Recipe Notes

To roast pumpkin seeds, first boil in water for 10 minutes, drain and pat dry. Roast in pan with a drizzle of rapeseed oil for 5 minutes or so until tinged with gold. Toss in a little salt. Delicious to nibble and keep for a week.

For excellent chutneys, handmade in small batches I recommend Huntly Herbs & Galloway Lodge

Today I also used Blackthorn Salt & Supernature rapeseed oil in my recipes

For an extra kick do add some of Sheena’s chillies from Galloway Chillies
