Official Big Garden Announcement: The 2015 Big Garden Lemon Curd season is now open! Raise the yellow flag! 1st batch of 4 jars now available at The Big Garden on application in person at the house. £3.50 per jar.
Denise: Over the last few days I’ve been busy turning a bumper crop of citrus fruits harvested from the bargains shelves at the co-op into marmalades. Sweet orange, Dark Muscovado, Lemon and Lime. About 70 jars ready for sale during 2012, and some for ourselves as well. Starting with our this morning’s coffee and toast. Marmalade-stripes on toast: sharp, sophisticated and sweet.
Denise: A surfeit of eggs just now, so I’ve been turning some into lemon curd: incredibly more-ish stuff it is too! I’ll probably make another batch in a week or so. Last year’s harvest of blackcurrants was very good, and looking in the freezer it looks like we’ve more than enough for ourselves, so this afternoon I made 14 jars of blackcurrant jelly; and there’s surely enough for another batch of that too.
