emily just suggested earl grey tea for our new milk chocolate - it was an old favourite in our fresh dark truffles at limerick farmer's market. it also sold brilliantly at sheridan's cheesemonger's in galway in our small bars with star confetti days. it has been done before by other chocolate companies but is still quite rare in a solid bar and so good to eat. another contender?
and while on the subject of tea, i learnt this week that you should make fresh mint tea in a teapot or cover the cup for a few minutes with a saucer or small plate. this keeps the oils from escaping and makes the infusion even better. i love it. i also love mojito's. and loads of mint chopped in a salad of fresh leaves, grated lemon zest and king prawns fried in chilli, butter and garlic. how come my mint never takes over the garden as warned on the packet?
