its’ a happy man with Grapefruit Chilli Marmalade

I went to the Tauranga Farmer’s Market on the weekend and to my unexpected delight Richard the Chilli guy had Grapefruit Chilli Marmalade. It’s great stuff. I haven’t had any in years and I really should make it myself as I have loads of chillies in the freezer and there’s grapefruit all around at the moment. The only other place I’ve seen grapefruit chilli marmalade is Q Gardens near Waitara, Taranaki.

Tauranga farmer’s market is getting better all the time. The gluten-free sausages are great and I had the best masala dosa outside India there one fine day. I’ve only had two dosas outside India but it was pretty authentic. Now if they could just get some Oak leaf wine and a pig on a spit happening.

The farmer’s market is starting at the Mount soon on Sundays and running to the slightly more civilized hour of 1pm.

Interesting to see a novellist making their work available online for tips ala The Crimea, Radiohead & NIN. I guess Carl liked the idea of bypassing the publishing companies and making his work available for tips. It drastically reduces the cost of getting his work out and it’s environmentally friendly too. Or is it? No paper or transportation costs but more electricity consumed by readers and I was tempted to print them as well.
