Pickled etc

Wandering through narrow streets perforated with front doors and garden gates, peeking over walls and being delighted with courtyards and vegetable gardens is an excellent way to enjoy exploring. This is how I met Antoinette, a busy and cheerful lady who on this particular occasion was picking over Sumac (a lemony herb that grows wild on bushes) for drying. We are now firm friends! She lives in a converted church where once Saint Rafa resided for three years, her husband is in the army so she is often alone, but always busy! She jams and pickles, makes cordials and dries herbs and sells them from this table in her sitting room.
Sumac is a treasured herb in my knowledge! Great to see the produce here! Giving is good!

@busylady Yes, I did, an amazing Rose Cordial (needs dilution with ice cold water) an some vine leaves---the gap in the front row is where my vine leaves were standing!
