August 2012 Calendar

It’s the end of July already – but at least the sun is shining now, so there’s no excuse not to get out and about to the weekend markets in Cardiff and pay a visit to Eira on her InnerCityPickle stall. Wherever you live, check out your nearest markets and buy from local traders – it’s the very best way to keep your local economy thriving and it’s great for the environment too.

Keeping it in the city, InnerCityPickle’s goodies can now be found at the Caesars Arms Farm Shop at Creigiau (CF15 9NN), so if you can’t make it to the markets, you needn’t miss out. There might be some delicious elderflower cordial left if you’re quick.

We mentioned last month that InnerCityPickle will soon be appearing at the St Mary Street Market in the city centre. This has been delayed a little because the next two markets have been cancelled because of the Olympics. However, Eira will be at Roath Farmers’ Market on August 4th and 18th, and her first St Mary Street Market should be Saturday 11th. Why not pop along, have a taste of her delicious jams and pickles, and say hi.

Details of forthcoming market appearances can be found here, and look out for a brand new InnerCityPickle blog for the autumn.  You can also visit the InnerCityPickle website or follow on Twitter for all the latest news.

The calendar has been made using photographs taken by Eira and Sean, in the Cardiff kitchen “as it happens”. If you’re lucky you might pick up a printed version on the stall!

July 2012 Calendar

As usual, Eira’s been very busy in her Cardiff kitchen making wonderful things for you to enjoy.  There’s caramelised red onion chutney, a new aubergine, pepper and tomato chutney, and tomato and celery chutney. She’s also just finished a one-off batch of ‘Mam’s Red Sauce’. If you’ve tasted her ‘Mam’s Brown Sauce’ you won’t want to miss that!

All these lovely wares can be picked up at Roath market, and as from July 14th, Eira will be at the new city centre markets on the Saturdays she’s not at Roath. If you’re not living in Cardiff, it’s definitely worth paying a visit. Eira tells me there’s also a very lime green coloured lime pickle (because she used only green chillis) available this month and she has topped up her supplies of spiced carrot and garlic chutney, all of which you can now wash down with her wonderful elderflower cordial.

Keep an eye on the Inner City Pickle website or follow on Twitter for all the latest details of market appearances and new lines.

June 2012 Calendar

It’s already time for the June page of Inner City Pickle’s 2012 calendar which is free for you to download and print. It really will brighten up your kitchen, as would a few jars of Eira’s delicious wares.  This month she’s been working hard on some new Aubergine Chutney, and Dukkah (which she tells me is “ground roasted nuts, seeds and spices – nice when dipped in with bread and olive oil”). What I’m really keen to taste though is the new season Strawberry Sauce – it always looks so amazing. Sadly for me, Inner City Pickle is low carbon footprint, local produce for local people – if you’re in Cardiff!

If you are in the Welsh capital, however, you can find Eira and her Inner City Pickle stall at Roath Market three times in June – 2nd, 16th and 30th. No excuses – pop along and have a chat.

May 2012 Calendar

Well I’m sure Eira hasn’t been out much with her “wally trolley” collecting jars this month, but I know she’s been filling them with more of her wonderful jams, pickles and preserves. You can stock up at Roath Market – this month the Inner City Pickle stall will be there on Saturday 5th and Saturday 19th. Pop along and say hello to Eira, and see what she has for tasters!

The calendar has been made using photographs taken by Eira and Sean, in the Cardiff kitchen “as it happens”.  Just look at the colour on that strawberry sauce! I keep seeing photos of it but I still haven’t had any.

I’m late with this month’s Inner City Pickle calendar! I know some of you were lucky enough to get a pre-printed copy from Eira at the Made in Roath and Milkwood Gallery Spring Fiesta on Sunday, but here’s the digital version for you to download and print yourselves.

March 2012 Calendar

March already and time for the third installment of the 2012 calendar for the lovely people at Inner City Pickle in Cardiff. The calendar has been made using photographs taken by Eira and her partner in the Cardiff kitchen “as it happens”.

Eira has been working on something new to tickle your tastebuds. ‘Mam’s Brown Sauce’ is the latest addition to her incredible range of locally produced goods – all made with locally sourced ingredients. Some of the new titles will only be available for a short while – for example Cathays Pear Jam was made with pears from … you guessed it, Cathays. The next batch could be from another tree in another area so grab it while you can.

February 2012 Calendar

Here is the second installment of the 2012 calendar for my good friends at Inner City Pickle in Cardiff which has been made using photographs taken by Eira and her partner in the Cardiff kitchen “as it happens”.

Eira will be at Roath Farmers Market on Saturday 4th February from 9.30 until 1.00.  This will be a one-off appearance so do pop along and see her. She’ll be selling all her  local seasonal products. Eira makes the best banana cake that you will ever taste, bara brith, Adamsdown artichoke relish, Seville curd, Cathays pear chutney, and the wonderful Mostarda di Frutta and Pumpkin marmalade. Plus more. Not to be missed.

Happy New Year

First of all I would like to wish a very happy and healthy new year to you all. I’d also like to thank everyone for reading my blatherings here and on Twitter.

Last month I posted the final installment of my free-to-download 2011 calendar and announced that for 2012 I’ll be sharing a calendar for my good friends at Inner City Pickle in Cardiff.  If you’re in the Cardiff area, do check out the website. Eira’s exciting range of jams, pickles, preserves and baked goodies can be bought locally in many markets around the city and her ingredients are locally sourced.

The calendar has been made using photographs taken by Eira and her partner in the Cardiff kitchen “as it happens”. Lots of lovely ingredients and finished products to make your mouth water all year round.
