I’m slightly delayed in posting my Foodie Penpal blog post for this month – it has been quite a busy few days, one way or another.
This month’s package comes from the lovely Agne, and all the way from Lithuania! Agne very kindly sent me an interesting range of specifically Lithuanian foods, and they’re great!
Buckwheat Honey: This is a type of honey I have never encountered before, but Agne’s Mum says it is the best kind of honey in the world 🙂 I’m keeping this in store for honey breads, as I think the nutty flavour of the honey will work well in that type of baking.
Smoked cheese: I haven’t tried this yet, but it looks great 🙂
Chocolate: a 70% chocolate map of Lithuania! 😀
Pastiles: I’ve never come across anything quite like these before! It seems to be a soft sweet made of whipped fruit juice/pulp and sugar. Agnes sent me three flavours: rhubarb, blueberry and blackcurrent, and they’re all lovely. The rhubarb one in particular is a bit like a cross between a biscuit texture and sherbert!

Next month I will be taking a short break from FPP as I’ll be away on holidays, but I’ll be back in October 🙂
