In the kitchen...

On the way out today i picked some greens and we had a stir-fry for tea...

...lottie ingredients were garlic, shallots, white & purple pak choi, mizuna and curly purple kale - I added ginger, pepper and soy and oyster sauces.

Probably doesn't look as delicious as it actually was...

Tomorrow (1st November) is officially Doyenne de Comice picking day according to Jane Grigson in her Fruit Book so I will try to get the bulk of them picked. We have been using some from the tree for cooked puddings to try and do them justice and waste less than usual - especially as we are not very good at getting them to ripen properly. (But when they do they are totally magical). Anyway I made this little tart for poorly Sue. Had made the case up at the same time sas the last apple pie.
I sautéed the pears in butter then added a little water and put the lid on for a bit then added sugar cooked a bit longer and finally maple syrup and turned the heat up and it kind of toffified. I then put it in quite a hot oven for 10 minutes. Seemed to go down ok and the bit I tasted wasn't a disappointment...The pears are from the garden not the allotment though.
