Pink Lemonade
Serves 8-10

  • 2 lemons, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 oranges, peeled and thinly sliced
  • a piece of ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 20g Hunan green tea (loose)
  • fresh mint
  • 4 tbsps honey

Put the lemon, orange and ginger in a pan and add 750ml water. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add in the tea, mint & honey and simmer for another five minutes. Remove from the heat and leave in the pan to cool completely. Once cooled, strain into a jug. The lemonade will be very concentrated, so add more water to taste. I added approximately 500ml of cold water. Very delicious!

Spring recipes that are perfect for Easter!

spring easterAfter the long, cold winter months, spring comes with warmth, color and an abundance of culinary delights. This is a wonderful time to spend leisurely mornings wandering around farmers’ markets, soaking up some inspiration along with a much needed dose of Vitamin D! It’s also the season to start planting an edible garden, no matter how small. I don’t have much space, but I do have various pots of herbs I hardly have to tend to. And, I’ve grown courgettes, tomatoes, spring onions, turnips and radishes quite successfully. If I had more of a green thumb (and space!), I would probably plant much more!
The following recipes are a great way to celebrate spring — and perfect for Easter, too.
