I met a lovely lady this week (Hi Kit!!) who gave me a lovely bag of Lemons and Loquats!
Now... I didn't want to say so.... but I had NO idea what a loquat was!!! I tried one on the way home and it was sorta like a cross between a Nashi Pear and a Lemon - yum.. but it was going to be a whole lot of work to get a feed out of them!
I checked out the net when I got home and found this website. I was intrigued with the Loquat BBQ sauce and gave it a try... but really... BBQ Sauce?? Not really... great as a marinade or a salad dressing, but not really what I would call BBQ sauce. What is more, it was sorta blah! So I thought I'd trick it up a bit and make a bit more tasty and useful. It didn't take much - well worth the effort. John has marinated a chook with it today and is going to cook it on the BBQ ( so it sorta IS BBQ sauce LOL)
Interestngly, it doesn't have any onion or garlic in it!!! I think a few garlic cloves would be lovely in it... but it is nice without too.
As I said... I might not use this as a BBQ sauce.... but as a marinade, yes!! as a salad dressing? Oh yes!!! It would be great in a bit of a curry too!! I'd welcome some other suggestions!!!
