Fresh fruit, so good for you, think of those five a day, think of smoothies. Imagine crunching into that apple or pear, taste the flesh, feel that juice running down your chin…
Now look at this image.
Hmmmmm, now this image is not having you lick your lips in anticipation, this, alas, was a cook craft mission gone wrong.
Yesterday was a day spent in the kitchen. Idgy baking cupcakes (successfully, but no photo as they would make my fruit efforts look even less tasteful) and me trying out different bits and pieces. This was a mission in fruit crisps. Alas it looks more like an essay in 'how not to…..', or a 'Let's see what we can cremate today'.
Things would have been fine had I not forgotten that the damn crisps were in the oven in the first place. It wasn't until 7pm that I had that niggling feeling at the back of my mind, hmmmmm what was I to remember, I'm sure there was something I had to do?
And then I remembered, I opened the aga and there they were. Aah how sweet, burnt offerings welded to the wire rack.
Trial and error.
Must try harder.
I will not be defeated by a fruit!
