On the Season Merry-go-round | Summer to Autumn

Please accept my apologies for being quiet of late. We have now changed to a new host server. This took a little maintenance time but we are now back on air with a vengeance!

To this…   …crisp cool mornings, warm shorter days, golden rusty hues, shadows leaves a’fallin. I love Autumn. It is my favourite time of the year. What is your favourite season? images: istock

It’s delicate, petite leaves are sweet and tender with a mild nutty flavour. Mache has varied uses. It can be eaten raw as a salad vegetable, lightly blanched, used as a flavouring for stews or casseroles and finally as a decorative touch to a dish. It remains a popular herb in Europe where it is … Continue Reading

How Sweet It Is.

I had been anticipating my first taste. The greenish grey, cloudy, amber orb clung to the shiny plastic spoon like a petulant child unwilling to leave its mother. Would it taste sweet? Would it cling to the roof of my mouth? Would I like the taste? What would its taste remind me of? Today, I am writing about one thing – honey, a food item found in most pantries around the world. This delicious golden puddle can be used for a multitude of applications from sweetening a cup of tea to soothing a sore throat. It is the most loved … Continue Reading
