January 2016

By Terry Wilcher on 1 January 2016

January has been a month of harvesting, pickling, and drying here in the Lazy River kitchen. We have been racing the cockies for figs and grapes on a daily basis. I want to make sultanas and jam, but they seem to prefer them fresh for breakfast.

The kitchen herb garden has thankfully survived through the blistering hot days we experienced through early January and is now providing us with an abundance of fresh produce. Last year we planted a cumquat tree which is just beginning to show its first signs of blossom. I am really looking forward to our first harvest and these initial blossoms are promising and so pretty.

If you follow our Instagram you may have seen some samples of our 2016 menu. We have really enjoyed creating, decorating and eating our way through the menu this week; it has definitely been worth the few extra kilos! Now to turn the blackberries I picked from the boat house vine yesterday into jam.

Bye for now
