If you are staying in a gite near or in Daglan you must visit Les Jardins De Picami for excellent bio vegetables fresh from the farm. Situated just outside Daglan on the D60 road leading to St Pompon. Leave Daglan and you will see the farm a hundred metres or so on the left, so drive slowly or you will miss it. The farm is only open to the public to buy the vegetables on a Thursday 4.30 to 6.30pm.
Two Signs to look out for.
After turning left at the sign there is a steep slope down to the car park, drive slowly because they have free range chickens.
A delicious variety of tomatoes. The white tomatoes have a wonderful sweet, fruity taste.
All organically grown on the farm.
Tomato Chutney made from the farm tomatoes tastes delicious and goes particular well with home made tomato and black olive bread and a cheese of your chose.
500g mixed tomatoes
1 fresh red chilli pepper
140g brown sugar
1 Peel and finely slice the onions, roughly chop the tomatoes, de-seed and finely slice the chilli.
2 Put everything into a pan, season to taste and stir well to combine.
3 Simmer for 30-40 minutes or until jammy. Pour into well sterilised jars and leave to cool.
The chutney will keep for up to two months. Once opened one month in the fridge.
