11th April 2013 - Veronica Farm Fudge.
some bags of Veronica Farm Fudge at the local produce market
on St Mary's last week. I discovered this little gem way back
when it was made by a local youngster, and only (I think)
sold on a stall outside their family farm. Every single trip
to Bryher saw me heading for the stall to buy a bag. I forced
myself to curb the habit a little once it became more widely
available, but I'd still wholeheartedly recommend it if you
are looking for a sweet treat, or a lovely gift to take home.
ocassion, we tried their maple syrup and pecan flavour, along
with a special Chocolate easter-egg batch. Both were delicious,
but I still think their original vanilla flavour is hard to
beat. I laughed out loud when I read on their website that
'our fudge safely lasts for three months from production'.
Not in our house, it doesn't. One bag was devoured in precisely
two and a half minutes!
buy Veronica Farm Fudge at various shops around the islands,
and the vanilla flavour is also available to buy online Veronica
30th May 2012 - Island-grown strawberries
We had the
first of our home-grown strawberries at the weekend, and I have
to say they were deliciously sweet and juicy. Ours aren't for
sale, but there are island-grown strawberries available on most
of the off-islands - try Tamarisk farm on St Agnes (they have
a stall oposite Downs Cottage guest house, or ask if they have
them on the menu at Coastguards Cafe or the Turk's Head pub),
Hillside Farm on Bryher (stall along the road from the new Community
Centre), or Scilly Organics on St Martin's (stall at Middle
Town). These are all excellent suppliers of locally-grown fruit
and veg, so take enough cash with you to snap up some of their
other locally-grown, seasonal offerings at the same time. Happy
