Season's Eatings 2011


I was excited to participate for the third year in the foodie gift exchange organized by Katie of Thyme for Cooking.

Last year my gift came from a blogger in Germany. This year I was thrilled to receive a package from Australia - from Kate of Manningroad.


Kate sent me an assortment of Australian spices:
Australian Bush Herbs
Aussie Meat Pie Spice
Australian Bush Pepper Blend
Murray River Pink Salt
Wattleseed Roasted
Mixed Spice

I need to read up on all of these spices to see how they should be used.

She also enclosed a darling little silver spice spoon and a recipe for Lemon Butter, which I intend to make very soon:

180g butter, diced
2 cups caster sugar
3/4 cup lemon juice
2 tsp grated rind
4 eggs, beaten and strained

Combine all ingredients in top half of double saucepan. Stir over simmering water until mixtures thickly coats the back of a wooden spoon. Pour into hot sterilized jars. Seal when cold. Serve on toast, scones, or in pre-made tartlets with coffee shards.

Thank you so much, Kate!

I am so glad the parcel found you, Nancy and arrived in one piece - I do hope you enjoy using your spices in the New Year.
