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.
Winter is definitely marmalade season in NZ and this year our citrus trees have given us an abundance of lemons, mandarins, grapefruits, limes, and oranges.
I love the idea of marmalade, although I rarely eat it myself because it's too sweet for me, and I enjoy making jars as gifts. It's also lovely to illustrate ;o)
inspired by vintage advertisements of canned foods from the 1950's, I wanted to create a fun kitschy vibrant picnic featuring an array of delights such as elaborately moulded jello, chiffon pie, and shrimp cocktail. Of course no picnic would be complete without ELLIE B'S BAKE BEAN CASSEROLE SPARKLER.
One of my favorite parts about vintage food advertisements are the strange recipes included alongside the ad, so I just had to come up with a whacky dish to accompany my new fictitious bean brand! Of course you can alternatively eat Ellie B's beans straight from the can, and be sure to bring extra to share with the ants!
