Hi! Good morning! How are you doing?
I know that this blog is centred around the Dorset happenings on the Finca, but I get so excited about what is going on with our Wild Home family that I love to share it with you on here too. I thought you would especially love this post (mainly because it involves cooking and eating – what’s not to love, right?)
If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you may have seen that we’ve been having a bit of jolly time with the monkeys in the Wild Home garden. Currently, their favourite game is to knock down the avocados off of the enormous avocado tree. One morning, our Kenyan team woke up to find hundreds of avocados scattered over the ground as a result of the monkeys’ high jinks from the previous evening.
Instead of being too dismayed, the team gave the avos out to everyone they met and kept some back to make a large batch of guacamole! Wild Homie Amit’s recipe for guacamole is particularly delicious and I thought that this would be a great opportunity to share it with you.
You will need:
1 large, ripe avocado or 2 smaller ones
1 clove of crushed garlic
juice of 1/2 a lime
a sprinkle of chopped coriander
salt and pepper to taste
3 drops of Tabasco Sauce
Either by mashing with a fork or by using a small blender, blend the avocado, garlic, lime juice, coriander and Tabasco together until it is smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste before giving it one more quick blend.
There are so many incredible ways to serve guacamole. My current favourites are either by having it spread on crispy toast or dolloped on freshly made spinach bread.
…and as for the monkeys? Currently we have some bananas hanging from the trees to try and entice them to spend their time up there more productively! I’ll let you know how they get on!
