a strange fruit.
before we moved to texas , i had never heard of a loquat tree.
now i have not one, not two but three of these enormous fruit bearing monsters.
our neighbors had told us they make good jam…. but being a girl on a mission i scoured the internet and found this kinda cool sounding tasty dessert: loquat crunch. personally i am a big fan of the wonderful world of the dessert crumbles from rhubarb to apple… but loquat?
so today i stewed loquats.
i made crumble.
….and it did not end there….along these same lines i am ashamed to say i also baked ginger cookies.
i know… but i am craving sweets (my comfort food), stuck at home waiting for ups & also doing a bit of knitting ;-)
happy wednesday everyone!
