Donut Peach

Donut peaches are a variety of peaches that look like a flat, stumpy version of a standard peach.  Folks on the internet have been inspired by these peaches to create the ultimate meta dish--donut peach donuts.

Some have been fried creations while others, like this recipe for Peach Donuts Glazed with White Chocolate & Pistachios by Veggie Wedgie, utilize a raw preparation.  We respect all methods of devouring these cuties, including au naturale.

Avocado Squash

Avocado + Avocado Squash:  A perfect avocouple!

Heirloom varieties of our favorite plants are quite pun- and cartoon-worthy.  Be on the lookout for more quirky heirloom veggies as summer continues!

As for today, the Avocado Squash lives up to its name through both its outward appearance and buttery interior.  Who would have guessed that a squash could be buttery?

Garlic Scape III

Garlic Scapegoat, Scapegoat, I ain't afraid of no goats, Scape Season

The wonderful thing about spring is that cooking and cartoon inspiration come easily.  A walk through the farmer's market in our new neighborhood this past weekend reminded us that is was the appropriate time for yet another scape cartoon.

P.S. Kale Crusaders Headquarters recently relocated to Queens, NY.  Come visit us!

Fiddlehead II

Fit as a Fiddlehead and ready for love; Fit as a Fittle and ready for love

Any Singin' in the Rain fans out there?  Although fiddlehead season is waning, we would not let another spring go by without acknowledging our love for these young, edible ferns.

Since so many folks love to pickle pretty much everything, we decided to share this classic fiddlehead pickle, Kasrod ka Achaar, by Rekha Kakkar at My Tasty Curry.

P.S. We <3 you, fiddleheads, and pickles.
