With such an abundance of lemons now, why not put some juice aside for when they are gone-gone-gonsky! Yes, you can freeze as cubes but I experimented last season with a big batch of limes. Squeezed, strained and put into clean bottles the juice kept for 5 months. I loved the convenience of zipping to the fridge for a slurp of fresh juice to add to Lemon, Honey and Soy chicken or to make a quick salad dressing with Macadamia Oil and a glug of honey. I’ve just squeezed a large bottle of citrusy juice from this recent gift of produce.
We count ourselves very lucky to have very generous friends who are so happy to share the bounty of their home gardens. The Little Cellar Rat uses lemons and limes all year round and oranges and mandarins when they are in season …. and that’s right now! A big THANK YOU TO our generous friend DD for these flavoursome golden balls and to R and M for the cackleberries from the Girls. I used both in a yummy LEMON DELICiOUS... and it more than lives up to its name!
When it’s crisp and chilly outside, that means hearty warming dishes suited to big bowls, soup spoons and chunky bread. Time to get up close and chatty with your local butcher and ask his advice about anything with a bone in it. The cheeper cuts of meat just beg to be left to their own devices in a slow, low oven and a heavy pot with a lid. Use basic old favourite recipes but don’t forget to add some glugs of red wine, tomatoes, fresh herbs, a little chilli and paprika. Hearty dishes just suited to one of our HILL OF PROMISE REDS…..Jabiru Grenache and Blackbird Shiraz if dry is your choice or Nanna Gelso blend of CS,M and S if sweeter is more your line.

Winter has finally arrived and touching all with his long thin fingers but Brother sun hasn’t deserted us. You can still enjoy his company on the sunny cottage veranda, seated in a comfortable steamer chair, catching up on that promised novel or flicking through DELICIOUS and ITALIANICIOUS magazines.
It’s in our blood….. sharing a long table with friends, feasting on delicious locally sourced dishes accompanied by our artisan wines.
That was the FEAST OF THE 3 SAINTS on the first Sunday in May. It’s become a tradition now and you can see why!

Have enjoyed staying on a previous occasion.
Got the chance to come back again.
Thoroughly enjoyed it all over again: timber floors, hand crafted furniture, breakfast on the verandah, all the elements of a lovely chance to r-e-l-a-x. The complimentary port was the finishing touch!

We all lead such busy lives and the chance to disregard the time, sleep when you want, talk and read and laze about with a bottle of wine and a good read.
A Queenslander verandah with a view to green hills and fat cattle grazing, the occasional birdsong and perfume from the lush garden … just the ingredients for a salve for the soul.
Thanks Mary and Terry.
