At the farmers market today it was cold and rainy. I was sure glad to have my pickle sandwiches and coffee.

The sandwiches are made with finnish rye bread, tahini and pickle slices. As you can see, I cheated with a little bit of real cow butter too. Finnish rye bread is important – the best in the world – but any dark whole grain bread will do. The tahini is the dark roasted kind and of course the pickles are our own lactic fermented cucumber dill garlic pickles fermented since august.

It sure did warm me up along with the coffee and coffee bread from a neighboring marketeer.

Next weekend we are supposed to get really cold weather and snow, but we are going to try to get to the market one more time, perhaps with miso sandwiches for extra warmth.
