Some days call for comfort food. I trust you understand.
Today, it was crackers. Plain La Panzanella crackers, crisp and lightly salted, with a pat of real butter and local jam. Strawberry jam, to be precise, from Fuhr's Valley View Fruit Farm in Imlay City, Mich.
Paul Fuhr is a third-generation farmer who sells a variety of these delicious jams and other goods at Eastern Market, and I encourage you to give them a try. Soon.
A couple of these sweet and salty wonders marked a perfect start to a cool end-of-summer night.
