Here's what's happening in my kitchen at the moment...
With great lemons comes great lemon curd... that's what Uncle Ben said, or something like that. I'm still picking lemons and making everything lemony. We've eaten jars and jars of lemon curd... on scones, on toast, on pancakes and waffles, in cakes, on cakes (Madeira Cake with Homemade Lemon Curd and Fresh Berries), in pastry (Lemon Cream Choux Buns)... spooned from jar to mouth... and we're still not sick of it. It's pretty much a fridge staple around here.
With a pomegranate in the house, there's always the opportunity to bring a touch of the exotic to any dish. I love to up the Arabian Nights vibe by a whacking out the arils over a salad of tomatoes and roasted lemons or over a cake. There can't be a more festive fruit.
Not quite in my kitchen yet, but our gooseberries are nearly ready. And when they are, they are going straight into a pie, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
