Jams and Preserves, Recipes / 09.09.2021

Whenever I'm faced with a large quantity of ripe fruit that I can't get through quickly enough, I usually choose to A) freeze it or B) make a jam or curd. Since fruits generally contain a lot of water, their texture will change on freezing and defrosting. This is because the water inside the fruit cells expands on freezing, and the ice crystals rupture the cell walls. Once defrosted, the fruit will inevitably be soft and soggy. This is not an issue if you're planning on using the thawed fruit for smoothies, juices or sauces but if you're planning on...

I immediately knew I wanted to make a pavlova - a dessert that for some reason has never appeared on the blog (these meringue nests come pretty close though!). In truth this is actually a hybrid between a pavlova and a Mozart cake. A pavlova is an Australian dessert made...

Sponsored.We all know and love the juicy, zesty flavour of a Clemengold® -perfectly delicious as it is! They also work wonderfully in baking, and I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with them the last few weeks. What I love about using Clemengolds® in desserts is their amazing versatility. Their sweet, juicy mandarin flavour works equally well in a light, citrusy dessert as it does in a rich, chocolate cake; in a refreshing summer cocktail or a comforting winter pud.These Clemengold® Custard Tartlets allow that delicious mandarin flavour to really shine through. The tangy, creamy Clemengold® custard is encased in a crisp pastry shell, and topped with light...
