I love finding pea shoots once or twice a year in my Asian grocery store..the last batch I bought were a little tough as they were older plants

Oh I just love pea shoots. A quick saute in a super-hot pan slicked with oil, lemon juice and crushed red pepper is fantastic. Solmstea, love your idea of serving them atop eggs. On crostini is nice too!

Love pea shoots more than anything. I used to get 3 bunches a week (for $1 each!) at the Santa Monica farmers market, but since moving back to DC, it's like $4 for half as much and all the pea shoots are woody. Wah. Got to grow my own. I just saute them with some garlic and maybe a little lime juice. Simple, easy, delicious. Great on top of eggs for brunch.

What is "food transparency"? I know what "transparency" means when used while negotiating a business deal but never have heard it when used with food, other than, e.g., cellophane noodles. ;o)

Food transparency just means knowing where your food comes from - how the meat was raised, how the produce was grown, who did the raising and the growing, etc. I'm sure it's something you're very familiar with, just with a different label. Cara Rosaen, the Co-Founder of Real Time Farms, gave a great TED talk on food transparency last year. If you have 12 minutes to spare, you can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XZUidbcwuc
