It was a long, hot day in the kitchen, yesterday and, happily, quite a lot to show for it. In addition to the usual koeksisters and rolls, a batch of fresh peach chutney and Andalusian gazpacho.
The red cabbage is now ready, and along with the chutney and new batch of chilli jam, was labelled and priced.
I did have company. Gandalf pretended to guard the realm. Fat lot of good that was: someone brazenly, but hastily, helped themselves to chillies. They were just beginning to ripen and no, not the fruit, they ripped up the plants.
The resident amphibian kept thyme and I had a visit from the chick children which are now fewer and 10 days old.
Our swallows oversee everything including the sunset.
My last kitchen act for the day, 12 hours after it began, was supper.
Fish, for Friday....
PS. The chutney recipe will get a refresh on the blog in a the next few weeks.
Until next time, be well
