Farm Kitchen Challenge Week Two : Spring has Sprung

The Isle of Man Farming Community are setting Howard and Christy a series of cooking challenges over the coming weeks. With recipes suggested by farming families around the Island, each week Howard will be making a main course and Christy will rustle up a pud - using, of course, the best Manx Produce they can find. We hope you'll be inspired to take on the challenge too, if so, please send your photos of your own culinary creations to: latelunch@manxradio.com

Spring has really sprung for the second of our 'Farm Kitchen Challenges'! 

For the main meal, Will Qualtrough from Ballakarran Farm and Mobile Farm Shop challenged Howard to make his family's lamb hotpot:

You can watch the video below to see how Howard got on.

Jane and Nicci Cain from Glendown Farm challenged Christy to make a family recipe Blackberry Crumble AND Blackberry Ripple Ice Cream. Here's the full recipe - ingredients and method - as well as a few words from Will Cain to tell us what's going on right now down on the farm in Port St Mary.

Christy didn't have quite enough fruit to do both the crumble and the ice cream, so she improvised... and reluctant to brave yet another hour long supermarket queue, she decided instead to make use of the abundant offerings of the great Manx gorse bushes near her home! See how she got on using this foraged flavouring below.
