Biscuits With Blanche
About this deal
Using a dessert spoon, drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking paper, a few centimetres apart. Its finest uses are as a soothing herbal remedy but I love it for the intense fragrance and hazy colour. I first encountered real Italian lemons as a child when I visited family friends in Northern Italy one summer. A summer recipe for baked apricots and raspberries, delicious with whipped cream or crème fraîche and almond biscuits.
These parts can be separated and used either individually or together, both of which offer unique elements that perform in completely different ways. These are not just memories of the taste and texture of the food, they bring back the experience of the table where we ate; the room; the light and the emotions. I’ve since re-read it several times, to squeeze out every last word of this evocative, informative odyssey into my two great passions: Italy and lemons.The other 92% is what creates the quality, depth and extraordinary response to light that transforms your home. Add the eggs, yuzu juice and bergamot zest and continue beating until you have a smooth, creamy mixture. These biscuits are delicious enough on their own with a little butter and jam, but feel free to go big with sausage and gravy, make a bacon egg and cheese sandwich, or even use them as a topping for a chicken pot pie!
They are perfect to grill and because their flavour is mild, they are all the better with a good marinade.com also sells the whole fruit, a small and deeply wrinkled orb shaped citrus indigenous to Japan and Korea, which is in season now. Every time I open a jar to scoop out some green tomato chutney or some rowanberry jelly, I think of her and the flavours transport me to rural Cornwall. There is a wonderful book, written by Helena Attlee – The Land Where Lemons Grow – an exploration of both Italy and its extraordinary production of citrus fruit, which I read a few years ago. I’m a fan or Mascarpone but it can create too heavy a filling, so I’ve used half yoghurt to balance it out. They are simple and yet protean, indispensable but taken for granted, sometimes treated harshly and misunderstood, and yet continue to be the cornerstone of cookery.
