My little sprig of jasmine bloomed yesterday. The first whiff jsut sends me back to all my past spring/summers. It is somehwat apparent that the jasmine bloom is earlier and earlier in the year…..I recall it truly was a late spring/summer occurance before..and here we are in August. Or maybe that’s just the north coast. Are the bees awake from their winter hiatus and ready to lap up the sweet nectar? I hope so. Got to protect the bees. We need them.
Without them we don’t eat most of our vegetables and our fruit. But I digress!
COME TO Lismore Handmade Market on Sept 6 for the Spring market.
Talk about a taste sensation. Get to Lismore Carboot Market next time and hunt out Lotsanuts Natural Liquorice. Handmade by a local chef, and using natual real proper liquorice root, aniseed myrtle, molasses, and the quirky addition of macadamia and pistachio nuts (other buts available too), then rolled in cinnamon and, wait for it, then coffee. Whoa! loving that. You don’t chew on it, you suck on it…then you chew up the nuts, then you suck on it again, then all the flavours work some kinda magic in your mouth and you reach for another piece and then you dance and want to tell all your friends about it. Basic packaging but heck, it’s a mere wrapper of joy.
Grazza, be nice and I will share some with you.
