I have some pots with different chilies and I’m beginning to to pick them now. The above ones are serrano chilies and I think they are supposed to be hot, but they are not.

I also have jalapeño chilies, which I have already picked and pickled. They are not hot either, but then they are not supposed to be hot. Then I have anaheim chilies, not supposed to be hot either, and they are not, and then I have thai chilies which are supposed to be hot … and they are not. I am beginning to think it is a bit strange.

I have a lot of tiny dark purple figs on my tree right now.

So far, I have made this cake with them, I have spiced them up like this and we have had them on a pizza with fresh goats cheese too. All really yummy.

Think there will be enough figs left to make a glass of jam too.

What I ate

cod roe trousers
wood sorrel (I think)
cod roe sandwich
when I were in Copenhagen.

It is season for cod roe, yum, and it looks like the green leaves (wikipedia tells me they could be called wood sorrel in English) are used very much these days to give taste to salads and sauces a.o.

cake and coffee
and much too much cake. The one above was a delicious raspberries pie.

Sweets experiment

white chocolate
almond w white chocolate
Above you see the result of my latest food experiment. Almonds covered with white chocolate (mixed with a bit of grated lemon zest) and rolled in licorice root powder. They were very nice. I made them for one of the Christmas days, so it is already quite some time ago. Hmm, time to think up new food experiments as it makes cooking more fun, I think.
