Fried Green Tomatoes with Remoulade


It was a busy Sunday morning here, with a lot of dashing around, so we were grateful that Caitlyn thought to prepare us a 'Southern' brunch.

We have had a bumper crop of green zebra tomatoes this year. Caitlyn selected the larger and firmer ones from the vine as they need to hold together.

As a Brit, of a certain age, the phrase 'Fried Green Tomatoes' is indelibly linked to 'at the Whistlestop Cafe', the UK title of the 1991 film, starring Jessica Tandy and Kathy Bates, based on Fannie Flagg's bestselling novel.

Plum & Cabernet d'Anjou Jam \ Jelly

Plum and Cabernet d'Anjou Jam


Our first 'Fruits of the Garden' course has begun and this recipe was the first of the jams that we created.

A hint of wine can impart a sophisticated and adult flavour to jam. I discovered a fairly ancient bottle of Cabernet d'Anjou recently. It was past its best for drinking, but made an excellent concentrate for the jam.

We used small golden plums picked from the Circle of Misse garden. They have a sweet and intense flavour, but one must not forget that once heated the skin will raise the tartness of the fruit.

Squash from our garden cut in half


I ate this dish in Barbuto, an Italian restaurant in Manhattan (review) a couple of years ago. When I cut this squash open the other day, I immediately thought of it.

I used the squash straight from my garden, but it is excellent with acorn or butternut squash.
