Harissa export to China
Every year I make Harissa from home grown chillies.
It's just half a dozen jars for personal use and a few smaller jars for some special friends.
(Don't be offended if you didn't get one.)
When I've made a batch I tend to give away the older stock (from the previous year).
Well ... I gave 2 jars to a Chinese woman at work - we swap a lot of adventurous food stuff.
She was heading off to Hong Kong to visit her father and she packed the jars.
I've just heard that her family were impressed by the Aussie Harissa.
So much so, that her brother took a jar with him on a business trip to mainland China - probably to woo some clients.
I can now say that my Harissa has been exported to Hong Kong and China.
Maybe, just maybe, a sales rep from China will come knocking on my door wanting 5 tonnes of the stuff by next week.
