Harvesting plenty of beans(bush and climbing) zucchini and the first of my tomatoes.
I also have lots of onions in store too so today i decided to spend the day making assorted pickles.
The first batch is called Garden Harvest Pickles and included:
Carrots and 3 green chillies (shop)
Next up Zucchini Pickles, a good one to make when you have a couple of very large, oh i didn't see you there lurking under the leaves zucchini.
First time i have used this recipe and it did involve quite a bit of chopping and soaking (2hrs) but i hope in about a months time it will be well worth it.
Ingredients from the plot included :
Zucchini, Onions , Garlic, 1 Red pepper (shop)
The last pickle, Indian style Onion pickle i have made once before on Xmas day to serve with roast pork. It was a real hit with the whole family and we ate it hot , so it will be interesting to see how it tastes cold in a months time.
Recipe calls for 1 kg of Red onions and lots of different spices and herbs.
Tastes better than it looks!!
What with washing bottles and lids, chopping, washing dishes more chopping it was a long day, last lid went on at 7pm but very satisfying!!!
Lunch was tomato and fetta quiche.
Make a cup of tea, relax and visit Daphe and see whats being harvested around the globe.
