6:30 PM
Life’s chaotic at the moment. So what’s my usual coping mechanism? Right - I retreat to the kitchen.
Tonight, it was time for some experimentation.
In my garden this:
.. is ripe and I had a bunch of volunteers (and not-so volunteers, aka the minors) help me pick them. Now I have about five pounds of sea buckthorn mush, ready to be turned into jam and such.
And then there were some super fresh eggs from the neighbor’s flock.
Result: I decided to play around with a lemon curd recipe, using the mush instead of the lemon. I’m oddly pleased with the results, even though it’s a lot less tangy than I had expected.
I’m already thinking about the next batch, which will probably have less sugar and a dash of lemon.
