Looking forward to these days again .. when everything is lush and green🥰 
.
Unfortunately, our hedge at the front of the house has been severely damaged by box blight since last year.. It's been infected previously over the years but I've always managed to cut out the damage and it's recovered but never to the extent of how bad it is now.. Not sure if it can be saved but we'll try our best 🙏
.
Maybe its time for a change!

Rhubarb & Vanilla Jam.. This year I've made a commitment to myself that I'm going to use everything I've grown or foraged, starting with this simple jam. I don't have a rhubarb forcer but I've been pulling the young Rhubarb stalks before they get too big and as a result they are a beautiful shade of red (this picture is the actual colour)❤❤
.
It's made in a small batch and I don't plan on it lasting too long. I've made it twice this week so far and have been eating it on Brown bread but also on my Greek Yogurt in the mornings with granola 👌
.
500g rhubarb, washed and chopped into 1cm slices (prepared weight)
220g Sugar (granulated or caster)
2 tablspns Vanilla Extract
Juice of half a lemon

Put all ingredients in a heavy based saucepan and cook on low heat stirring until all of the sugar has melted. Turn heat up to medium and cook for 12-15 mins approximately until thick and rhubarb has broken down. Turn heat down to low and cook for a further 5 mins stirring so that it doesn't stick and burn.
.
Pour into a sterilised jar if you plan on storing it or into a tub or jar and keep in the fridge if you plan on using straight away

🍋Lemon Drizzle Scones 🍋 Just because we all love a scone!! I added lemon zest to my usual plain dough and then once they'd cooled topped with a lemon zest drizzle!
.
Fill with fresh whipped cream or clotted cream (if you can get it) and jam 🥰 Please make these if you get a chance.. they are delicious!
.
Makes 12 approx 
.
450g Self-Raising Flour
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Baking Powder
50g Caster Sugar
110g Unsalted Butter, diced
Zest of 1 Lemon
1 Egg, lightly beaten
50ml Cream
200ml Milk

Drizzle:
3 Tablspns Icing Sugar
Zest of 1 Lemon
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
.
Preheat oven to 180°C (350ºF), Gas Mark 4
.
Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl and then stir in the sugar.  Rub in the butter using your fingertips or whizz in the food processor until your mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Add in lemon zest.
.
Mix the beaten egg, cream and milk in a separate bowl and add into the dried flour mixture.  Mix until it all comes together – it should be soft but not sticky!
.
Lightly flour your work surface. Turn the dough out onto it and pat into a circle about 2.5cm (1 inch) thick.  Use a 5cm (2 inch) cutter to stamp out your scones and arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment making sure to allow space between them to rise during baking.
.
There is usually a small amount of the beaten egg/milk/cream mixture in the bottom of the bowl I used to mix the wet ingredients – I add another small drop of milk to this, mix and then use it to brush the tops of the scones so that they will be nice and shiny and golden top when they come out of the oven.
.
Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until well risen and golden brown. Leave to cool for at least 10 minutes on a wire rack.

Once cooled mix together the topping ingredients and drizzle
over
.
These scones are best enjoyed when eaten on the day they are made
.
TIP: scones can be frozen unbaked and then cooked straight from the freezer

This week I think it has started to feel like Spring..the mornings are brighter and the days are longer!! Our kitchen has windows and doors on 3 sides (triple aspect they call it🤣) and it's south facing so we get lots of light.. the downside is the sun shows up all the dust😭
