In My Kitchen: November 2013

Thank you Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for allowing me to participate In My Kitchen November 2013. This month, in my kitchen are…

rosies-gf-biscuits

We continue to watch Recipe to Riches, but our enthusiasm is starting wane. We only bought one product from the show this month – Rosie’s Kitchen almond meringue biscuits. They were nice and had a great texture, but I don’t think they were special enough that I’d buy them again.

herbies-november

Herbie’s Spices had four Australian spices for the month – akudjura (bush tomato), lemon myrtle, saltbush and wattleseed. I’ve been experimenting with them all, and we tried the spicy nut recipe on the back of the saltbush packet. I also cooked a chicken and akurjura rissotto based again on the recipe on the back of the packet. I have been enjoying lemon myrtle on fish and particularly liked tuna and lemon myrtle penne.

james-squire-cider

I have been enjoying different ciders, and my favourite at the moment is James Squire’s orchard crush apple cider. I am also fond of the perry – a traditional cloudy pear cider. I made an apple cider fruit loaf with the first one.

felties-two

I am still making felt vegetables for one lucky niece. This month I’ve made beans, carrot, daikon, radish and zucchini. I’m yet to make some felt fruit and that will be next.

I enjoyed watching the final episodes of The Great British Bake Off, but I can’t believe we are three years behind! I wrote a book review on the The Great Australian Bake Off, and I also wrote a book review of Bill’s Italian Food.

Thank you Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for organsing In My Kitchen November 2013.
