A sad thing about moving house at this time of year is that I didn’t get to harvest the vegetables which I had lovingly grown. Thankfully my mum came to visit last week bearing gifts from her own garden. This picture was taken about a week ago and I have just polished off the runner beans, and only have a few apples and over-sized courgettes (zucchini) left.
So how have I used this great abundance?
The courgettes I have of course stuffed – I will share this with you later in the week. I have also fried them in butter and garlic as a side-dish and ‘hidden’ them in other dishes, some sweet and some savoury.
The apples are delicious eaters and I have been munching on them as they are, as well as making rather wonderful cake with them.
The new potatoes were mostly a lovely variety called Pink Fur Apple; they are delicious just boiled and then smothered in butter and pepper, although I also had a go at roasting them.
… and of course everything has been served with runner beans (apart from the cake).
I still miss my garden.
