With the festive season just a hop, skip and a sleigh ride away, thoughts of what to do, see and of course eat start to drift into mind.

With so much colour and flavour available, why not make it a different Christmas by experimenting with local cuisine?

One of the best spots for just this is Cindy’s fresh Produce in Umhlali.

Cindy Valayadam has been running the shop since 1983 after starting her working career at the local pharmacy, and she certainly has a recipe for success.

Despite being situated in the sleepy farming village of Umhlali, a steady stream of loyal customers frequents the shop for Cindy’s delicious homemade chutneys and preserves, which she will happily talk you through herself.

Highly recommended are the banana or guava chutney, Mauritian mazavaroo, atchar and pickles. These make for great additions to any table, Christmas time or anytime.

The savoury preserve selection is supplemented by a range of delicious jams and curds, plus freshly picked produce featuring east coast curry essentials.

Local fishermen ensure a supply of just-caught fish and Cindy’s selection of take-away curries is equally coveted.

There is also a “green element” to supporting Cindy’s – her produce has a low carbon footprint as it comes from her nearby farm.

MyBallito pressed Cindy for one of her special curry recipes, but secrets are secrets!
