Yorkshire Dales Food and Drink Festival

Had a brilliant day at the Yorkshire Dales Food & Drink Festival, Funkirk Farm, Skipton. http://www.yorkshiredalesfoodanddrinkfestival.com/ Tempted to bring home some delicious treats: Rapeseed oil with garlic and rosemary from Wharfe Valley Farms https://wharfevalleyfarms.co.uk/.  Delicious with ciabatta bread or makes your roasties so scrumptious and crunchy! Kin Toffee+Vodka drink and truffles https://kinvodka.co.uk/ - such a warm caramel liquer and the truffles are sooo smooth! As we've got such a bumper crop of currants this year - the sun and a gentle steady watering seemed to have worked wonders - I'm tempted to try making some Blackcurrant vinegar and Redcurrant Vodka - I'll let you know how I get on!
