Preserved limes and confit garlic

It’s that time of the month again so without further ado… In my kitchen is a jar of preserved limes and a jar of garlic confit.

Mum and I went to the Noosa Farmer’s markets on Sunday and got some treasures (I’ll share them all later in the week). The lime man told us they made a huge special order of preserved limes for a restaurant during the Noosa Food & Wine festival.

They had a little left over so we got lucky! I haven’t tried it yet but I’m thinking I’ll make some sort of tagine with it.

The garlic confit is amazing. I wouldn’t be too nice to live with for a few hours but I could quite easily eat the whole jar on its own. It was delicious spread on the 3 cheese bread we also bought for lunch.

Mandarins and oranges

In my kitchen is a fruit bowl full of mandarins and bush lemons fresh from my great aunt’s tree. Mum went to visit her last week and  picked the treasures. The lemons might not look pretty but they are so juicy. I’m on the hunt for mandarin recipes now.

Banana jam

In my kitchen is a little jar of banana jam that mum and dad brought back from a recent trip to Fiji. It’s only a little jar so I’m still brainstorming the perfect way to savour it. I’ll probably end up spreading it on a crumpet.

Deep loose base cake tin

In my kitchen is a new deep round cake tin. I have quite a few idea for cake creations in this guy.

Strawberry and macadmia fairy floss

In my kitchen is a tub of strawberry and macadmia fairy floss – another purchase from the markets. I’ll tell you a more about it when I blog about the markets.

50 Shades of Grey

Ok so I know it’s not a food item but it is in my kitchen. I’ve discovered that reading makes risotto cook faster!

What about you? What’s going on in your kitchen this month?
