New Norfolk Market fare

For the first time in ages we had a Saturday morning free so finally managed to get in to the New Norfolk Market.

Sampled some great food, such as an early lunch from the Chilean food stall.

Watched on as bagels were being prepared at another. Looked delicious but we were too full to even share one between us.

Never mind, inspired by what we saw and with a special visitor coming for afternoon tea, I raced home and prepared, boiled and baked some immediately.

They came out the oven just as he arrived.

Served with that Ajvar, slow cooked corned silverside, fresh beetroot from the garden, pesto, labna, pickled Mangel Wurzel slices, pickled red cabbage, pickled onions, pickled peas, sliced fresh tomatoes, garden greens and boiled free range eggs – not too bad at all for a quick snack.

“No dinner for me tonight” said our visitor as he left just now.

Just the words I love to hear.

    Hi Sally, I have be a fan of your books for some years. By chance I have discovered that we have recently ( moved in last Monday) bought close to you. Neighbours welcomed us with a bucket of plums. Unpacked the pressure canner and today made plum jam, Asian plum sauce and bottled plums. Hope our paths cross and I look forward to being inspired by your blog.
    PS. Half bucket of Nashi pears ( no juicer unfortunately) Any suggestions?

      Well how about that! Welcome to the neighbourhood! I would make spiced nashi fruit I think. If you have my book “A Year in a Bottle” or “Complete Preserves” use the recipe for Spiced Pears, substituting the nashi fruit for pears. If you don’t have the book I can send the recipe to you.

        Thanks Sally,
        I have the preserves book so can use that recipe. The plum jam was also from that book. Keen to get a year in a bottle, does that cover. pressure canning. or water bath? Have a curry from your slow cooker book for dinner tonight. Thanks, Collette

        Hi Colette – no, it doesn’t cover pressure canning. I don’t pressure can jams and chutneys as the balance of ingredients in my recipes ensure that preservation is ample without doing so. Water bathing (bottling) is covered in my book “Complete Preserves” and also “A Year on the Farm”. Best wishes, Sally
