Found this bottle of 2017 Ballyhoura Ice Wine hidden behind some other bottles ... just gorgeous.... A Rare Apple Ice Wine made from rare, bittersweet apples mostly grown in 200 year old Orchards on the south facing slopes of Ireland’s County Cork. Freezing temperatures are used to achieve this beautiful, rich must which slowly ferments for over a year to give a truly luscious balanced dessert wine. I’d forgotten that I still had a bottle, a particularly pleasant surprise to bring cheer during COVID-19 @ballyhouraapplefarm @ballyhourawines #irishwine #supportlocal

Marsh Samphire also known as glasswort, because of its use in glass-making, this grows and thrives in marshy mud flats, estuaries and areas close to the sea. Despite the name, it’s not related to rock sapphire and is in fact a member of the amaranth family. It’s a succulent that looks like a mini cactus but isn’t at all prickly. For more information and for a recipe for a pickled Marsh Samphire go to https://www.fromballymaloewithlove.com/recipes/marsh-samphire-salicornia-europaea or go to our stories for a swipe up link. Also saved in our foraging highlights. #wildandfree #fromballymaloewithlove
