Posts Tagged ‘Ecology mugs’

In my kitchen…

…are saffron crocus bulbs, a gift from my lovely friend Becca, the InTolerant Chef.  I could be picking my own saffron next year!

In my kitchen…

…are some new textured mugs.  Made by Ecology Homewares, each design comes in a box of four, but I split packs with my mum and Uncle Steve (Pete’s brother), so that we could all have one of each.  They worked out at about $5 per mug.

The Bubble is my current favourite – it reminds me of old photos of the moon…

…although most people seem to be drawn to the regularity of the Mesh mug…

…except for Big Boy, who prefers this design known as Sticks

In my kitchen…

…is a sized up version of my ricotta tart, made with double the ingredients and baked in a 10″ fluted flan tin with a removable base…

In my kitchen…

…is a large slab of caramelised white chocolate.  I re-melted the jarred chocolate and tempered it with more white chocolate…

About a third of the bar has been cut up into chips. Now I just need to find a good use for them!

In my kitchen…

…is a batch of rhubarb and raspberry jam, made with our backyard rhubarb and the frozen raspberries we bought from Chef Express in Marrickville.  It’s one of Pete’s most popular preserves…

In my kitchen…

…is an indulgence in tomatoes.  We were really missing good tomatoes, so we bought this mixed box from an expensive fruit market.  It was worth it too, as every single tom was delicious.  The box had an assortment of red and yellow cherries, red and yellow Bella Rossas and Black Zebras…

The Black Zebras were a new variety to me – slightly tart, thick walled and well flavoured…

In my kitchen…

…is the pomegranate powder I bought at the Aum Spice centre.  I haven’t used it yet, but I told Choclette I’d take a photo for her.  It’s pleasantly acidic …

In my kitchen…

…is yet another gift from the lovely Moo. We’d had a discussion about cloudberries, and Moo’s wife Jane found these jars of cloudberry jam at Ikea in Adelaide…

The golden jam has an unusual flavour – it’s a little tangy, quite sweet and filled with crunchy pips.

Thanks Moo, for an opportunity to try this elusive food!
