    Hi Pete,
    Russian compote is cooked like this :
    Take apples + all other fruits /berries (but not necessarily), peel the apples, slice everything, boil and then simmer them until they are soft, add sugar or honey (honey only when it is cooled a little bit) to your taste. Ready to drink hot or cold. You can add lemon when drinking.

        Not daft if you don't know. Boil fruit till soft then, as they say for the soup, "zap it" with a hand blender. If you don't have one, mash with a fork or potato masher.

        As for the hairy string, just use your garden string ...
        :heehee: :whistle:

        I am liking the idea of banana curd maybe with cinnamon or pumpkin and ginger. Pumpkin compote is popular here with soft goat's cheese on home-made / country bread.

              I use honey to sweeten cooking apples and for rhubarb, it gives a more pleasant taste and don't have to use a lot.

                        That's got really unusual flowers for an alstroemeria. It's always good to see something different on here.

                            Cobaea (Cup and Saucer plant) are now getting into their stride and we have loads of flowers coming (counted up to 50 of them but stopped there as I didn't learn any higher numbers - was counting in Bengali :heehee:).

                            They start off opening with the flower green (one on left just about to open) then gradually go through colour changes (second from right) to deep purple (but they're not into Heavy Metal) :loll:.

                            The insects love them and are at them non-stop. There were three deep inside this cup at the same time!

                            You can see him on his way inside to where the others were - at the bottom of the cup.

                              The Cleomes are very rewarding (our first year with them) and they have been flowering since the end of June. They're annuals and we had virtually 100% germination so we sold a load of them and planted the rest all round the garden :)
