Rubies

 

These little jewels of fruit are growing on a small bush in my garden at the moment. They’re Chilean Guava (Myrtus Ugni),  marketed  here in New Zealand as New Zealand Cranberry. They’re delicious little berries tasting like a mix of strawberry, pineapple and apple, so a real fruit salad flavour. They grow well here in southern New Zealand, not minding the cold, the wet or the dry. I’ve not used them for anything more than a snack but this year I’m going to try cooking with them… muffins, crumble, sauce, pie …mmmm!!

Now the processing
Da Vinci Sketchbook @ Soft light 69% masked softly from the focus fruit
Catacomb Frieze @ Overlay 100% desaturated as I just wanted the texture not the colour
Fly Nik Preset 2 Bone Counters adjusted to taste.
I should add here that it was the preset that made the photo really sing:-)

Da Vinci Sketchbook is from the Paper Painterly Pack, Catacomb Frieze is from the Spring Painterly Pack and the Bone counter preset is from Fly Nik Preset 2 Pack

    Tasty in every way, wish we had them in France!
    Lovely iridescent rich colour tones, Jill! 🙂

      Thanks Paul 🙂 You probably can grow them in France, but not sure if they’d grow in your Mediterranean heat. I’ve never seen them in the shops here btw, if you want to eat them you’d have to grow them.
