Stocking Up, #36
Popped to Chorlton yesterday in the hope of buying some exciting things from Unicorn etc. and wasn't disappointed! Seville oranges are still in season - get making marmalade peeps - and broad bean have come in. Will make some nice desserts and soups. I'm looking forward to seeing how the new seasonal produce changes over the coming months. Also got hold of the ingredients for bread-making. I was hoping to do hot cross buns, but I think they may be a bit advanced so I'm starting at the start of the bread section in Ms. Grigson's book. Also, I'm going to try my hand at ice cream making this week, now that my ice-cream maker is fixed. Hurrah! I also need to get my finger out re: meats. Need to get hold of a veal knuckle. Any ideas anyone? W H Frost in Didsbury sells veal, but has run out of said knuckle! Also I have prepared (#36) Vanilla sugar. It simply involved putting four vanilla pods and a bag of caster sugar in a storage jar. I just need to do a recipe with it in. I also hear that a teaspoon of vanilla sugar in warm milk is nice as a bedtime drink. I also need to add my own recipes that I've been doing; haven't done that in a while...
