Remember this jar?

Strawberry and Brandy Preserve

Finally opened.

Strawberry and Brandy Preserve

Consistency more liquid-y than “jammy”, no matter.

Toasted the “rustic” bun.


Split (like an English muffin).

Slathered butter, back in the toaster to melt, one side just butter, the other side butter and the strawberry preserve.

Toast with Butter and Strawberry (and Brandy) Preserve

Nom! Not too much brandy taste, guess the alcohol was cooked out, that’s okay, doc says alcohol and The Mouse’s meds don’t mix anyways. Still tasty. Will try and purchase from the vendor as often as the pocketbook permits (gotta support local small business).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Farmers market buy.

Strawberry and Brandy Preserve


May Contain Alcohol?

Hee hee.

Vendor works out of her kitchen. Mixes whatever she thinks will work, no formal culinary training. Wouldn’t mind helping in her kitchen.

Needed a bread worthy of her efforts.

From the Grocery Store

The JJ2 square bread would work, but The Mouse felt needed something more … hearty and rustic (or dainty like croissants). The Mouse’s opinion the texture of the square bread a little too “refined”.

Will update when opened and nommed. đŸ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

Crunchy Stuff

Usually, it’s The Mouse that likes crunchy stuff. This time, it’s The Cat.

Our semi-regular Sunday visit to Ruby Tuesday at the mall (after farmers market). The Cat tries fried onions from the salad bar, instant like.

Picked up from the grocery store.


Now, The Cat can have crunchy stuff at home. đŸ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

Breadfruit “Hummus”

Another farmers market try.


Four flavors: regular, turmeric, dried tomato, and sweet potato. The Cat choose turmeric.

Turmeric Breadfruit Hummus

Whole wheat triscuits.


The try.

Triscuit and Breadfruit Hummus

Texture is smoother than chickpea hummus (not as “gritty”/”sandy”). The Mouse thinks the turmeric kinda overpowered the breadfruit taste. Still good. Next time try the dried tomato flavor.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Jus’ a few things.

Bamboo Shoot in Chili Oil

The Cat likes as a garnish to her soup noodle bowl. Should’ve been a panda. Hee hee.

Fried Chili in Oil

Try try. Not sure where this condiment falls on the Scoville scale, it’s not supposed to be too hot. We’ll see, cross your fingers.

One review thinks this is the next Sriracha sauce.

Apple Vinegar

Made in Taiwan. Not apple cider. Store owner said it’s sweeter than apples cider vinegar. Good to drink, vegetable and fruit salads.

Tried it on an avocado, tomato, sweet onion salad last night.

Avocado, Tomato, Sweet Onion Salad

Very yum! No oil, the avocado provided enough fat, just a sprinkle of Kaua‘i salt to finish. A good try try. đŸ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.
