Today we bought blackcurrants, gooseberries and plums, and tomorrow I am going to use them in a crumble. I will make the crumble with half flour, half jumbo oats. It will be amazeballs.

I picked raspberries at work yesterday, and we're going to bake them into a cake....

I am currently making rather a lot of blueberry cake.

The woman from Brownsfield Farm was in Ely market today & I stocked up on her marmalade & blackcurrant jam, none finer. She has been missing for a while, & (shock! horror!) we ran out - but now we are saved.

I had a very intellectual conversation with a colleague the other day, about cheese. Neither of us understands how so many types of cheese can come from the same ingredient: just milk. It's obviously some sort of witchcraft.

It's the same process by which so many different types of mould can grow in a student kitchen.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

I made lemon curd yesterday, well actually my bread maker made some lemon curd yesterday, but it is lush!

ooh, nice!

We made raspberry cakes. There aren't none left now. :(

But they were lovely! :D

The crumble is pretty good.

My ratatouille-type mixture of vegetables has turned out surprisingly spicy.

TSS is not Total Sex Score, Chris!

Last night we had a works meal out at a Chinese restaurant and we all shared our various dishes. I had sliced pigs head, eel, pork and noodles of various varieties, ox cheeks, and frog legs.

Today I breakfasted on 3 gooseberries from the wild gooseberry bush near us.  That's all there was.  :(  I get the feeling it's not going to be a good wild fruit year.

With the assistance of Gina-the-Cleaner, we made four jars of homegrown mirabelle jam.

Our gooseberries were hopeless this year - I think there were three berries, compared to last year's 6kg last year and 18.6kg in 2010.

Today I made 4 x .5 litres of spiced apricot & orange chutney, and 3 litre jars of spiced pickled pears. Half a pear wouldn't fit so I just ate it. Yum.

The yoghurt that I knitted earlier in the week turned back into milk upon the application of honey and a bike commute to work, for some reason.
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

Next time, try crocheting it.

Or maybe adjusting the pH of the yoghurt.
I suspect the honey increased the pH, making the milk proteins more soluble.

Too acidic will give you curds & whey, too alkaline won't be yoghurt. One drop of lemon juice may do the trick.

Same thing happened today, this time with the addition of fig jam.
