I spotted millet growing in Crystals garden amongst all the beautiful organic vegetables and it reminded me of a time in Sikkim India where I drank a fermented millet drink that was the local liquor in those parts. As I drank I noticed that a whole lot of grubs were clinging onto the side of my bamboo cup. I have never forgotten millet. But it is also a very healthy grain. Crystal told me that she only used it to feed the chickens. So I came up with this recipe.
We are so lucky on the Sunshine Coast to be able to have so much food literally between our toes. Clams of any sort or even mussels can be substituted for these little shellfish. Make sure you don’t cook the sugar for too long - it will set your XO sauce like a rock.
