Once a year

Standard

the ugly, bitter Seville oranges are available.  Once a year, I have the chance to make Seville curd.  sevilleBought lemon curds – I’d as soon eat Vaseline.  As for Seville curd, I don’t think you can buy it at all; but anyone who can stir a saucepan can make this superior comestible.

The kitchen now reeks with the warring smells of onion and bitter orange.  The pan in the background is making French onion soup.
