A New Favourite: BBQ Lemon Ginger Pork with Sweet Apples and Crushed Potatoes


How lucky we’ve been to have had lots of sunshine over the last months … and we’re only technically 10 days into summer … though technically it is raining and the big cloud looming over London is looking angry. I’m doggedly optimistic that it will blow away by tomorrow because, being the weekend it’s time to BBQ!

Max and I have already been busy barbecuing away on our tiny little terrace so I have a few upcoming entries. But first would you mind if I revisit one of my¬† favourite BBQ dishes? We originally made this BBQ Lemon Ginger Pork with Sweet Grilled Apples on a bed of Crushed Potatoes back in December when we were in Australia. Seeing it was then British Winter, I reckon it deserves a repost now it’s British Summer. It’s a very simple dish to make and can all be done on the BBQ or grill … even the crushed potato.

So follow the link for the recipe and give it a try … Max and I will certainly be having it again soon.

Lemon Curd and Blueberry Pancakes … the Curd has it


Pancake Day may be over but there’s still good reason to try these babies out. Lemon and Sugar or maple syrup are my usual favourite toppings but this new one is joining the ranks. And before you say anything, no I didn’t make the lemon curd especially. I’d made some for a cupcake filling at the weekend and was wondering what to do with the leftovers, aside from eating it straight from the bowl. Then I remembered the amazing Lemon and Blueberry tart I had eaten at the now closed Eastside Inn in Farringdon … and being pancake day … well you get how I got there.

Enjoy!

Lemon Curd

Ingredients:

1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
100g butter
1 egg
3 egg yolks

Method:

In a small saucepan, heat lemon juice and butter until melted.
Add the sugar and eggs. Whisk continuously otherwise you’ll get funny eggy bits in it. Keep whisking until mixture is thick and glossy.
Pour into a bowl or tray to cool. Will set a little more when cold.

Note: Use freshly squeezed Lemons for the best flavour.

Heaven on Toast: Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese & Capers on Sourdough


Heaven on Toast this certainly must be …

Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese & Capers on Sourdough

… and when I’m in the mood for decadence at the breakfast table this is what does it for me. A thick slice of Gail’s Potato and Rosemary Sourdough (after a tip off from friend O), lightly toasted and topped with a thick smear of cream cheese. A couple of lightly placed layers of Smoked Salmon, a sprinkling of salt packed capers and a squeeze of lemon.

Just a squeeze of lemon

It was my birthday breakfast after all …
