Retired No One Told Me!…Fried Insects, Peppercorns and Rosella.

CAROL'S Weekly Update 19th April

Well, this has been an exciting week…Songkran celebrations ( Thai New Year) Sunshine and tropical storms and the discovery of some new foods for me…

Here in Thailand, there are many ways of preserving and salting eggs which have been passed down through the generations some very nice ( as were) these salted eggs some not so nice …I don’t fancy eating embryos however they are dressed up …

Fruity Fridays came around and it was the Rosella Fruit one which I had only previously had as tea but on coming across the fruits discovered that they made a lovely jam and an awesome chutney.

It was then the turn of Sally’s weekly roundup and Mustard seeds were my topic that week… Making mustard is very easy as I soon discovered when I was unable to purchase any here so decided to have a go and make my own.

Songkran and Thai New Year somewhat got in the way so some of my posts fell a little by the wayside.

Healthy Eating and No to Diets was on the subject of snacks … Songkran bought out all the unusual to us westerners bar snacks…Crispy fried insects, pork scratchings, Eggs of all sorts and dried fish which is very popular here…So, of course, I treated you all to a glimpse of those snacks which certainly elicited some comments.

Over to Sally’s for my cookery column where I discussed peppercorns of various colours and a recipe for some lovely Pork in Peppercorn Sauce.

      No, Debby maybe a little richer yolk than a chicken egg …I think much of the taste depends on what they are fed on…Most of the poultry here just forage naturally and are free range 🙂
