Local food-related events
November 25, 11am -3pm. You are invited to join us for a casual conversation around local food issues and opportunities at Red Box Winery in Kangaroo Ground. A barbeque is booked. Antipasto and cheese plates are available to purchase or bring along your own picnic. We hope that you can join us and share your ideas for local food in 2013. RSVP – Robyn email: email@example.com.
Sawdust or other mulch for paths? The Diamond Valley Library Community garden is about to add 3 small keyhole paths to their garden. Does anyone have any surplus mulch suitable? One or two chaff bags full would probably do. Offers gratefully received by Robyn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beetroot and chocolate mincemeat for Christmas tarts? A yummy variation of the traditional version can be found on this Todmordern site. www.incredible-edible-todmorden.co.uk/blogs/beetroot-and-chocolate-mincemeat.
I was given a radish today, freshly picked from a friend’s Eltham garden. It looks like a white carrot, not round like those in the feature picture from Milkwood’s blog. It has the hot radish taste, but fibrous chewy texture of a carrot.
