Wild Spring Equinox Supper

Spring is in the air. Spring is coming. Yay! The weekend of 19 and 20 March brings the Spring Equinox, that half-way point where the lengths of the day and the night are of equal length. In the hedgerows there is new growth, tender young greens appearing and seaweed is at its most succulent. Celebrate the return of Spring, cast aside the Winter. Join me and Bumble (of Bumble Puddings) for a Wild Spring Equinox Supper on Saturday 19 March.

    • That was my Slow & Boozy Typsy Sea Laird. A Typsy Laird is the name for a sherry trifle. I made this one with damson and slow gin spooned over a sponge base along with the boozy damson fruits. Then a layer of elderberry carragheen custard, then a layer of elderflower carragheen cream, topped with sliced hazel nuts and toasted nettle seed. It was all eaten!
