Gareth was away in Cornwall on work for a couple of weeks, and when he came back he brought some treats with him.
Cornish ciders and beers
I love this flagon! There’s another one as well. Any ideas for using / displaying them once the cider is finished?
“Proper Job” is a common phrase in Cornwall.
I’ve been on call for work though, so I haven’t actually been able to try any yet, but Gareth reports that they’re very nice. I’m keen to try the pear one in particular, as I prefer pear to apple cider. Apart from my usual favourite, Kopparberg, I’ve only had Bulmers and Magners pear – both of which fail miserably in comparison to the Koppaberg one (in my humble opinion…), so we’ll see what this Rattler stuff is like. CAMRA don’t recognise most of the commercial pear ciders, but I tend to prefer the sweeter taste compared to real perry.
We also got Cornish jams, pickle, and honey – all very yummy
And we also got some new plants, both from the ginger family – Myoga (Zingiber mioga) and Assam Orange (Hedychium densiflorum). Both have joined the others on the bathroom window ledge (as it’s the best spot for sunlight!).
At first I thought the Myoga ginger was a lilly, as I thought its leaves looked like our peace lilly’s leaves. But on closer inspection they’re quite different…
It was nice and sunny today, and the ginger leaves were very pretty with the light shining through.
