For a while now I have been discussing joining a co-op. Fresh produce from farmers markets for a cheap price. What is there not to love? Mainly I have been too lazy to find one, to convince someone to go in on the shares with me. But, alas, after five minutes of some research, I found a co-op not only in my neighborhood of Pilsen in Chicago... but six houses down the street from me. No excuses. So I put on my coat last Saturday and walked across the street to go volunteer in distributing the bounty. Kiwis, fennel, sun chokes, grapefruit, dried peppers galore. So many new and interesting things, so many delicious things to cook in the future.
