New is a on going marketing glitch. Irritating to me to say the least. Example: How roasted jalapenos turned into Chipotle is beyond me, but many made their $$ off that short lived trend.. Now I just wish they would push Old Potatoes some..

At sproutpeople.com the slogan is "eat more sprouts", all kinds of sprouts, including garlic. Google and you will find all kinds of sprout recipes.

And, google "bay corn" and see what you find!

Ha! Is this the link you're talking about?
http://www.pechsiam.com/canned_babycorn.htm

If you'll note, it says "Whole bay Corn are a superb addition to Salads, Stir-Frys, Stews and Cocktails, or simply hot with butter." Now I want some even more.

Why do I picture a vegetable drawer full of ties, and/or a tie drawer full of vegetables when I read this?

And Grits can't be a vegetable because they're served at breakfast. Who eats vegetables for breakfast?

Only in an omlette!

I wish salsify were available on more menus. I loved having them sauteed in butter in France.

Xannie- I've never seen it in the grocery stores here but I have seen it on the occasional upscale NY menu. Here is a description and quite frankly it doesn't taste like oyster as this blurb claims.

Salsify (tragopogon porrifolius) is a vegetable whose root and leaves can be used for cooking purposes. It is also known as white salsify, goatsbeard, vegetable oyster, and the oyster plant. The latter two names reflect the root's taste, which when cooked, resembles an oyster. Salsify is a member of the sunflower family and its varieties are named French Blue Flowered and the Mammoth Sandwich Island. It is cultivated in Central and Southern Europe, the United States, and in Asia (Taiwan), and is said to have originated in the Mediterranean. Its root is similar in appearance to a thin parsnip. Additionally, it is long in length and is cream or white in color. From the top of the salsify, green, grass-like shoots emerge. These leaves are edible and can be used in salads, for example. Salsify is a hearty plant that requires approximately 150 days to grow. However, it can be left in the ground during the winter months and will still flourish. When cultivated for a few years, salsify will also produce stalks that bear purple flowers.


You can purchase fresh salsify in many supermarkets and specialty stores during the winter months. You can also buy canned salsify year-round. However, canned salsify is not always an easy item to locate. When purchasing fresh salsify, you will find roots that are approximately 8-12 inches long and one inch in diameter. Select only those roots that are firm to the touch and that are well developed. Once purchased, you can safely store the fresh salsify in your home for up to one week as long as the roots are wrapped in plastic and placed in your refrigerator. When you are ready to use the salsify, cut-off its root ending then use a peeler to remove its outer skin and coating. To avoid discoloration of the root prior to its use, take the newly peeled salsify and drop it into a solution of water and lemon juice.



Common uses for salsify in cooking include cutting the root into 1/2-inch cubes and adding it to stews and soups. The root can also be microwaved, boiled, steamed, creamed, or mashed. A popular recipe suggests cooking the salsify root then mashing it and forming the mashed salsify into patties that are then fried. Because salsify root has an unusual taste, you may want to experiment with using it in recipes. While it is known for its oyster-like flavor, many people have also claimed it tastes similar to an artichoke. When cooked it also has the texture of an artichoke heart.

There are vegetables in my Old Style???

I see broccoflower and orange cauliflower in the grocery store but that's probably about as trendy as rural Wisconsin gets...

Pleasant Hill, in Kentucky (http://www.shakervillageky.org/): They have salsify on the menu at the Inn there sometimes. I've never seen it anyplace else, but their version is creamed, and tastes like nice Southern vegetables, but without any really distinctive flavor of its own.

Okay, "new" vegetable and new use.

Today's "barcode" in the Boston Globe (essentially cocktail of the week) features a drink based on kabocha squash, otherwise known as Japanese pumpkin.

Unfortunately I couldn't find a link, but "It involves piercing roasted squash with cloves and steeping it with cinnamon and brown sugar in fragrant Absolut Vanilla. This is strained, and in goes a smidge of Amaretto, Cointreau to cut the sweetness, and a bit of cream."

Gee, all this for only 10 bucks?

What ever happened to grilled vegs? Bobby Flay's old shows still have them.

On the Splendid Table radio show yesterday, Jacques Pepin was talking about Julia Child's take on grilled vegetables, basically: "Why would anyone want to eat food that is burned on the outside and raw on the inside?"

Bay Corn is of course not a new vegetable.  Pocohontas served John Smith Bay Corn on the shores of the Chesapeake. As most modern gourmets know, Bay Corn can sometimes act as an aphrodisiac, which is probably why John Smith fell in love with her

Interesting FriedClam! Now we know.

Besides discussing the Bay corn subject here, the fun is Googling all the recipes, and restaurant menu mentions of Bay Corn. And it does have a few of its own threads here at Roadfood.

Oh, and I actually fixed Buffalo Bay Corn for our family Christmas party. I am still working on my recipe for Bay Corn scampe. :~)

See yall when I get back from Vegas next week.

Dearfolk,
   Really old style would be kale greens... I haven't seen those anywhere in years. Baked squash is becoming a rarity here: everybody seems to have only the pre-prepared fried kind. Same with zucchini and okra.
   And I haven't had a decent dish of fried potato eyes since I don't remember when.

My vegetables of choice are good old-fashioned peas, corn and succotash. I'm always annoyed in restaurants when they serve me some other vegetable concoction with my hot turkey sandwich.
