As you know, we’re in the middle of the season for citrus, so I am sure you will agree with me when I tell you that you should take advantage of !!!
One of these last weekend, I was able to receive friends at the home, and I know that one of them was very fond of jams. He can almost eat a jar a breakfast… But there was a problem, I was almost out of stock (I still am). By chance, I had at home a fruit basket full of various citrus fruits. So I launched into the making of this delicious cream with citrus fruit, or curd with citrus, which seems to have been a great success. Phew, I was saved… It only remains for me to make jam now. I will wait for the summer fruits…
