The courgettes and squashes have been coming on a treat thanks to the alternating wet/hot (32 degrees this afternoon) weather that we have been experiencing recently. I made a courgette and tomato chutney the other evening and tonight, Andy has made a lamb and yellow courgette curry (the homemade/freshly ground spice mix is top secret!) which, as you can see, is very colourful.We also collected another basketful of pears... ...which will be transformed into 'blushing pears' which is a rather nice pickle that is an ideal accompaniment to things such as cold turkey, game pie and mature cheeses or paté - funnily enough, it should reach full maturity at Christmas!
