Kim got stuck into making a few yummy things in the kitchen whilst I was working in garden planting an apricot tree and a nectarine tree. We now have 10 fruit trees in the front yard which from now on in is designated as “The Orchard”.
So what did Kim make? Well, first she baked an Almond slice with a home-made plum jam base. She made the shortcrust pastry base from scratch which is then spread with plum jam, and mixed up ground almonds, castor sugar, icing sugar, egg white and almond essence and spread that on top.
I think I might see if I can get a dwarf almond tree for the orchard so that we can grow our own organic almonds.
Then she made some Granary Scones, topped with some of my Caerphilly Cheese. They were our afternoon tea.
