Maybe they're in season somewhere in the world...

I suppose they are 'of' a season...

Good point. What was the japanese salted ice cream like?

And what's a St John's truffle? Does it administer CPR?

January's seasonal berries are...? Euphro, you're going to have to help me out. Though I'll grant there's still keeping apples for the sauce.

'seasonal fruit compote' exists here too, where there is nothing but snow.

but water pudding? water? pudding? traditional?
cultural education required.

I have no idea what traditional English water pudding is either... ice cubes?

should have been cranberries in port, no?
And 'Water pudding'! WTF? Smacks of low-cal nouvelle cuisine gone mad - culinary equivalent of the Emperor's new clothes...

some weird translation of iced dessert (that's what they call it these days when it's not completely true to call it cream i think) I would assume?

The saltwater ice cream was delicious and reminded me of some sorts of toffee that I have had.

I'd never come across water pudding either, but it seems to be some sort of boiled or steamed custard :)

The only winter fruiting thing that I can think of straight away is the snowberry but that is poisonous to humans. A quick search brings up this; I'd forgotten holly, of course, and ivy, for that matter, neither of which is edible.

winter's rubbish for fruit.

Euphro says:

Oh yes, OJ, there was nothing special about the truffles; they weren't even homemade, but just some shop-bought ones on a plate.

they give you the heart attack.

OJ says:

So, deadly berries followed by a heart attack on a plate.

Well it's edgy eating for sure!

Water pudding - an old English recipe made from water (of course), eggs, sugar and lemon. Bit of a cross between a custard and a soufflee and not particularly diet friendly having about 250 calories per portion.

Would anyone have the receipe for the ice cream and/or water pudding?
