cornbread recipe leaving out the cornbread. I also added some cinnamon. I pushed whole blackberries into the muffin batter after filling them so the blackberries wouldn't get all mushed. They were delicious. Next time I'll take the muffins out of the tin before they cool since some of the paper had a tendency to stick to the muffins.
Anna, a potter from Sydney, Australia, suggested I try a fruit recipe for flummery. Flummery was popular in England and Ireland in the 18th and 19th centuries. I now have the ingredients and will try it very soon. Basically flummery is a cross between a pudding, a mouse, and a jello. I love these old fashioned recipes long since forgotten; they are well worth exploring again. For a tongue twister says "plum flummery" a few times in a row. Stay tuned for what I come up with.

white half runner beans. They take some work to prepare because they must be stringed. Stringing involves sitting at the table and snapping the ends off and the middle and pulling the pithy string from the bean. BUT and I emphasize BUT they are the most flavorful beans I have ever had.
