New this Week: Heirloom Tomatoes, Ground Cherries, Okra, and Edamame!

Ground Cherries are related to tomatoes and the fruits, which are contained in a papery husk, are actually harvested once they fall off the plant.  They taste unusual, somewhat like a tomato mixed with a strawberry.  Okra is well-known in Southern and Indian cooking and can be eaten raw or cooked.  It’s known for its slimy texture, but cooking at high-heat reduces this greatly.  Edamame are green soybeans and they are usually boiled or steamed and flavored with salt and seasonings.  The pods are not eaten.
