Our vegie garden is becoming increasingly productive, but with sixteen cumquat trees planted as part of "the Villandry Potager look" we were facing either a huge glut or more cumquat marmalade than we could eat in this lifetime. Fortunately local Mudgee food producer Angela Leonard came to the rescue and now uses our cumquats in her fabulous range of products. In return for being the official supplier of Cumquats we get jars of Angela's Edibles. So far we have feasted on Spiced Pickled Figs, Rhubarb Jam, Beetroot Relish, Pickled Limes and Pickled Lemons. Oh yes and of course, Angela's Cumquat Marmalade, made with fruit from The Drip.
Check out "Angela's Edibles" on the link to the Mudgee Fine Foods site. The food scene here is going from strength to strength with an ever-increasing range of local products. On Saturday I did all the shopping for the night's dinner at the Mudgee Farmers Market. Very nice to be able to prepare an entire (and, if I may so myself, excellent) meal from local produce accompanied by a good Mudgee wine.
