Agbalumo Gin & Tonic

by Kitchen Butterflyon April 21, 2017

In the Middle: With my Agbalumo Wine

by Kitchen Butterflyon March 17, 2017
The internet is a wonderful place. I’m one of those people who recognises it’s dangers but benefits so much from its abundance.

In Season Pickles: Carrots, Agbalumo, Orange

by Kitchen Butterflyon February 1, 2017
One way to enjoy fruits and veg in season – carrots, agbalumo, oranges – is to explore a variety of uses – fresh, cooked, preserved. I especially like pickles – they add bright flavour to dishes – a bit sour, tart, sharp even, not to mention the burst of colour.  Pickling isn’t an oft-used preservation […]
