This afternoon I came home to monstrous okra, golden cherry tomatoes, ripe cayenne peppers, and thai basil that's begging to be used. Here's what we harvested this evening:
Little Fingers Eggplant
Everyday my garden seems to double in size and things are starting to ripen. One of this year's favorites is pineapple mint. It makes an amazing mojito!
4 springs of pineapple mint
1 tbsp Vanilla Sugar
Juice of 1 lime
4 oz good rum
1 can of ginger ale
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint and sugar. Squeeze in the lime, and add the rum. Add a few ice cubes and shake shake.
Fill two glasses with crushed ice, pour over the rum mixture and top with the ginger ale. Enjoy!
