Denise: Here’s this morning’s gathering from the garden. I’ve said before that the tomatoes were at least a month late, and not at all plentiful, but the flavour and quality has been remarkable. But this is a first for us – still harvesting tomatoes in October : that’s no doubt down to the really good weather we’ve had for the past fortnight.
Today I made some of the Carageen J and I harvested from the shore the other day into a desert. I didn’t have all the ingredients listed for a fancy recipe, so found a simple one on the internet: it required about 12g of dried Carageen, an egg (from our hens), nearly a pint of milk, a vinalla pod (you could substitute some other flavouring) and just a little sugar. Method? Well you can look it up on the internet yourself: it’s very quick and easy. Served with a little single cream. Well, with single cream, anyway. Greatest expense was the milk, but the total cost less than £1 – and that’s for four very generous helpings (as photo) Absolutely delicious! We’ll definitely be doing that again! Eating well for less? Well, we could just end up Eating More!
