Four photos with nothing whatsoever in common. Well, okay, they’re all taken here at The Big Garden, true. And they’re all portrait-format photos. But other than that … just random niceness!
Everything on that plate is home grown! * First tomatoes of the year ; and first swiss chard, too – in the tortilla. Even the Lanazarote-style mocha was made at home with our own ingredients.
*Okay, not the olives!
Denise: As this growing season got, well, growing, we decided we’d no longer sell any of our garden produce. Instead, we’d learn to make full use of it ourselves. All of it! Everything! So now that it’s well and truly tomato season, here’s one of the many things we do with two large greenhouses full of ripening tomatoes, along with our own grown onion, rosemary and … well that would be giving away our secrets! Passata!
Every now and then we buy a commercial bottle of sauce to (a) remind ourselves how cheap and sugary they are, and (b) – more importantly – to expand our stock of sauce bottles!
