I enjoy taking walks. And whenever I happen to see dog roses, it makes me happy. I can‘t imagine anything more relaxing than sitting in the sand next to a bunch of dog roses and listening to the bees buzzing through the sunshine. On our last vacation we went to Denmark, and there are always lots of dog roses huddled between the dunes. They were brimming with rose hips, which are chock-full with vitamin C, and made remember that we used to collect them and make jam when I was little. So, this recipe is next on my kitchen „play list“, if I manage to find enough rose hips.
I love fall. The crisp air, the cooler temperatures and the abundance of fruits and vegetables. After all the salads and cool dishes of summer, I enjoy making the stews, roasts and comfy dishes of fall.
One of those are the pears in red wine. I love that they can be a side dish to a roast, as well as a delicious, simple but elegant dessert. They are festive and yet easy to make. What‘s not to like?
My friend gave me a recipe for spicy berry chutney and told me it disappears in minutes after opening the jar. The recipe was in German (a language I only know a few words and how to construct sentences :))) so I tried to translate it and the minute I saw the word blackberries I remembered the marvelous forest path in the mountains that we often go to on the weekends. At this time of the year it is full of blackberries and they are very juicy and fragrant.
So we went berry picking and came back with the most substantial ingredient for that chutney.
I changed the recipe a bit and here it is! It is super easy and very delicious. Enjoy!
One of the best ways to add instant flavour to dishes is cooking with spices. They not only give a boost to your taste buds but also to your health. I cook with so many spices and often end up filling any empty jar with spices, very few of them match! My jars have their very own box in the corner of my kitchen filled with whole ( I buy in bulk ) and freshly roasted ground spices. I honestly couldn't imagine my life without these little jars.
