WILD GARLIC SOUP

We are so lucky at Blackwell House to have wild garlic growing on our doorstep. Mind you, it’s no surprise that it’s called by many names - ‘Devils garlic’, ‘Stinking Jenny’ as it gives off an incredibly pungent smell in the wild. However when wild garlic is in season we know we can top up on so much natural goodness.


CHICKEN BREASTS WITH MUSHROOMS AND MARSALA

This recipe turns a simple chicken breast into an absolutely delicious meal. If you like mushrooms you are going to love this dish. The marsala works so well with the mushrooms bringing a little sweetness to the dish but you can use sherry or white wine instead if you wish.

As usual if you have any problems following the recipe please contact me.

LEMON FRIDGE CAKE

This is a fantastic special treat dessert. What I like about it is that it freezes very well before you put the Chantilly cream on. All you have to do is take it out of the freezer a few hours before you serve cover with Chantilly cream and your family and friends will be really impressed.

SPEEDY RASPBERRY JAM

Sometimes in cooking we don’t have time to do things the long way round but we want all of the flavour no matter what. This jam is amazing. It tastes so fresh and all because we used the ‘added pectin’ jam sugar. This shortens the cooking time resulting in a fresher fruit flavour.

You can now make raspberry jam all year around and bring summer flooding into your tastebuds.

SODA BREAD

Great Aunt Maggie was a great bread maker. I have a big old cookery book that she won as 1st prize in 1920. Exactly 100 years ago. This bread from her hand written recipe book is so so easy to make, if you have never made bread before then this is a great place to start. She added the porridge oats to make it lighter than the normal oven soda and the honey gives just a hint of sweetness. Please put the salt in, it makes such a difference to the flavour.

The wonderful thing is it tastes fantastic and the smell as it cooks even better.
