Friday food ...
For something new, I used the green tomatoes in another batch of chutney. The beetroot is also destined for chutney, though we sampled one in a risotto the other night.
Vaughan has enjoyed several serves of "fresh" orange-blossom honey - and I have tried a few cups of chai made from the pre-made concentrate. I am not convinced it is a good substitute for the real deal but it is a lot less messy and time-consuming.
Surprisingly the goats cheese is still in the fridge, or was till I put it on the bench for serving tonight - along with some home-made fig paste. Our portion of English marrow is also on tonight's menu, stuffed with a mixture of spicy mince and chickpeas. Hopefully it will pass the taste-test, though I guess I should have a Plan B for Vaughan (and/or generally)!
