I thought it was high time I joined the party over at Mactweets and entered their latest macaron challenge. This month the theme is fruit, in celebration of the rich pickings on offer in this strange month of June. Last week I made my first ever batch of jam and this challenge presented a good opportunity to use it on something other than the kids’ toast. The jam is gooseberry and was made using an old Mrs Beeton recipe as dictated over the phone by my mother. It’s a little runny, but it tastes good and works well with elderflower buttercream in a pretty green macaron.
