Market Seen
     It was a beautiful day at last week's gathering at The Beach. A variety of
     radishes available now at the HFM (see below for an easy way to use these
     beautiful vegetables); about 50 people were lined up before the opening bell
     (middle, right) and the crowds were comparable to mid-season numbers (top
     right, middle left); (bottom, left) 
Stanley Bourgeous of Hingham is often first
     in line to enter the market;
Adrienne and Jim Gerlach of Hingham with kids
     Andy (5) and Grace (2) enjoy the day (bottom, right).
What to do, what to do . . .
     . . . with those beautiful radishes? A radish sandwich! With thanks to the
1 baguette
12 T (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 t flaky sea salt, like Maldon
2 bunches radishes, washed, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 small handful arugula
1 t finely minced fresh garden herbs, like chives or tarragon
     1. Slice the baguette lengthwise and then crosswise, creating four quarters.
     Spread butter on the tops and bottoms of each quarter and sprinkle with salt.
     Pile sliced radishes onto the bottoms, then lay the arugula on top of them and
     sprinkle with the herbs. Top the sandwiches and press them down firmly.
     2. Serve as is, cut into small sandwiches for hors d'oeuvres or wrap for lunch.
Note: most ingredients can be found at the Hingham Farmers Market.
