Once again it's Three Things Thursday, where I highlight three things that ran on the site recently that inspired, intrigued or impressed me.
Mouse Melon Cornichons Tiny, sour, unbearably cute mouse melons, also called Mexican sour gherkins, have been growing in popularity. Turns out they make the best crunchy quick pickles. Flavored with tarragon instead of dill, they make cornichons. From Culinaria Eugenius.
Chocolate and Avocado Spread I have to admit this one gave me pause at first, but avocado can be a good base for creamy spreads. This grown up chocolate and avocado spread from Larder Love has a chilli kick!
