It’s been very hot again today and we’ve stayed indoors most of the time, keeping out of the sun until it’s cool enough to go out for a swim in the lake at Vailhan. On an aubergine theme again, I put together a dish which I’m sure must have been made by someone else before me, using just two of the 20 or so aubergines waiting for me in the kitchen. I’ve put the full recipe on my Food from the Mediterranean blog.
Chicken with aubergine, red peppers and mozarella
And to follow we had some grapes from our Muscat d’Hambourg vine. This is the first year we’ve had edible grapes on it – they’re small, but sweet and full of promise for a better crop next year as the vine matures.
Big Man has been sun drying our white muscat grapes (not sure of exact variety) and I just pinched one for quality control purposes….wonderful!
Are you making your own raisins? How wonderful! Muscat grapes are usually very sweet – they’ll be delicious.
Wow hasn’t it been hot. I only got out into the garden well after 7pm. Diane
