Orange (Seville of course! which I make with brown sugar only)/Orange and Ginger/Lemon and Lime/3 Fruit (Orange/Lemon/Lime). - Sell masses to the French - They always make theirs with sweet oranges or mandarines and wonder why it does not taste the same. As in UK, Seville oranges only available for a fortnight here, and then usually only available to the trade. As a patisserie I can get them fairly easily, but I am buying 50Kg at a time - so I'm a good customer in January!!! - Takes me a fortnight to boil the fruit down - then I freeze it and pull out a Kg at a time when I need it - add sugar and 20mins later it's all ready. Get 9 pots from each batch.
Just put greenhouse cover back on (new one has not turned up yet!) - Dreadful gales yesterday. Hope it improves. 1 more aubergine popped up this morning. Glad these seedlings are tucked up in the kitchen. Garlic doing really well in pots in greenhouse and parsley plus salads thriving. New Broccoli ready to eat. Tuscan Nero Kale going to seed - Tried eating seed heads - really tasty and stalks have re-sprouted - Have I found something new?
