    Lemon Curd

    Lemon Curd

    Long, slow cooking is the secret for a good lemon curd. Use a double boiler or a heatproof bowl over a pan of hot water. Take your time! This recipe makes about 800g which should just about fill two standard size jam jars.
    Make sure that used jars are spotlessly clean and sterilise by warming in the oven.
    The curd should keep in a cool place in perfect condition for about three months.

    Lemon, Cinnamon and Sugar Beet Tart

    Lemon, Cinnamon and Sugar Beet Tart

    Well, this is not your everyday pudding and started as an experiment to see how versatile sugar beet was and if it's possible to make homemade sugar. Sugar beet has a bitter aftertaste which is removed during commercial manufacturing where hydrated lime is used in the refining process. The lemon and cinnamon in this recipe completley masks any bitterness. This recipe uses basic cookery techniques but will take a little time to work through. More of a fun exercise and worth a try if you can get your hands on some sugar beet. Not a dinner party dessert though!

    • Time: 2 hours to make the sugar pulp and syrup. 30 minutes to prepare the tart
