I am gardening a bit, but mostly just trying to keep the weeds under control.
Eating: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries, currants, carrots, zucchini, beetroot, peas, beans (just a few), garlic, potatoes.
Freezing: currants and gooseberries.
Cooking: last weekend I didn’t write about it, but I made a gooseberry fool. It was delicious, and very easy.
Cook gooseberries (topped and tailed) with a knob of butter and some honey (sweeten to taste, but don’t oversweeten, as the tartness of the gooseberries is what makes it nice). I didn’t bother with pureeing the mix or anything. Cool.
Whip cream with vanilla essence and icing sugar. Fold in cooled gooseberry mixture. Eat.
Quantities are a matter of common sense. The proportion of whipped cream to cooked gooseberries is supposed to be about 50/50.
