Most of the blogs I read are beauty based. However amongst these beauty blogs are a few others on subjects ranging from: bees, fashion, pubs, architecture and food.
My favourite blog on food at the moment has to be Desert Candy. Desert Candy covers all kinds of Middle Eastern cookery. It has been running since 2006 so currently I've lots of posts that I'm still working through, which is lovely to do when I get a spare minute, kind of like a online cookery book.
I discovered Desert Candy when I was looking how to make Arabic/Turkish coffee (which I'm intending to do another post on at some point) and I've been reading it ever since.
The most recent post on Desert Candy is on pickled turnips, which weirdly coincided with me going to a farmers market yesterday and buying turnips and beetroot. I regularly have lunch at a takeaway called 'Falafel' in Rusholme (Manchester's curry mile) and I'd always wondered what the bright pink pickle thing was on the mezze - turns out its turnip pickled with beetroot!
As I had both items after visiting the farmers market, and I had the recipe at my finger tips thanks to Desert Candy, I decided to make my own pickled turnip to have with hummus and pitta which is staple for me. I won't bother putting the recipe here as you can read it on Desert Candy but here are some pictures of my pickled turnip...I let you know how it tastes!
