Saucy Sauce

Howdy Cuffuflers!

I am lucky enough to have been commissioned by LOVE STIRCHLEY FESTIVAL to create a tomato sauce or a ‘love apple’ sauce. Tomatoes historically are considered to be aphrodisiacs, hence to love apple name! They are good for the heart and considered to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet. During the festival period – at least £1.00 of every purchase price will be donated to Love Stirchley Festival. After that if I continue to make the sauce, 50p of every purchase price will go to the festival. Continue reading “Saucy Sauce”

More new friends and 2 top market days

Howdy

Well, I’m recovering from a highly successful and busy weekend of fun, farmer’s markets and vegans! Saturday saw Cuffufle Preserves and Trishul Chocolate at West Midlands Vegan Festival in Wolverhampton http://www.veganmidlands.org.uk/festival/home.html

Shamefully we were so busy that no pictures were taken! If I had have taken photos, I do not have the photography skills as yet to capture the loveliness of the festival and the great atmosphere that I felt privileged to be part of.

Sunday saw a very slow bike ride to mac for the mac  for their regular last Sunday of the month food fair. http://www.macarts.co.uk/event/mac-food-market

The mac was lovely Continue reading “More new friends and 2 top market days”

Up a hill with a heavy load to Kings Heath Farmer’s Market

Howdy.

I managed to get up the hill to Kings Heath Farmer’s market – laden down with stacks of produce. I was slightly ‘puffed’ to say the least!

My trusty steed
Full trailer, panniers and rucksack – very very heavy indeed. Wasn’t so heavy on the way back mind! YAY!

Market was a success with lovely weather and even lovelier customers. My load was thankfully significantly lighter on the way back down the hill.

I did however add to the load with stacks of luscious raspberries from Billy at www.augernikfruitfarm.co.uk. He is fast becoming a favourite friend for Silly Sarah and I. In fact we’re going to become Billy’s Bitches – with Sarah using his gorgeous cobnuts in her raw chocolate goodies and me getting rather excited about his raspberries! We’re off to visit the farm over the next couple of weeks.

LUSCIOUS!
Raspberries and Rosemary about to be combined with sugar, then bashed/squashed a tad, left over night and then jam making ahoy!
