Rose Puff Pastry Cake

Two big jars of rose jam made from rose petals in last June is brewed and ready to use now. This weekend  is wet and cold , it is good time to stay inside and learn to bake rose puff pastry cake.

As the roses are pink, the jam became  brown colour after six month in the fridge. Mixed the jam with roasted black sesame and glutinous flour to make fillings.

Four hours later, the cakes are ready. When I eat it and the sweet smell reminds me the warm , beautiful summer time.




Garlic Chives and Garlic

It’s very warm this weekend, today 28℃ shown on my car dashboard! 

On Saturday morning we bought two bags of multipurpose compost and one bag of farmyard manure.  Replaced the soil in the greenhouse with them, and then put the peper plants in. 

 Went to the allotment in the afternoon. Having been very busy, we haven’t done anything yet this year , no digging and weeding. The soil  was very dry because it didn’t rain  for a long time. Council   switched on the tap on the 1st April. The plants desperate need watering.  Due to the council No hosepipe policy, we had to use buckets to water them.  My husband did all watering job, about 30 buckets of water! 

The garlic and garlic chives are growing well. We cut some garlic chives and cooked dinner with it. Delicious….
