Currently, I have three local egg growers in Halifax. All of them have loved, free range chickens that receive excellent care. Two of my growers started out with the intention of having pet chickens, and have so many eggs now that I get to share them with you!

Bitter Gourds     

These gourds, also called bitter melon, are more common in Africa and Asian cooking. They have a very bitter taste, hence the name. The one photographed is one that has past its prime. Usually, it looks more like a very bumpy cucumber, and picked when small.

Eggs     

My chestnuts come from a Chinese Chestnut tree. My grandfather has had them all his life, and we've enjoyed picking them for as long as I can remember. Now you can enjoy them too!

Fruit     

This southern treat can be prepared in so many wonderful ways. It is best when picked small. It's also notorious for having slimy insides when cooked, but I think it's like the insides of a Twinkie: creamy and delicious! (Especially when fried! Mmmmm!!!)
