Day Fifteen

When I put up this post, about all the lovely images in magazines, a certain someone left me a comment saying "Wow! Clementine curd - sounds fabulous. Save a little tiny pincushion sized jarful for me." An email discussion ensued where I pointed out it was just a magazine picture and I hadn't actually made any. "Well, I think you should." came the reply! The gauntlet was thrown...

Luckily our girls are still laying the occasional egg and so I gathered together my ingredients...

and the result is some rather tasty clementine curd!

I'm seeing Gill today, so she will get her jar of curd... but of course now she has to make a cake in which to put her clementine curd. Unless of course she eats it straight from the jar!

  1. Oooh, ooh, and if she brought the cake today you could fill it at your meeting and then both eat it!

    Sorry Gill, pre Christmas madness is infecting me. I think most sensible people are immune ;-)

    That curd does look wonderful though.

  3. You are lucky having fresh eggs.

    Our hens seem to be taking a break til 2011 except for one who wasstill laying 2 or three a week - then she started moulting! Yesterday every time she shook herself a cloud of feathers fell off. She'll soon be almost naked :-O brrrrrrr!!!

  10. Sounds lovely but are you really going to insist that Gill makes a cake?

  11. It wouldn't stand a chance of making it inside a cake around here - it would be besieged by an array of spoons as soon as the lid was off!

  12. Frankly, I'm amazed it made it to the jar and wasn't eaten straight from the pan. Not that that's what I would do or anything...

  13. She is very restrained. I'd definitely want more than a pincushion sized jar!
