Holidaying in Bhutan was such a wonderful experience that even now the mountains and the dzongs, the fruits of the season, and the swift-flowing rivers keep coming to mind. The weather was beautiful. Although daytime temperatures were almost like what we experience at home, evenings had a wintery kind of chill and I was glad I had packed something warm.

With all the apples and the pears that we brought back I decided to make apple chutney and apple galettes. At least with the chutney, we'll be enjoying the fruits for a longer period of time. Although the duration of the flight from Paro to Guwahati is only 35 minutes perishables never look their best after a journey. The pears will be used for a pie.

There's more...the Farmer's Market was a two-minute walk from our hotel and it was a delight to see the fresh produce on display. I also picked up some local cheese, butter, beans, more chillies, different varieties of rice, buckwheat flour, and sweet tomatoes. More on these in my future posts.
Thank you for stopping by today.
