This year we have had a bumper crop of redcurrants at Cookies. Sharing is caring so we always leave some for our feathered friends to munch on. Redcurrants freeze very well and are delicious made into a sweet pastry tartlet filled with home-made vanilla custard and redcurrants dusted in icing sugar gently placed on the top. It makes the right combination of sweetness and sharpness that tantalises the taste buds.
We had great fun in our cookery club last week and the children got all creative with a wide selection of different veg, herbs and dressings to choose from to come up with their very own tasty summer salad. Here are some names the children chose to call their creations and some of the descriptions they used to try and get you to eat them!
