Time Off

18 Aug

I didn’t do anything arty today, I’ve had a day off to relax a bit. I did some baking …. vegan coconut macaroons which didn’t quite work out. They taste nice but they don’t have the gooiness that condensed milk gives the traditional ones.

And a tarte tatin with cooking apples from our allotment and glazed with apple and rosemary jelly made by a friend. I made a sweet pastry and tossed the quartered apples in a lemon syrup before putting them into the tin. I bake tarte tatin in a smallish cast iron frying pan I’ve had for many years.

    Ooooh, coconut macaroons… must make some… oh, only I like them… must make some!!
    have you ever had deep coconut tarts, they are actually like little topless pies, with very short pastry and filled with very sticky coconut which I think is actually macaroon mixture. Because of the pastry shell it doesn’t matter how gooey the coconut is!
