produce at the North Park Farmer's market, how can one decide what to buy? Not to worry-succotash to the rescue!
At the heart of succotash is corn and beans and the dish resembles a stew in texture. However, there are as many recipes for succotash as there are imitations of Sylvester the Cat lisping over the syllables.. Our version of succotash starts by sauteing Da-Le Ranch bacon and removing it from the pan. In that same pan, saute Valdivia farms zucchini, Suzie's purple okra, onions from the Produce Stand, Kawano farms corn, green beans and cherry tomatoes from JR Organics. Finish by adding back the bacon and season with Salt Farm's roasted garlic infused salt. The result is no more sufferin' succotash!
