Homemade Potato Wedges

Since I had some yummy homemade chilli sauce in the fridge I decided that it needed some wedges and sour cream to go with it, and you can’t top homemade rustic wedges.Homemade Potato WedgesI started by washing the random mix of potatoes I had in my cupboard and cutting them into wedges. I know some varieties work best, but I didn’t need to go to the shops for anything else and these all tasted pretty fine if you ask me!

Then I placed them into an oven tray and covered generously with some Macadamia Oil and then seasoned with freshly ground mix of herbs and salt. Homemade Potato WedgesI popped them into a hot oven till they were scrumptiously golden.

Served with my chilli sauce mixed with honey (it really made a delicious sweet chilli sauce!) and sour cream. Was such a easy and yummy snack. Homemade Potato Wedges

RECIPE: Homemade Chilli Sauce

Homemade Chilli Sauce RecipeOur little vegie garden is thriving at the moment. It’s so nice to be able to wonder out on the deck and have lots of greenery and life around. Everything we plant is edible and is so useful whilst cooking to be able to slip outside and grab a handful of chives, or to make a super healthy green smoothie with the baby spinach.
At the time chillies sounded like a grand idea, always nice to have one or two to add to the occasional meal… well we ended up with about 8 plants loaded with chillies that needed to be eaten so chilli sauce seemed like the obvious solution. Homemade Chilli Sauce - Multicoloured Chillies Homemade Chilli Sauce 1
