Come and have a meal or tea with us at Wranghams! We offer various options, including ‘home hosting’ meals and afternoon teas on our lawn or in the back conservatory. We aim to use local produce as much as possible, including from our own garden, and we also use our own grown and roasted Wranghams…
Christmas on St Helena is coffee-picking time! 2021 was a pretty wet year, but that means it was a good year for some of our young coffee bushes. Today we picked several buckets of ripe coffee berries, which we’ll soak overnight tonight and de-skin (“pulp”) tomorrow.
Every year a few intrepid fairy terms (common white terns, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_tern) lay their eggs on branches of our eucalyptus trees at the back of the house. They have no nest – eggs just rest on an indentation in the branch – and the single chick has to cling on, literally for dear life. Should they…
It’s brunch tomorrow, with bread made with fresh basil, feta, olives, and sun-dried tomatoes! And Wranghams coffee, of course! Yum!
Some lucky folks are coming for a home hosted afternoon tea today! Fresh tuna pate, St Helena tomato paste, home baked scones with home made medlum (a type of guava) jam, cappuccino made from fresh roasted Wranghams coffee, all on the menu! Yum!!!
It takes a bit of effort, but it’s worth it – home baked bagels served classic American style with smoked salmon, vegan cream cheese (made with cashews and tahini) and home grown salad for breakfast. All washed down with some delicious home grown and fresh roasted Wranghams St Helena coffee, the best in the world!
We have a few coffee trees on our small plantation, all from the original green-tipped boutbon arabica plants brought from Mocha in Yemem back in the eighteenth century. This year we harvested, pulped, dried.and hulled about 20 kilos – we roast it as we drink it.
We’ve hens and ducks – hens eggs are the brown ones on the left, and the duck eggs are the larger pale ones on the right. Eggs from our six Muscovy ducks are delicious – a little bit richer than hens eggs.
Even when the ground is parched and dry, nature keeps on giving!
Delightful home grown vegan dinner – from the garden to the table, vegetable curry!
Today’s daily picking, mulberries! The mulberry tree is a gift that keeps on giving. Foraging is fun!
