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, home raised pork hocks freshly smoked in our smoke house. These are destined for at least one batch of pea and ham soup before the weather gets too warm.
Bad tempered yabbies freshly caught from the dam. These were actually used as blatant bribery on a kind man who is going to help us build our wood fired pizza oven. More on this later!
As we prepare for our annual sheep shearing these well worn thermoses and the generous lunch box make a regular appearance in the kitchen. Lunch and smoko supplies are replenished each night ready to sustain hungry workers for another day.
I recently purchased this Scullery Made Chocolate Marmalade tea from my friends at Fine and Sunny. It contains black tea, cacao nibs, carob and orange zest. With a subtle chocolate aroma it is a treat without being too sweet.
Another batch of sourdough fresh from my oven. The cut loaf was an experiment containing a handful of chopped dried figs and walnuts. Served with a little honey it made a delicious Sunday brunch.
A selection of fresh vegetables, nuts and home preserved chillies all purchased from road side stalls and a street market in Mildura. I love buying food from the person who has grown it. It just makes sense doesn’t it?
A bunch of goodness picked straight from my garden. Happy days!
Have you bought any tasty ingredients this month?
