Tesoro Tierra turkey testimonial

Even though it’s not yet Thanksgiving, it was impossible to resist a fresh-killed 18-pound turkey from Tesoro Tierra Farms today. Accompanying it to the table were yellow and green bush beans picked just this morning, courtesy of Patrick, also at the South Austin Farmers’ Market on South Congress Avenue. The texture of this turkey was beautiful and there was no shrinkage as it roasted. Acorn squashes from the market were baked during the last hour that the turkey spent in the oven and were sweet and nutty. Adding some zest to the dressing were beautiful poblano peppers from Franklin Zieschang, also at the market. His peppers of all types always look too pretty too eat, but they’re too tasty not to. All week there has been delicious broccoli and cauliflower from last week’s market. And I almost forgot the eggplant. All these provisions from one tiny market! This market is open the year ’round each Saturday, with few exceptions. This coming Saturday after Thanksgiving is one of those exceptions, but the larder is stocked and we can wait for two weeks.
