Next week will see the equinox, which must mean that Christmas is getting closer. So my advise this week is .... beat the Christmas rush, buy lots of lovely gifts at the market, and order your mince pies soon.
This week we have ...
Gammon ~ Bacon
Beef and Vegetable Lasagnes ~ Cottage Pies ~ Fish Pies ~ Pork Pies ~ Quiches (including Chargrilled pepper, salmon and chive) ~ Scotch Eggs.
Lime Curd ~ Home grown figs in Vanilla and Star anise syrup.
White chocolate cups ~ Bakewell tarts ~ Mini jam tarts - made with home grown blackberry jam ~ Coffee and walnut cakes and buns ~ Victoria sponge with Passionfruit curd ~ Vanilla cupcakes ~ The Usual Bread and pastries ~ Crunchy top lemon cakes ~ Butter shortbread ~ Double chocolate cakes ~ Chocolate fudge cakes
Tracy's usual goodies ~ Cushions ~ Lavender bags ~ Tote bags
This week David will have the first of the celery crop for sale. This is very exciting. Much of the tasteless imported kind has a high peasticide residue. Don't forget the leaves can be eaten too !
We also begin the season of soups. Kicking off with Carrot and coriander.
This weeks recipe helps to make the most of the last of the season's waxy potatoes, 'Indian Summer Potatoes'. A gently spiced potatoe salad using coconut milk.
