Things to do with Garden Eggs

by on October 23, 2013
 

The long-promised round up of garden egg posts.

Delayed by a serious bout of the ‘flu which kept me off work, off play and unable to present the compilation when I planned. I’m still a bit weak.

Only a few more additions to the pickles, and chutneys and sauces.

I ‘made’ a new chutney from sweet, ripe plantains, boiled  and combined with the green eggplant chutney, and spiced with rings of red hot chili peppers.

Ingredients for Plantain & Garden Egg Chutney

I liked the result with many flavours: sweet, soft, spicy.

Plantain & Garden Egg Chutney

I attempted a quick stir-fry of garden eggs and green beans, flavoured with a green Thai curry sauce. With rice, for lunch – it was very well received.
