CHRISTMAS PAN FRYING PRESENTS
I got a cast iron AGA griddle pan for Christmas from my Mum. It's exactly right: takes a while to heat up and then is very very hot. And with all the Bakeries mayhem over, I've finally had a chance to made exactly what she always makes on her's, drop scones. These are usually a tea time treat but there was no pudding tonight so I made them for pudding, and they were just delicious. Especially with Mum's damson jam.
This time of year is brill because you get loads of time to potter and make the things that there isn't always the time to make during the busy year. Tomorrow I'm going to try and make some blinis with rye and buckwheat and dill seeds. Horay. And if anyone has an idea of where to get smoked eel let me know, because that's what's going on top.
