More signs of spring in the neighborhood

I walked up to a local market for some shopping — primarily walnuts, which were on sale. (I eat 1/4 cup/day of walnut halves — bulkier than chopped — which amounts to 1.2 oz. I bought 5 1/4 lbs so I’m set for almost 3 months.l)

I also spotted these interesting marmalades, particularly the one on the left, but unfortunately those are too sugar-laden for me. But I do like the idea. Another non-purchase: Edmond Fallot walnut Dijon mustard. It would have been a purchase had they had it, but they did not, though they did have Edmont Fallot green peppercorn mustard, which also is excellent (but I still have some).

I got some hickory-smoked paprika, which sounds intriguing, and gomashio made locally by the store, a mix of sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, kelp, tamari, and salt. Good on rice (which I don’t eat) and also on roasted veg (which I do). I imagine it would also be good on cooked grains other than rice.

And on the way back I notice more crocuses coming to life.
