I also have some satsumas that are really too sour for dd or myself to eat raw and was wondering if I could make an orange(substitute satsumas!)cake or something similar or whether to add them to the rhubarb in something?
I don't know if this is the right place to ask but any ideas would be really appreciated, thanks.

Debts- CC's- V-775, F-1253.10, BC-3291.80, T-1429.08. Total-6748.98. All 0%. Aim- to pay £200 per month.
Did a big shop of £125 on Saturday due to a family gathering which was great. Lots of cheese left over and some chilli and triffle. Lots in so OK cooking for family. Another sort of gathering next weekend which needs to be a bit 'posh'. I'm hoping it gets cancelled.
Just to update - the Blackberry Bake was lovely and yummy
1st fair on 13/4/14 :j
Also got some of the cheese on offer at £1.29 which has gone into the freezer, half kilo of lovely big vine tomatoes, 25p (had some for tea, they are very tasty) and some plums, £1.00 plus couple of other bits I needed, total £6.72.
I would like to join you, please put me down for £200 for August Thanks
Have also made a quiche today and a lemon meringue pie for tomorrow. I will post the quiche recipe when I have a moment as it is a good one! Have also been enjoying homemade bread again thanks to Lollyfin!
Have updated my signature and have about £43 left till 28th - I am still hopeful of coming in on target - only one more 'big shop' to go and I don't need any meat.
Well house is clean and tidy ready for inspection tomorrow! Hope everyone is ok - i think I deserve and early night!
