Welcome to another little tour of my kitchen. Thank you once again to Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for hosting this fun kitchen tour.
Firstly, a test batch of Christmas baking and some festive bits and pieces as we start to make and bake some goodies for Christmas.
A tasty little selection of smallgoods purchased from the Adelaide Central Market while attending Eat Drink Blog. The jamon, chorizo and butter have all been on my ‘must try’ list for a long time and each mouthful was savoured. The sheep milk cheese was purchased just because I was unable to stop myself with so much cheese on offer.
Bread straight from our wood oven. We all joined in sprinkling these loaves with fresh garlic and rosemary from the garden and I think this will be one of my favourite family food moments for the year.
Mulberries and a lonely strawberry picked from the garden.
A batch of swirly, purple mulberry muffins. I followed a basic blueberry muffin recipe (substituting with mulberries) to make these and they were moist, light and just sweet enough.
Immature Tromboncino zucchinis and a handful of snow peas from the garden. This year I have vowed to pick my zucchinis every day as last summer both the vines and the vegetables grew so enormous they threatened to take over my life.
Around this time every year I order a case of wine from Logan Wines. I am certainly not a wine expert but I am easily influenced by a gorgeous newsletter, attractive packaging and impeccable customer service. Some of these bottles will be gifts and some will be shared on Christmas day with family.
Recently we saved some excess roosters from the inevitable. They had a short but happy life with our chooks and now I have 14 feet. Any suggestions on how I might cook them?
What is happening in your kitchen this month?
Are you doing any Christmas baking?
Would you eat chicken feet?
