Baked apple jam

Dec 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Breakfast, Recipes

This time of the year is known for baked apple. The peeled apple is baked in the oven with cloves, nuts and cinnamon until it is soft. It is served hot as a desert. I figured that this taste would do well as a jam. So one could enjoy this blend of flavors also in [...]



Greek yogurt with fruits

Sep 5th, 2010 | By | Category: Breakfast, Recipes

Before the summer ends I want to post my favorite breakfast. Greek yogurt with fruits is something I can always eat. On Sundays this is what I usually prepare in the morning. I like using Olympos yogurt. It just tastes better than Total. Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook Buzz it up [...]



Grape jelly

The court yard is full with grapes. They have seeds though and I prefer to eat the grapes without seeds. The idea came up to turn the grapes into jelly and it proved to be a good one. The jelly looks good on a piece of toast and tastes great.. Bookmark on Delicious Digg this [...]

When I arrived in the house on the top of the hill, I was stunned by how full the lemon tree in the garden was. I had never seen so many ripe lemons on the tree and I observe it since many years. It almost was a pity to harvest all of them. I ended [...]



Marmelade

The season for the bitter orange is over but still I had a few oranges left on the tree. As I had failed previously in making marmalade, I consulted my neighbour Ms. Roula. The obstacle is to leave the marmalade with a hint of bitter taste but not have a truly bitter marmelade. Bookmark on [...]
