Very Berry Macarons and Holiday Cheers!

The weather is improving in the countryside where I live. We've started enjoying early Summer plums, strawberries and raspberries from our orchard and garden. Our young trees of blackcurrants and blueberries are trying their best to give us reward upon attention we've been giving them throughout the year. Giving us a little string of blackcurrants is quite a satisfaction given that how young the tree is.

The children are so happy in the orchard and it is their favourite task climbing up the tree and picking fruits. What a childhood bliss!

Today, I have finished my assignment on baking macarons for Christmas sweets my sister-in-law has ordered to celebrate the holiday with family and friends. I am using Helen's basic macarons recipe and make blueberry marshmallow filling.

Summer fruits are just a distant memory. Tomorrow we set off on our Christmas journey - 7 hours through the snow to North Yorkshire. Hopefully we'll get there and enjoy a glass of hot mulled wine with plenty of summer fruits in it. Have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

It's taken ages for our berryfruit to ripen here in HB - the yields dfinitely down on last year & it's attributable to the lingring cold and wet weather over spring. It's coming right now, luckily. Here's to a happy new year for you & your family, Arfi!
