Today, at the local farmer’s market in Zurich, Switzerland, I bought: 2 salmon steaks, 5 clementines from Spain, 3 apples, 1 large parsnip, 1 small bunch cilantro called korriander here, (I’m making sofrito tonight), 8 red carrots, 2 bunches lettuce-one red, one green, both look like flower bouquets, which is why I bought them, 1 bunch lettuce cabbage looking, 6 leaves purple chard, it’s not called Swiss chard here (Ha!), 1 Spanish onion, 2 medium tomatoes, 2 baking potatoes, and 12 farm fresh eggs with orange yolks. I’ve got to say Swiss eggs are the best we’ve ever tasted.
Hubby swears the donut balls taste like Clyde’s. True Chicagoans over 20 remember Clyde’s Donuts over on the West Side. How does this compra (Puerto Rican for groceries) compare to USA prices? You tell me.
