In Season • April
A funny time of year… It’s a funny time of year, the weather jumps from cool back to hot as the seasons try to sort themselves out. The garden is behaving a bit oddly in the weather too. Our passion fruit vine is like a scene from Day of the Triffids, it’s taking over everything and is loaded with huge green passion fruit which seem determined not to ripen. When they do, look out, there will be a load of passion fruit recipes.
I am excited that the winter vegies are starting to creep back onto the “in season” list (with the exception of brussels sprouts…I know, I know, all you sprouts fans, bear with me as I explore one of the ONLY foods I struggle to eat…)
This month I am looking forward to celebrating not only beautiful autumn produce, but fabulous Australian pork. To be honest, I celebrate pork in one form or another several times a week, but this month I’ll be talking about it a lot more.
In particular, how to identify real Aussie pork and some great ways to prepare it. And one of those ways will be my traditional Easter pork roast – with extra crackle…it is Easter after all!
