Tomatoes, tomatoes

Are you missing tomatoes that actually taste like tomatoes? The fantastic Tomato Stall on the Isle of Wight supplies us year round with their amazing range. In the winter they come from the Tomato Stall's farms in warmer climes but for most of the year (and NOW) they are grown on the Isle of Wight and delivered to us fresh - and there's nothing nicer than a tasty tomato!

Varieties that we stock include:

  • classic on-the-vine
  • cocktail on-the-vine (a bit smaller than classic)
  • cherry: red and yellow
  • baby plum: red and yellow
  • red plum
  • mixed heirloom varieties
  • beefsteak: red, purple and pink
  • and Simon's recommendation as the best flavour - 'Arreton Jewel' baby plum on the vine

Easy Sausage Rolls

We still sell our delicious, homemade sausage rolls in the shop, but if you are unable to get them we made our own at home with the kids this week. Here's what we did...

Ingredients: 1 packet puff pastry, 1 Wallace's Cumberland sausage, 1 egg.

  • Roll out (or unroll) the puff pastry and cut in half length-ways.
  • Skin the sausage and divide it into two portions.
  • Place the sausagemeat in the middle of the pastry, brush one edge of the pastry with a bit of beaten egg then roll it up fairly tightly.
  • Cut the sausage rolls in to whatever length you would like, score the top and brush with beaten egg. (At this point you can freeze them, make sure to defrost before cooking). 
  • Place on a non-stick baking tray and cook in a hot oven for about 20 minutes (depending how big you've made them). Check the packet of pastry for cooking temperatures.
