Roncy Fruitstand An interesting morning at THE GOODS, we had the lovely Rainbow Power salad on the menu which consists of spinach, kale, heirloom tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, gooseberries, golden raspberries with a side of lemon-parsley rice and our wild blueberry vinaigrette. We can make this salad with our eyes closed... until today. We were so excited to use fresh picked, local field berries, but what we didn't know was they have a higher amounts of naturally occurring pectin than their wild cousins. What does that mean? Congealing... or the jello-effect. Within 30 minutes all the containers had oxidized into a deep purple and you could bounce a quarter off those babies... were they delicious? Yes! Were they all good for you? Yes! Were we stumped at the time? Yes yes. It's not living if you don't learn something new everyday right...
