Weekend of good food

This last weekend I had an awesome time in the kitchen. I have a hankering for making up recipes and experimenting with recipes. The weekend yielded preserved oranges, awesome custard tarts, the worst sushi I have made so far and the best gnocchi that I have made so far.

On Friday afternoon I preserved oranges using a recipe from the book "Preserved". The recipe itself is really simple, but I found that I needed more syrup to properly cover the oranges in my containers. Next time I'll make more and worst comes to worst use it to flavour a pudding at a later date.

I also made a fantastic baked custard tart from scratch. I really must start keeping a proper food journal instead of winging with recipes all the time, when I find something that works, I must write it down!
