Yesterday’s Wolf Moon, Oranges and Pak Choi

11 Jan

Photo and words by Kris Meadon, written yesterday, used here with permission.

“It’s 4.30pm as this evening’s full Wolf moon rises slowly through the mist and clouds behind the fairytale castle of St.Michael’s Mount. 🌝 January’s full moon was dubbed the Wolf Moon by early Native Americans due to villagers hearing packs of wolves howling in hunger around this time of the year!”
We couldn’t see the full moon at all last night as it was far too cloudy. I went out several times to find it……   I was delighted when Kris’ beautiful photo turned up and he said I could use it.

A friend alerted me to the fact that Seville Oranges (needed for making marmalade) are in the shops for their very short season so off we went this morning to our local greengrocer’s to pick up enough for 4 batches. These are enough for one batch. I shall freeze some to make later.

Tonight’s Turkey stir-fry featured Pak Choi from our vegetable patch at the back.

    Seville oranges make the best marmalade! Yum! We call that veggie Bok choy here in the US.
