This little piggy went to market...


Last weekend I went to the Nabiac Markets to have a look around. It wasn't as big as I was used to, but there were really interesting things available!


There were many potted plants up for grabs. Everything that you could want in an edible garden was sold there.


I even found strawberry plants with a tiny strawberry shyly peeking out through the lush green leaves!

Inside, there were some food stalls showcasing their wares. 






I didn't get anything from the inside bit of the market though. I did, however, get these three little beauties on the way out.



The hot chilli chutney was good, but really tasted like apple sauce with chilli in it. Don't take the "hot chilli" label at face value though, it's really not that much of a kick, more like a subtle warmth. It really grew on me though, I kinda like the idea that I'm eating adult apple sauce lol.


Now, as a rule, I'm not the biggest fan of capsicum. In this case however, it's not bad at all! Yes, it does taste quite distinctively of capsicum, but the jam-iness smooths it over and makes it really pleasant. I still wouldn't use it in large amounts (just cause of personal "dispreference") but it's still really good.


I think out of the three I like this the best. The sweetness of the tomato brings out the natural sweetness in the chillis, and I think the heat that runs through this balances it very well. It's like slightly mushy salsa, without the tang. Subtle, but not. Me likey.

Looks like it's cold meats for a while then. ;)

Happy munching.

Oh I do love buying chutneys and relishes at farmer's markets. It's lovely being able to try new flavours and finding ones that you really love.

Absolutely!! Sometimes there are interesting jam flavors too!

The only problem is trying to get back to the markets to buy more when you run put. :(
