This was a Stitchery of an Angel which I made into a small quilted picture, and a pendibule which I made for a dear friend Margaret in Australia. I can addthis now as she has now received it.
Going back a day to Saturday after shopping I had the cooking bug, and I made some Gingerbread men and ladies which I yet have to decorate, and I also made a Carrot cake which for some reason this time turned out a bit heavy.
On Sunday I made some delicious ice cream from blackberries which I had gathered in the summer and had frozen.
This is the Recipe
Blackberry Ice cream
250g (8.75oz) Berries defrosted, or fresh
125g(4.5oz) granulated sugar
I tablespoon lime juice
200cc(7floz) cream ( whipping or double)
100cc(3.5fl.oz) whole milk
Clean the berries, or defrost completely. Puree the Berries,with the sugar and the lime juice. Pour the milk and the cream into the mixture. Make sure that the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.Pour into an Ice cream machine that is switched to firm setting and leave to churn for 40-45 mins.If you don't have an Ice cream machine, put in the fast freeze part of your freezer in a suitable container, and mix with a fork every 2 hrs to break down the ice crystals.
