goodbye summer

The summer once gone, becomes something to remember. I have always welcomed March wholeheartedly. The cooler climate, crinkled brown leaves and a month of consecutive birthdays. Scones with lemon curd* are a must too! Think of it as an ode to the summer days.

*Making lemon curd is like making a custard (without the milk and starches) in a double boiler. I have reduced the sugar down to 100g and used 100ml of lemon and lime juice. The result is just the way I like it, tangy and tart. Serve with lightly sweetened whipped cream to balance out flavours.
