Went to the farmers market... And you will say... big deal Yannis..
Yes, but I went to a special farmers market rather far away from where I live.
I go there on Fridays because I can find Christos one of the producers there that I really like. Will write an article about him one of these days and you will realise why he is so special.
Anyway... He had fresh and tasty strawberries and I bought about 3 pounds of them. Also bought a lot of veggies and as he always adds a few freebies, he added this bunch of chamomile. And he actually put it in the same bag as the strawberries.
When I went home I took one of the strawberries and ate it... The scent of chamomile lingered and it really complimented the taste of the strawberry. Then I had an idea to make a jam out of both of them.
And boy was I glad I did!
Only turned out 3 jars... one big and two small ones.
Yesterday while I was doing the photo shoot for the final product the guy came to fix the alarm system. As he came outside from the back door he saw the process and I gave him a piece of bread with some jam to taste.
He loved it...
Afterwards when I asked him how much I owe him he said: One Jar of that jam....
I gave him the big one...
And now I have none.. I must visit the farmers market again very soon!!
Recipe follows.. oh! One thing! I love coriander and I added 1 tbsp of it in the jam.
Big mistake.. it overpowered the taste of the chamomile and so in the recipe I more than halved it... beware...
