Cutting Back Autumn Raspberries
I cut back the Autumn raspberries this week and gave them a good weeding and then mulched with a bag of well-rotted horse manure. I had a rather poor crop this summer and since I rely on them for puddings, jam and for the freezer I decided they needed some TLC and a good feed.
With cold weather forecast for next weekend it seemed time to pick my first crop of sprouts. They were sweet and tender especially the leafy green tops which stayed bright green when gently boiled in lots of water.
Here’s the recipe and I have now made it twice and the last time it was from cooked, roasted beetroot that I had sliced and frozen and it worked perfectly. http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/zaatar-spiced-beet-dip-with-goat-cheese-and-hazelnuts
