Tips and advice:

  • To stop the jam bubbling out of jam tarts before the pastry is cooked, simply keep the jam in the fridge before use – simple but very effective!
  • Freeze lemon juice in ice cube trays and then when recipes call for tablespoon of lemon juice just toss in a cube – this works well for all citrus fruits.
  • Zest a fresh orange (i.e. just the orange part not the white pith) and put into butter and brown sugar when you make sticky buns so the sugary part will not turn gritty but will really caramelise. Great taste and texture!
  • When cooking any kind of strawberry dessert, add a splash of aged Balsamic vinegar to the recipe to enhance the flavor of the strawberries
  • Egg whites should always be at room temperature before whipping. Be certain there is no yolk in the whites and that the bowl and beaters are perfectly clean. Cream, on the other hand, should be well-chilled.
  • Cookies will spread if your dough is too pliable by allowing butter to get too soft. If your cookies are spreading too much, try refrigerating the dough for a couple of hours before baking.
