Fruit galore



Look at what was waiting for me at Positano.


I went into the kitchen and pulled open the fridge door. Three more trays of ripe apricots perfumed the fridge ! I picked out the best ones for myself and got to work making nine jars of jam with the rest.


When I got back to Luxembourg yesterday, the garden was burgeoning with ripe soft fruit of all types.


To reward the family for their generosity in letting me have such a wonderful break, there will be homemade pizza for dinner followed by Vanilla icecream in a bed of quatre fruits rouges (cherries, strawberries, mulberries and red currents for garnish) topped with a colis aux framboises (raspberry sauce). Mmm... I'm for seconds !

Yummy fruit!!!!

I would like to know what the time difference is between the apricots and the red fruits...how do you travel from one to the other, or how long do you stay in one place!!

Diane - Thanks !

anne- I only stayed a week this time. Travelling there is complicated unless there is the direct flight in summer from Luxembourg to Naples which costs a fortune!
I stay as long as I can (up to two months at a time) but am mostly dependent on the school holidays :(
