What a lot of rain we had over the last few days.
It washed away the chance of us putting up the gate last Sunday, so we can start on our garden.
We picked the first of our pea shoots tonight, they we amazing.So fresh!
We re-shot the sugar cured salmon pictures, with Scotties new camera and took some shots of sorbets.
Here is the recipe for one of them.
Lemon and Thyme Sorbet
1.4 lt Water
500g Castor Sugar
100g Liquid Glucose
300g Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed)
8 sprigs Thyme
In a large pan mix the water, sugar, and liquid glucose.
Bring the mix to the boil, and simmer for around 5 minutes.
Add the lemon juice and thyme stalks( Pizza thyme is best for this recipe)
Cover the pan with a lid or cling film and turn off the heat.
Allow the thyme to infuse without boiling, like making tea
Leave to cool, and churn in an icecream machine.
