Sharing the Harvest

Last weekend my husband headed off to visit friends for a couple of days and as he drove down the driveway I think I may have yelled out "don't forget to pick a couple of lemons"......... 
Careful what you ask for some may say !!!!! Not only did I get a few lemons but also 7 wine boxes full of peaches, plums and nectarines.
So far I've made plum and mulberry jam, Indian spiced plum chutney, spicy plum sauce and baked honey peaches...........

                   An easy recipe I'm sharing today with VeggieGobbler and her new post Garden Gobblers.
Simply cut in half add a few small dobs of butter and lovely fresh honey(from my bothers hives) drizzled over the top............baked in a medium oven for 20 mins .
Beautiful warm from the oven and perfectly delish for breakfast with muesli and yogurt.

There's only so many plums and peaches a gal can eat and there's nothing like sharing the harvest so I made up a few boxes for friends and family and added some homegrown garlic and jam .

The boxes have been distrubuted , the kitchen's clean, bottles washed and ready...............
 Market tomorrow for tomatoes and a busy weekend to follow ....................

Only decision left is which market in Melbourne do I visit ?



  1. The peaches look great, as do your garlic plaits. I'm going to Preston market tomorrow - I'll have a look at the tomatoes and if I remember I'll let you know if they are any good.

    1. Ended up with a box from Glenferrie Rd, Malvern at a good price............slow roasted some last night.

  2. Wow to all of that Andrea! You're family and friends are very spoilt, I hope they realise that! Good hunting at the market tomorrow.

    1. Forgot just how busy the traffic and Markets are in Melb !!!! Was I glad to get home............

  3. we got bags of clingstone peaches from a friend that are being consumed stewed, but the big hit was peach cobbler. what a beautiful box of goodies to share
