So it is that time again, when bloggers around the world come together and share whats new in their kitchen.
In My Kitchen ...
There is a this Vegeta Jar. I picked it up from a charity shop. I particularly liked the vegetable illustrations on it.
Some Sowan's Roasted Buckwheat. I have mentioned before that I am trying to incorporate more grains in my diet a change from rice for evening meals and pasta salads for work.
I wish I had found this Coconut Butter a couple of weeks back when I made some vegan Chocolate fudge. I did not have any and substituted cacao butter in the recipe, but I have it now and will make another vegan fudge recipe soon.
I picked up these Dutch wooden biscuit/cookie stamps from a Boot market. The elderly lady sold them to me for £1 for both.
She said she had only used them once and advised to flour them well when pressing into the dough.
We have been enjoying some bread from local independent shops, the name of this artisan bread has escaped my memory.
D thought this Beetroot Bread was gimmicky when I picked it up on a recent trip to Bath, but he quickly changed his mind and was impressed when we sliced into it, not only for the colour, but it did taste of beetroot too.
Not the best photograph, but I have been enjoying the sweetness of seedless black grapes lately. And behind it purple basil.
I picked up this Instant Reishi Latte when we went to the Bristol VegFest last month. The reishi tastes a bit like licorice. The purple Tea with Blueberry was a bit of a disappointment for me, its from M&S.
My blogger friend and Eat Your Greens co-host The VegHog sent me a little gift as she left the UK for Denmark to start a new life. Above is a Tea towel with the words 'Eat Green Think Green'.
The VegHog also send me some dried chanterelle mushrooms, Licorice sticks and Sea Buckthorn Powder which I am especially excited about. I have had fresh buckthorn a long time back when I lived in Scotland and used to forage for it there, but I have never had it in powder form. I hope to repay the compliment with a small Thank you in return.
I recently discovered these Hippeas Crisps. They are made from chickpeas and I do like chickpeas. these were really good. The Pepper power certainly had some heat, so watch out!
I am sharing this with Sherry Pickings for In My Kitchen series. Its one of my favourite blog events to join in with as I get to nosy in other peoples kitchen, please do join in.
