garden offerings

.
some small amount of fodder from our garden, unfortunately the beetroot tasted like arsenic {i imagin} and spat it out into the bin. One spring onion was nice, and the peas...

very nice blanched in salty water, with some mint, feta and vinaigrette, {with some shop bought salad}.



we have discovered a new grocery shop which is full of Cypriot/Turkish type foods like olives, cheese and amazing bread and fruit. I thought these black grapes were stunning! shall be going there often : )

  3. All looks delicious, did you toss a coin to see who was getting the spring onion?

  4. Looks yum! What was wrong with the beetroot? They are my favourite :D I boil them (skin on) for a good 20 min, get them out of the water, allow to cool, peel (which comes off really easily, but makes your hand go waaaay pink!), cut into small ish bit, season with plenty of salt, pepper, olive oil and vinegar :D Yum!

  5. I grow beetroot too, and it's wonderful. I was going to leave cooking instructions, but someone else got there first! Have another try at it - it is superb when home grown!

  9. If you're really not a beetroot fan you should make a cake with it. There is a fantastic recipe for beetroot, ginger and dark chocolate cake on the Abel & Cole website.
