Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
Rhubarb Syrup: ginger and rhubarb syrup ready for a fab breakfast or an amazing cocktail
Honey, lemon and thyme infused blueberry jam.
Vanilla Salt: grey salt scented with vanilla and perfect for dipping strawberries into.
Rhubarb Pickles: spiced, herbed and ready to rock your cheese board.
My first taste was with cocktails and just straight out of the jar. So, incredibly delicious. When I was in a more civilized mood I made a pretty salad, dotted with goat cheese and croutons before drizzling with some of the pickling juice. Umm wow!
Goose Confit: salt, spice and sugar cured goose, slow cooked in fat. Sounds complicated but is just delicious.
A great, quick appetizer-beer and maple syrup mustard made in seconds and great on everything.
Winter Marmalade: blood oranges and whiskey to top your morning toast with.
Jardiniere: super tasty refrigerator pickles that are a welcome addition to any charcuterie plate or as an instant dinner side.
Persimmon butter: Apples, pears and persimmons hang out in the slowcooker with honey and lemon juice for a butter that is as great to give as it is to serve.
