Spoke too soon, I have Rogers cough and sniffles. I can cope with the runny nose but the cough is so flippin annoying. The constant hacking is driving me crazy and irritating for Roger too, even though he doesn’t complain as he’s knows how it feels. Also, we’re not getting much sleep but hopefully it will clear soon as there’s loads that need to be done. We had hoped to visit a flower show at Pamproux on Easter Monday, but didn’t fancy being outside in the wind and rain, never mind there will be others. Anyway, that’s enough of me feeling sorry for myself. Here’s another recipe using up some of our plum mountain that I made a few weeks ago – plum sorbet. Easy to make, the colour is amazing and tastes delicious. Weirdly it has a creamy texture even though there’s no cream in it. I also made a fig version, the colour not so appealing, but tasty all the same.
