Keeping it simple...


Maria and I are separated, as we all are, at the moment. Our get togethers are limited to rubbish mobile signals and lots of messaging. So we’re going to keep things simple, and dish you up a dessert that’s so quick, and so delicious.

I first tried this in Alberic when I visited with Maria in January.

M: Ah yes, we celebrate St Antonio, with the fires, and the bakers making Coca de cansala y longaniza – flat bread with sausages and belly pork.

H: We had a lovely meal with your niece…

M: Nieves, yes my niece, she is lovely…

H: For dessert we had those delicious oranges, d’you remember? So simple. Nieves peeled them, taking all the pith off as well, then what did she put over them?

M: Just a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

H: Is that all? I could’ve eaten them all night!

M: You did!

H: Haha!


Simple, easy desert

Fresh oranges, drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon. Full of vitamin C!

We'd love to see pics of you trying out this healthy, delicious desert, send us photos if you have time. We'll leave you of some pics from the celebrations for St Antonio in Alberic earlier this year. Looking forward to the happy times we can all share together soon.


Keep well, keep safe everyone
