Make pasta, and dry it. It'll be good, stored in an airtight container, for weeks if not longer.

I wouldn't have thought of that, it should be good in a couple of months when the lemons on the tree have ripened. I have never made it before, are there any pitfalls to avoid?

no idea about the lemon curd and my mum's working today so i can't ask her...


as for eggs, lemon or custard tarts.they take about 10 eggs each.

once your pastry is cooked, turn the oven down for a little while or the eggs curdle.

How about making ice-cream? Make up a custard using the eggs, mix in your favourite flavouring and freeze.

Hi again
I've just remembered that someone gave me this book for my birthday
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw/10 ... +roux+eggs

Michel Roux - Eggs. It's got some great recipes although the one for boiled eggs is quite complicated :lol:

Daube Dizef is basically a variation on the egg curry front- it's basically a chillied tomato sauce with potatoes and tinned peas in as well as whole eggs. You're suppose to fry the eggs after boiling them, but I don't bother usually. I think it's from Sri Lanka or Mauritius originally.

Otherwise-

meringues and mayonnaise to use up whites and yolks

Floating Islands (Isles flottant- poached meringue in egg custard sauce, so same idea as above)

creme caramel

cakes

pancakes (we love american style ones for breakfast at weekends. Add polenta for some of the flour to make Johnnycakes. All good with jam, honey, maple syrup and/or bacon!) All pancakes freeze well.

Egg mornay (did someone say that? boiled eggs with cheese sauce over.

Make and freeze tortilla- small ones or slices are good for packed lunches.

Pasta Carbonara- Boil some pasta and then fry bacon bits plus onion and/or garlic if you like in a little oil.( I sometimes do a 'vege' version with peas instead, but I don't fry them, just the onion etc and cook the peas with the pasta. I also use up bits of other cooked meat- left over roast, ham etc) Add some white wine/vermouth or similar to whatever you're frying and bubble for a few minutes until it's syrupy. (That's optional, but it is nice) Add a little butter and remove from the heat. Beat up approx 1 egg per person (or 1 whole egg plus the other yolks. Use the whites for meringue or freeze) with some grated parmesan, black pepper and grated nutmeg. Mix drained cooked pasta with bacon etc and mix in a hot pan (off the heat). Add egg mix and stir well for a minute or too. Serve. I don't add cream as it makes it more expensive and not a store cupboard dineer :lol:

swap with people for something else

You can freeze egg whites in bags. I think if you beat them together you can freeze whole eggs too.
