Working with beautiful produce

I’ve had a bumper week or 2 – what with my birthday and fruit and veg galore coming to my house…….

When I can’t get local, I get organic – gorgeous fruit and veg from Vegetropolis.

Organic sevilles are now marmaladed Рready to be entered into the marmalade awards 2013! http://www.dalemainmarmaladeawards.co.uk/

The smell was devine
After all this chopping – my hands hurt but my heart was shining ūüėČ

Then came the tomato chutney…..

Tomato¬†chutney ready to cook up…
Tomato chutney jarred up….

Onion marmalade x 3 batches….. DONE. A new Spicy tomato chutney…… DONE

And today It’s all been about the Pear – Gorgeous pears from Penny at http://www.kingsnortonfarmersmarket.co.uk/¬†Old Sandlin Fruit, Malvern – a farm I intend to visit once I have a motorised vehicle¬†http://www.hfmg.org/producers/sandlin_fruit.htm. Some of the delicious pears are now in a new creation – Spicy Pear chutney, the rest will be made into my Pear and Lime jam (once I get to the markets to get some nice limes). I’ve also got lovely eating apples from Penny – they will be turned into one of my best sellers – spiced apple chutney – a rich sweet chutney – sweet from dates and eaters rather than stacks of sugar!
