Oranges and Lemons

August 1, 2012, 9:43 am by Heather Webster

There are no Bells of St Clements here but plenty of fragrant citrus. Oranges, lemons, limes, now my cumquats are ready but how much marmalade can one family eat. Answer a lot because marmalade is not just for breakfast toast it teams deliciously with cheeses both soft and hard. It combines sharp, sweet and tangy taste sensations. My latest is limequat, a cross between limes and cumquat – smooth almost tear shaped fruit with no pips – the cook’s friend. Today an old favourite orange poppy seed cake. It should really be called orange almond cake – delicious and conveniently gluten free for the man building my new vegetable beds. They are a work of art.
