A few of my favourite things
FAVOURITE THING TO GROW
At the moment it’s heirloom tomatoes…..so much fun, colour and TASTE! There’s hundreds of varieties and the colours are amazing….green, yellow purple, orange, pink….and who’d have thought it, red! And the flavours of each are so diverse. From almost lolly sweet to beautifully tangy tart each variety is a flavour bomb awaiting the unassuming palate.
FAVOURITE TIME OF THE YEAR
Spring/early Summer. Everything’s bursting from the ground, so lush and green. Berry fruits are one of my favourite things and early summer marks the beginning of an abundance of beautiful bright berries awaiting to be picked. My absolute favourite of all is the wild strawberry. It packs a punch for such a tiny little berry.
FAVOURITE FAMILY DISH
This time of the year it’s Summer Ratatouille! I’ve grown so many huge zucchini’s this year and with fresh herbs from the garden and the Heirloom tomatoes it is truly is singing with flavour and goodness.
FAVOURITE SWEET TREAT
Honeyed Walnuts!! This is something I’ve been making for about 15 years using freshly harvested walnuts and raw non-heat extracted wildflower honey. So good over yoghurt, porridge, panna cotta or berries, great with a cheese platter or eaten straight off the spoon.
A very close second at the moment is Meyer lemon tart. Read the Recipe Here
Things to do with food scraps! Pesto from the tops of baby carrots, tasty vegetable stock from leftover peelings, croutons from old bread scraps and of course making compost or a beautiful liquid fertiliser…..to grow more veg!….and the cycle continues.
