    Today I will - cook some strips of orange peel without pith, in orange juice & a bit of sugar - add some pear segments & cook a bit more - add the rest of the rhubarb stalks & cook just a little more - to make a compote for cereal.

    I can make custard from scratch /eggs etc... -
    But don't be crazy - I used custard powder from a packet purchased at the S/mart - it works just fine.
