So Many Blackcurrants

I was thinking what I should do with all the blackcurrants Jen has picked this week. I noticed Mr Kipling made an Apple & Blackcurrant Pie, so I thought why not make a blackcurrant pie.

I was curious to see what made one of these pies, here’s the list of ingredients, with the dreaded palm oil….

WheatFlour (with added Calcium, Iron, Niacin, Thiamin), Sugar, Vegetable Oils (Palm, Rapeseed), Glucose Syrup, Diced Bramley Apple (7%), Bramley Apple Purée (5%), Blackcurrants (5%), Dextrose, Concentrated Blackcurrant Purée (2%), Modified Maize Starch, Humectant (Vegetable Glycerine), Salt, Acids (Malic Acid, Citric Acid), Raising Agents (Disodium Diphosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate), Preservatives (Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Metabisulphite (Sulphites), Sulphur Dioxide). Check out for yourself.

Here’s what my pie will be made up of….

flour, blackcurrants (freshly picked by Jen), sugar, butter, egg.

That’s just 5 ingredients vs untold from Mr K including palm oil..

Why don’t you have a taste test 🙂

Easter Fall Out

Last week was a very quiet week, we made all the usual goodies but we think everyone was full of chocolate or penniless after Easter.

We were left with quite a lot of products by the end of the week. There was no way me and Jen could gorge our way through them all, so in the end we gave everything away to the homeless charity, SLS.

We had two new items last week, firstly the steak and kidney pies and then for the weekend we had Lemon Cheesecakes, both were a hit.

We were left with quite a few pasties which made me think, do we just stick to Cornish Pasty and Cheese and Onion Pasties? Although it was nice to give food to SLS, it was still heartbreaking with all the work I had put into baking Steak & Ale and Chicken & Chorizo, and that’s not even mentioning the Smartie Cookies. The jury is out.

So, what to do next week? We will stick to the favourites unless alternative requests come through..

Cornish Pasties
Steak & Kidney Pies
Cheese & Onion Pasties
 
Custard Slices
Strawberry Shortbread Sandwich
Triple Chocolate Brownies
Chelsea Buns
Millionaire Shortbread

We look forward to hearing from you
