Yes here in Wales I was harvesting lemons this morning,
Just perfect for making some lemon curd with the addition of our own eggs.
Melt the butter and sugar in a bowl over a pan of water, add the zest and juice of 4 lemons
Beat together 3 eggs and 1 extra yolk, add to the bowl stirring continually
once it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon its ready to get into jars.
I am really excited about this, I never thought I could be making Lemon Curd from my own lemons.
While I was in the kitchen it was time to use up more of those cucumbers.
Chopped and de-seeded 2 cucumbers along with 4 spring onions (homegrown)
heat some olive oil add the onions and cucumbers, saute together for a few mins
Add some chopped potatoes (homegrown)
Add some chicken stock ( made from our own home reared chicken)
Hot cucumber soup (home made), it was surprisingly tasty, as this soup can be frozen I am going to make up some more and get some in the freezer.
