This is the start of posts I've been wanting to do for a long time. Exploring local markets and finding different and unusual ingredients that I can share with you.
I purchased this cute but weird looking number from the Saturday markets at Uki in Northern NSW. It's called a Kiwano African Cucumber. They where grown by Madhura Prya who is a Hari Krishnas from the Srigovinda Dham which is only a couple of kilometres out of town. The lady that gave them to us was Ayla who was doing great job running the stall at the markets. Lucky for us, both of them where there at the same time so we had a lovely chat with them and learnt so much about not only the fruit but also the people we both know in the area. The world really is such a small place when you consider we come from such different walks of life.
