Barbara at Tigers & Strawberries chose Fresh and Local for the 5th The Spice Is Right theme. Barbara would like that foodbloggers feature a local grown spice in a recipe containing as many local ingredients as possible!
I’m featuring thyme, which is actually a herb and grows in my garden, on the photo together in a pot with chives behind the mint pot.
I also can harvest my tomatoes
So I decided to prepare
Tomato tart with cheese crust
The flour is produced by Versuchgut Lindhof, which is run by the University of Kiel, my workmate produces his own free-range eggs, I replaced the cheddar with Fünf-Seen-Käse.
Crème fraîche and butter are also organic and are produced from Hamfelder Hof, all products are available on the local farmer’s market. Except the Dijon Mustard is imported from France. I guess 97 % of the ingredients by weight are from Schleswig-Holstein. I think that’s not too bad.
