That wet and windy day saw us scurry homeward after a short but sociable trip to St George’s Market this morning. The market was full of bemused French people wondering what on earth could persuade people to live in such a dull and dreary place. They were all here for the rugby at Ravenhill this afternoon, where no doubt they’ll learn the true definitions of ‘Baltic’, lashing’ and ‘foundered’ – you have to feel sorry for them!
Home for us then, with some Armagh Bramleys – Mr Redmond tells me that this is the last of them and that the rhubarb will be coming soon. I love how the changing of the seasons is reflected in one stall – the first of the Rhubarb, strawberries, flowers and apples all make their appearance in their turn on this stall at St George’s.
So, Apple crumble, I think; or maybe Apple and Raspberry, as I have some frozen Raspberries from last summer.
I also got some beautiful lemons this morning, so lemon curd is on the cards too – we’ll have it with some scones tomorrow afternoon with any luck, and if any of you want to call in!
On my wanderings through this site (you do realise that I cook from my own website, don’t you?) I also spotted an Apple Cake recipe, which, from memory was a success too. If I don’t start soon, I’ll run out of time..
Keep warm during these January days! And remember – Rhubarb is coming!
