This month's Spice Trail is different, on two accounts:
For the first time, the challenge is hosted outside Bangers 'n Mash and the spice of choice is associated with sweet recipes.
May's spice is:
The choice was motivated by all the fresh flavours that early spring brings us. Fruits desserts, ice-creams, all delights enhanced by vanilla and then there is the prospect of outdoors eating, what would a picnic be without cakes?
I have to confess that there is a hidden agenda, we are very curious to see which savoury dish you are going to enter (if any).....
This month's Prize
We've have teamed up with a small family-run company Naturally Good Food which "offers the best wholefoods and free-from foods to match your larder and your purse".
The company was born out of need for good value healthy food to feed the kids. it started as a local bulk buying group. Decades later, Cathal and Sue operate a leading wholefood shop on the web from a modern eco buiding near Rugby. The scale may have changed but the company is still very much customers focused and the owners easy to talk to.
One lucky winner chosen by the team at Naturally Good Food will receive a selection of Steenberg organic essences:
- Almond Extract - 100ml -
- Orange Flower Water 100ml -
- Rose Water -100ml -
- and of course Vanilla Extract- 100ml
So to your pods and see you on the May's entries list.
