The tomatillos are practically throwing fruit at us. These are from some wild plants that reseed every year. Once they were either purple or green, but now they're all crossbred and just sort of do whatever they want. Still taste great!
This year's "jam session" yielded about 3 gallons of blackberry and raspberry jam. We picked a little more than 20 lbs of fruit and used this foolproof recipe
When you live on the avocado highway, these things literally just fall off the trees
Got bananas going brown? Forget making more banana bread, try making banana chips. They're dead simple to make and taste delicious (like banana candy but better for you). Here's how to make them.
We've lots of subtropicals and semi-rare plants on the Acre. Interestingly, they all fruit in fall. This one is Psidium littorale, aka Yellow Guava or Lemon Guava.
Every year our Feijoa, aka: Pineapple Guava (Acca sellowiana) treats us to a ton of dense green fruit with a pineapple like flavor. I'm not a fan of the fruit itself, but a friend of mine is a brewer and uses it in one of his specialty beers, so I'm a fan of Feijoa then.
We had an unusually cool summer which let the grapes take their time ripening. Now that cool fall nights are here, the fruit is finally finishing. Wine soon enough!
