What’s up in my Kitchen: September 2016 edition
Another month, not in MY kitchen but in my friend’s kitchen. I already told you about Vicki’s beautiful pineapple house. Let me show you what was going on in her kitchen while I was there visiting. Picture that: 2 food bloggers in the same kitchen inspiring each other and cooking for the family.
North Queensland offers a lot of tropical giants and juicy fruits. I was amazed by the tropical fruits and veggies. The farmer market was a very nice walk.
Above are actually green beans called snake beans! How funny! They are 4x longer than the usual ones I get in France.
The next pic is of a very decadent donuts, you can inject chocolate with a seringe in the middle! So attractive that they sold out all the cakes by 11 o’clock!
Also, we were lucky enough to be invited at Vicki’s lovely neighbor party. They had a pig (the entire 33kg pig) slowly cooked in a wooden box. It was an incredible thing to see. You really have to know your business to cut that pig into pieces. The meat was very tender and tasty. It might looks a bit strange on the picture but it was delicious.
I had the chance to have a slow cooker tasting beef stew from our friend Sammie recipe. Now I want a slow cooker of course!!!! I’m such a child when it comes to kitchen toys!
I cooked a Salmon Blanquette for my lovely aussie foster family.
I even cooked some Tomato and Feta Clafoutis for the kids lunch box.
Passion Fruit Jam Recipe
Just a little recipe to finish this post. I’ll definitly plant and grow those fruits when I can. They make a very original and tasty jam.
- 600 g of passion fruit juice
- 450g of sugar (brown sugar makes it more tasty)
- 1 apple cut in dices
- Extract the juice from the passion fruits.
- Filter it to get rid of the seeds.
- Put the juice, sugar and apple into a big pan to boil.
- When boiling, stir constantly to avoid accidents in your kitchen with sugar all over the stove.
- After 30 min it should be ready.
- Put some drops of jam on a plate. It should not be too liquid.
- Fill some jars, close them and stock them.
