Received this week as a gift from one of my faithful blog followers here in Franconia… What a lovely – and delicious – surprise, just like Mum used to make it (takes me right back here: memory’s myth land) and it pairs up really well with Hazelnut Crispbreads.
Thank you so much Karin!
And the citrus hasn’t stopped there: I am currently working my way through a treasure of a cookbook received as a gift last autumn:
Preserving, by Emma Macdonald
of The Bay Tree fame, published by Nourish Books 2014
The photography is classy, the recipes (both classic and contemporary) truly inspirational.
(And just for the record: apart from owning the book, I have no connection whatsoever to either the author or affiliates…)
A tale of kitchen table talent, here’s where you can read up on the story behind the book: http://www.crumbsmag.com/from-the-mag/686_form-follows-function
And here’s where you can see what I have been testing and tasting this week:
Orange & Cardamom Marmelade
Lemon and Lavender Marmelade
(the recipe calls for lavender flowers and lavender essence – I had a couple of bottles of lavender syrup left over from the summer so worked those into the recipe instead…)
Assessment: top marks awarded by both Hermann the German and Mini-Kraut – one of the most stringent juries out there..
P.S. the book also contains a recipe for Lemon Curd…
