Anyway, a spot of pudding was needed on Friday night. I had some berries lurking about - raspberries and blackberries. Summer fruits have been disappointing this year due to the weather. I have yet to taste any really sweet, flavoursome berries from this year's crop. The weather has hardly been suitable. (There is an exception though. My sister planted some strawberry plants earlier in the year - we tasted the only four berries produced at lunch today. They were extremely delicious - somewhat pricey though when you consider the cost per plant versus the yield!).
The berries lurking in the kitchen were lacking sweetness but were reasonably flavoursome. I didn't really fancy eating them on their own. Instead, I just popped them in ramekins, dolloped over some yoghurt mixed with a teaspoon of really good lemon curd, sprinkled them with demarara sugar and popped them under a hot grill (though a blow-torch would have done a better job).
