Weird, but it works.

15 Nov

DSCF0277There is a church just a couple of doors down from Tech Support’s work, and every other Thursday they have a craft stall which sells the usual sorts of things: knitted coathangers, those freaky Dolly Varden toilet-roll covers, and home-made jams and relishes. The other day T.S. brought home a jar of Pumpricot jam for me. It’s a very odd combination, but by damn if it doesn’t work – you can quite clearly taste both the pumpkin and the beautiful big blobs of apricot, but the thing that brings it all together is ginger. Deee-licious!

How about you? Do you know of any weird-but-wonderful food combinations?

    I like avocado and vegemite. On bread, toast or vitawheats. Yum.

    Peanut butter and bacon sandwiches.

      Ooooh! I am so going to have to try that – I have a pet theory that EVERYTHING tastes better with bacon (the same holds true for sweet chili sauce).

    Peanut butter and sultans

    Salmon with maple syrup baked on a cedar piece of wood in the oven – called planked salmon – mmm – sweet smoky and salmon – weird and nice!

      I’ve had planked salmon, though not with the maple syrup… Interesting.

    Hunter swore by pickled cucumber dipped in soy sauce last might. I wasn’t game to try it!

      Wow! How long did it take to un-pucker his mouth?

    I used to love melon and lemon jam as a kid – it’s the kind of thing you can only buy handmade these days! Who has the space or the time to grow jam melons?
