Sud Tirol, here you will fall in love!

Hi Kiwis,

I avoid it, i missed it to tell you my adventures but even more i couldn’t wait anymore to tell you about my trip to Süd Tirol.

As you probably already peeked the topic, we are talking again about mountains (what else?!). Where i bring you today is a special place for me, the place where i nearly was grown up. I visited it so many times per year when i was younger, my family loved it. Such places are soul warming for me when i return. For make a comparison is like drinking a warm Glühwein in the middle of a snowy forest.

Süd Tirol, is difficult (impossible i would say) to find words enough good for describe it. Here we are, in Italy, in the middle of Dolomites, in one of the parts of it i judge as the most wonderful. Here the time it seems never pass, even not 20 year later! Continue Reading

Well, after a long time of instability, of doubts about everything, of unwished changes, acceppted compromises, it was finally arrive the time to see the light at the end of this long tunnel. In few words, i have find a new Job, a full-time job that permit me to use my capabilities and make me feel a complete person. A full-time job as known bring always positive and negative things in the life. One of these negative is clearly that the time for dedicate me to Creative Kiwi is drastically decreased. Manage so many things, divide my life between work, Kiwi, digital art, jewelry and home is a real chaos. Anyway with a little bit of time i will take the right rythm for manage all that perfectly. Don’t worry, the Kiwi project will always go further! 🙂

Let’s look together what you need and how to prepair this delicious, healthy and wonderful marmalade!

Ingredients
– 1,5kg kiwi
– 3 Apples
– 1 Lemon juice
– 500gr Sugar
– 1/2 tbsp Cinnamon

 

How to do the Kiwi-Apple Marmalade

1 – Remove the Apple and the kiwi skin and then cut the apple in little pieces (from 1 to 2 cm maximum). Keep in mind that the kiwi must be mature or the marmalade will result very sour. For understand if the kiwi are mature, just touch it and if it feel a little bit soft – not too much – that’s the right time to use it for this marmalade recipe.

2 – Now put all the fruits in a big pot, add the juice of an entire lemon, half glass of water, half tablespoon of cinnamon and finally the sugar. Mix it all very good and let it inside for a couple hours covered with the top of the pot.

3 – Once this time is passed start to cook slowly the fruit. Control it from time to time and when the fruit is become soft, break the pieces helping you with a wood spoon. If you want you can use a hand-mixer until you create a well mixed kiwi-apple cream.

4 – Pour the kiwi marmalade inside the sterilised jars and wait around 15 minutes before close it. Once close turn the jar upside down and wait that it become totally cold.

Sadly, it was nearly one year I didn’t creative stuff and this is to see also from the website that “so much creative” actually it isn’t.

So I did and restarted to use Polymer Clay, to create digital art for bands (I promised to do it again!) and also some small printable files for my dear followers! And these are just few things I did but finally I have a good reason why my last post on Creative Kiwi was several weeks ago! 🙂
