Horse, Sweet Potato Soup and Limequats

1   The horses in the field behind us almost came into the garden today! One was scratching his neck so hard on the fence that we thought it might give way!

2   I had some left-over sweet potato from making a Sweet Potato Cake (Don’t ask! It was a disaster! The recipe read well but it was almost tasteless, solid as a brick and fit only for the birds!)  While it was in the oven and before I knew how awful it was, I decided to make the rest into soup with carrots and ginger, onions and garlic and vegetable stock and that was fabulous!

3   I didn’t know what Limequats were either! I’d eaten Kumquats and these, it seems, are the lime version. I decided to make Crystallised fruits with them so here they are in their sugary bath with cinnamon and vanilla. I love how the little seeds have the green line in them. In case you can’t tell the scale, each Limequat is a bit bigger than a marble but not quite as big as a golf ball.

Toady I’ve posted the recipe for the very delicious Raw Chocolate Brownies should you wish to try them. You can find it on my Recipe page or click here.
