Elderflower Ice Cream

Been foraging again, for elderflowers. What else at this time of year, eh.

So now there are four recipes for these delectable little flowers available on the CBP website. Whoopeee!

This one is just as delicious as the others, and just a bit naughtier. It’s also somewhat of a cheat as far as making ice cream goes, so happy days. No churning required.  Continue reading “Elderflower Ice Cream”

Radishes with Butter & Sea Salt

Get heritage radishes if you can, for no other reason than great presentation, and get to it!

Remarkably good radishes.  Continue reading “Radishes with Butter & Sea Salt”

Romanesco & Broad Bean Salad

Romanesco, the beautiful broccoli from outer space.

Mesmerising geometric spirals within spirals, it is, as far as we’re concerned, proof positive of alien life and 16th century visitations to Italy, where it has been cultivated ever since.

Quantities would just get the way of this delightful dish. We’re freestylin’ here along a well trodden path and there’s something special in the way these veggies and leaves come together of their own accord, in a simple and mellow flavoured, laid back salad.

Lemon Thyme Drizzle Cake

Flecked green with lemon thyme, this drizzle cake is as beautiful as it is delicious. Delightful served with tea in the afternoon, or any when you please.

Everyone loves a drizzle cake hey, and this one makes it into the Guardian’s top 10 best herb recipes.  Continue reading “Lemon Thyme Drizzle Cake”

Mint Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate mint cookies, the natural way.

Like banana cake or muffins, these cookies are even better the next day, when the natural mint flavour really comes to the fore. On day one, the mint flavour is very subtle and leads to an unexpected and unusual flavour which is charmingly wholesome.

These little loves are crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle, everyone’s a winner!  Continue reading “Mint Chocolate Cookies”
