So here we have in my kitchen:
|as per the label:=)|
Well, you can see what this is - Dutch cocoa of the black persuasion. I haven't opened it yet, but I believe it's very dark in colour. Must give it a go soon. Apparently, you have to mix it with ordinary cocoa so it doesn't overtake the flavour of your bake.
Off I went to visit the local Japanese grocery store again a while back. I had to buy Kewpie mayo and wasabi paste naturally, but I couldn't resist a few more mystery items like the sesame seed dressing and the strangely sweet rice crackers. And you get 19 crackers - why?? It's like Lucky Dip here!
|oh yes, another book!|
I can tell you nothing about this one yet, as I haven't even cracked it open. Looks interesting though. Fishman - great name for a memoir with recipes.
|take a guess!:-)|
These are from a country store down south. I love that their products are housemade, so it's worth it to me to buy them online now and again. Love those freckles! And the tomato relish is a cracker.
Mr P. and I went to the Bakery Lane Bake Off recently. We got a goodie bag each, filled with the items above. There's only so much unicorn confetti one girl can use, so I gave most of it away. And butter popcorn flavouring? What on earth do you do with that? :-) (The Queen factory is just a bit up the road from us, so I love that these are local products.)
|gifted fruit from friends|
Our neighbour has kindly given me some of her lemons, and a friend has handed over some more. Along with gorgeously ripe Hass avocadoes from their neighbours' tree. Lucky me! I made a splendid guacamole last night with the lovely ripe, creamy, organic avoes. Delish! Funny how they look like they've gone off, so black and squishy but no - they are at their peak. Just like a good passionfruit.
