It’s hard to believe that it’s already September but here’s what’s in my kitchen right now.
There are lots and lots and lots of blackberries. Some to freeze, some for jam, some for crumble, and … some to eat right out of the box. Mr Misky makes wonderful jams.
And soon all of these apples hanging around patiently from our Discovery and Cox apple trees. They’ll be in the kitchen – applesauce, apple crumble, roasted apples, waldorf salad, and Danish-style apple cake. We’re already eating the Discovery apples but the Cox apples are still a few weeks away from being ripe.
And saffron threads! I know that I can buy these at the supermarket but these came in a gorgeous little bottle with gold-colour thread. Who in their right mind could resist such a pretty little package? Not me!
And September is when my outdoors potted basil starts to give up and die, so it’s time to buy a potted plant from the supermarket, and then put it in a nice pot in the kitchen windowsill. I can usually keep one of these plants going for months and months without problem. Some people I know have trouble with white fly in their potted herbs but for some reason I’ve not had that problem … knock on wood.
So that’s what’s happening in my kitchen this month. What’s happening in yours? To join the “IMK” fun, pop over to Fig Jam and Lime Cordial
