We bought a jug blender recently. I am not a big fan of too many kitchen appliances taking space in the kitchen but I really wanted this blender to make fresh juices on weekends and so we have been juicing a lot recently. Every saturday and sunday fresh juices for breakfast it is. It is also so much fun! Not too much fun for the neighbours though as the blender is quite noisy. My favourite fresh juice still is carrot, orange and ginger juice. What are your favourite combinations for fresh fruit or vegetable juices? Let us know!
I want to share this simple pickled pumpkin recipe with you. I thought I didn’t like pickled pumpkin until I tried this recipe: pumpkin cooked with vinegar, sugar and ginger. My mum gave me this recipe and I modified it a little, adding my ginger.
It is a nice little snack and great to serve with an aperitif.
I am still keen to do everything with pumpkin, although the city starts to become Christmassy. The Christmas markets have started yesterday but I am not yet in the mood for that. It is still autumn, people!
