Souvenirs from Samsø
I have returned from an extended week-end stay on the island of Samsø, where a good friend and I have been bicycling, walking, eating wonderful summer food (more about this at a later stage) and of cause some food shopping. We found an old style grocery shop in Ballen (Den Gamle Butik - Smagen af øen), which has focus on foods produced on the island itself. I find it very convenient, when everything is collected under the same roof, even though that I am not a big fan of concrete shopping malls !!!!!
The bottle from the left contains black currant coulis with tarragon, which can be used for desserts as well as matured cheeses.
The bottle in the middle is elder flower gastric for used in marinades, dressings, fresh fruit and drinks.
The bottle to the right is raspberry salad syrup, which can be used in salad or in desserts.
I find apple juice to be a very tricky product, it either wonderful of real apples or it taste very, very synthetic of unreal fruit. So I have expectations to these apple juice from Samsø, that they will actually taste of apples.
And finally I found two different types of fruit liqueurs. One based on raspberry and the other based on blackberry. I will test those in various summer drinks during this great summer time.
