In My Kitchen

… Are bottles of delicious oils, made around the corner from The Glen House. Newgrange Gold Rapeseed and Camelina Oil is grown and produced on a farm in the heart of the Boyne Valley, Co. Meath. The oil is a delicious “culinary oil with an amazing fruity taste, which is great as an incredibly healthy cooking oil, salad dressing, for frying and other culinary uses such as making home-made mayonnaise and baking”.

… Is a jar of Fig and Apricot chutney from McCambridges of Galway. This gorgeous, tasty chutney had been a staple in The Glen House since we moved in. It is great with all sorts and meats, hot and cold as well as cheese and crackers!

If you ever find yourself in Galway city, you MUST visit this amazing deli/cafe/shop. They make yummy brunch as well as stocking great foodie goodies!

… Are two new jars of goodness! The mango and apple chutney and red onion marmalade came from Foxford Woollen Mills in county Mayo. The mill is famous for blankets and scarfs, but we left after a recent visit with these delights. The marmalade isย sharp with sour notes and the chutney is slightly spicy and sweet.

See you next month!

  1. Melissa, my sore throat is crying out for that orange blossom honey, it sounds tasty, and (more importantly) sooooothing. How wonderful that you have locally made oils just around the corner.

  2. I am so jealous of your Tara tea set. It is beautiful and fits in perfectly with the way you have styled the Glenn House. What a wonderful gift! I also love your jam accessories and wish I could try that elderflower and crab apple jelly of yours. There is a really famous food market in Cork. Unfortunately we didn’t get time to see it during our trip in May. I will have to save it for next time. Emma xx
