A very colourful day at the market today featuring a lot of purple.
We had "Blue Saphire" potatoes, purple skinned Kohl Rabi, purple flowering chives and even the new season garlic bulbs were flushed a little purple.
We also had coloured chard in vibrant magenta, orange, salmon and saffron yellow for cutting up into salads.
The little blackboards on loan from the guys at Resurekt worked a treat.
The soap sold very well too and I'm afraid the "Brown Windsor", "Savon Edifiante" and "Peace on Earth" are all sold out. I only have "Rosemary and Thyme" and "Lavender, Lime and Bergamot" and plain tallow left.
I have had a few customers come back to buy more of the pure tallow and they have said how soft it makes their skin. Some have said the smell was a bit different at first but they love the way their skin feels and have come back for more. It is the soap that Craig and I prefer to use too but it's not for everyone.
I'll be packing him a good supply before he heads bush.
As for the rest of today....
I have a pig's head and four trotters in the fridge and would love some guidance and suggestions about what to do with them. I have never cooked them before. I have studied some of my old house-lore books and the suggestion is to slow cook, shred the meat and then put in a weighted mould to make brawn.
Any thoughts, suggestions, ideas...
I'm all ears.
