Eggstra! Eggstra! Read all about it!
Our six lovely hens have been dutifully laying between 4-6 eggs a day. To honour their efforts, I decided to add a few new lines to the early rhubarb range we sell at farmers' markets. In addition to the jams, jellies and syrups we now have:
Early Rhubarb Curd
Soft, smooth, intensely flavoured spread. Delicious alternative to jam on bread, scones, muffins, or as a luxurious filling for cakes and tarts. A total sell out at our last market, so come early to avoid disappointment!
Rhubarb & Ginger Crumble Muffins
Large muffins with chunks of rhubarb and stem ginger to add some kick, and topped with a crumble topping. A really naughty treat you have to try!
Giant Cocoa Meringues
Huge fluffy pillows of sugary eggy air laced with bitter cocoa. At home, these are fast becoming one of our weaknesses. They are just simply yummy! Eat them when you are on your own as they do make a bit of a mess and you do look slightly silly with cocoa powder and bits of meringue all over you face and front. They taste extra special with a good cup of coffee.
