#Adelaide Central Market Watch #16

Pear lovers are testing their poaching skills on the perfect pears now available. Try twice- cooking the Beurre Bosc variety. First, poach with Tahitian vanilla pods available from Leo's Cheese ST 28/29, then bake and serve with Alexandrina cream from Smelly Cheese ST44. The Beurre Boscs are $4.99 at ST44.

Riverland Imperial mandarins are sweet and juicy at $2.99kg. Huge Chinese cabbages are $2.50 each, watermelon is 99c kg, corella pears are $5.99kg and the end of season crimson seedless grapes are $1.99kg, all from Stephan at ST16. Con's ST52 has large Hass avocados, 3 for $3, sweet baby carrots $2kg and the last Adelaide Hills persimmons for $4kg.

Dacca Bananas

Coco's has some great new lines. The stars are new-season guava for $9.95kg, red-skinned Dacca bananas $14.95kg, starfruit 3 for $5 and bunches of mixed white and purple carrots for $4.95. The ripening red Dacca has a red-purple skin, creamy light-pink flesh and a delicate raspberry-banana flavour.
Michael's ST53 has six local apple varieties all at $3kg.

Chicken breast fillet is $8.99 at Poultry Cuisine ST51, large, whole SA squid $19.90kg and live 1kg bagged Boston Bay mussels are $8.90 at Samtass.

It's roasting weather this week so try O'Connells red-wine, garlic-beef roast $9.90kg, tequila-lime, scotch fillet of pork $11.90kg or the boneless lamb legs, marinated in a traditional Greek spice mix at $13.90.

Bibimbap is the signature Korean dish made by Sunmi at Stall 1. Meaning "mixed meal', Bibimbap is served in a very hot stone bowl. Warm white rice is topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) is added and diners stir the ingredients before eating. Sunmi's nickname for the popular dish is "taxi driver food" as it's "mix, eat and go!!!"
