I live near Bristol, which is, for some reason, a bit of a wasteland when it comes to food shops. There’s a farmers’ market in the city on a Wednesday – hopeless for those who don’t work anywhere near it, and a couple of markets at the weekend, but they lean more towards the car boot end of things than the epicurean.
Thankfully, on the first Sunday of the month, there is the Slow Food Market up by St Nick’s market. It opens at 10 a.m., and you really do need to be there soon after that – not easy for me and Pete on a Sunday 🙂
Among the goodies we bore home at the February market was a little pot of home made orange and chilli jelly; we weren’t sure what we were going to do with it, but it tasted *so* good …
Yesterday, we had roast pork, and I smeared some of the jelly on before it went in the oven; it was *gorgeous*. I did the same with a duck a couple of weeks ago, which was also delicious.
