Tales of Tasmanian Adventures in Olive Oil

Floral ice cubes


borage ice cube gin tonic

Borage has appeared from nowhere in our garden this spring. I’ve always known it was edible, but never tried it, and thought I’d make some cute ice cubes for my gin and tonic. (It tastes like … cucumber!)

I'm a British doctor who married an Aussie, moved to Tasmania, and bought an olive grove. Now making extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf tea. I'd love you to join my adventures in the beautiful setting of Southern Tasmania.

  1. Did you freeze those little flowers inside an icecube? That looks really cool!


  2. What a neat idea. I just acquired some borage seeds which I’ll plant in the spring – so will try this next year.


  3. How beautiful and perfect for a gin and tonic.


  4. I like a good G & T ! – dunno about having flowers in it but. πŸ˜‰
    Erhmm, Fi …? [grin]


    • Apparently borage is a traditional accompaniment for gin, and for Pimms, due to its cucumberry-ness!

      And I’ve just sent the label design to the printer. Twice. Having spotted a rogue apostrophe just after hitting send, despite proofreading about a million times [sigh]

      • Goodness ! – how did you know ?
        Proof-reading is impossible. Because once you’ve passed your eye over something your brain says “done this !” and refuses to cooperate further.
