In my kitchen is. . .
a collection of goodies. Every year around Christmas time I like to buy some foodie treats, usually from an international purveyor. This year I went to Dick Smith’s General Store. No, he doesn’t sell computer bits and pieces, his store is stocked with products sourced from around Australia. This photo is just a sample of a variety of food treats that I brought home.
The Pink Lake salt is from Victoria, the dried muscatels from South Australia and the peppercorns from Queensland. I can think of many uses for the delicious toffee apple syrup produced in Port Macquarie, NSW. The shop is well worth a visit or you can order online.
In my kitchen is . . .
some Australian buffalo mozzarella.
These camembert were a joint effort with a friend. They have grown their white mould and are waiting to be wrapped in foil and then to rest in the fridge. For amateur cheesemakers, I think they taste pretty good.
I love making mascarpone and quark and prefer them to the shop bought products.
How easy is it to make your own yoghurt? I always thought it couldn’t be true but it is AND it tastes great AND is so cheap!
Here I have my homemade yoghurt smothered in tree ripened apricot sauce in a pretty new bowl. The apricots were from my friend’s tree. The flavour of the fruit is unbelievable. Just look at the colour of the sauce. I won’t be able to eat a shop bought apricot again, they are tasteless.
Move over duck a l’orange for now there is duck a l’abricot.
