Another busy day at the festival! And my purse is quite a bit lighter!
First I have to show you the lovely clydesdale horse that was delighting all the children. Isn't he a beauty?
So, back to the food stalls. Todays delights were:
A bottle of raspberry wine from Slim at Cairn O' Mohr Winery. A rather mad chap and so is the wine! I haven't opened the bottle yet, but I know of the delights held within! I have many happy memories of this wine! The first was of a student night, to a local pub. Cairn O' Mohr, had a free wine tasting. They must have been mad! Students! Free Wine! Oh Dear! I am lucky to remember anything at all about this night!
The Cairn O' Mohr Winery is situated in a farm in Errol, very near Dundee, where they make wine from the local berries. They use strawberries, raspberries, brambles, elderberries, elderflowers and oak leaves!
My next purchase was a very expensive bottle of 12 year old, oak matured balsamic vinegar (don't tell Graham!) from the The Gift of Oil. It is really rich and sticky! I was actually browsing at the cheese stand next door, when the waft of balsamic vinegar assailed my senses! The stall holder saw that it had me in it's thrall and persuaded me to try some. Well I was lost then, wasn't I? That is my card being swiped!
I stopped at the supermarket on the way home to buy some crusty bread and once more I curled up on the couch exhausted. This time with cubes of bread to dip in a little bowl of balsamic heaven!
