    Sorry.....I thought you had invented and made it! I can somehow imagine what it might taste of though!

    Don't be silly, Snadge - I'm seriously non-domesticated! However, I have a good imagination and carrot, orange and ginger curd sounds delicious.

    Did the pineapple and jalapeno pickled eggs this evening. I'll give it a week, give them a try, and if I like, I will do a few more jars and hope the family like.

    Bought some largish preserving jars from Poundland with coloured tops big enough for six eggs. Put the lid on the pickles, wired it down and turned jar upside down to mix ingredients. Pickle juice ran out! I'm sure preserving jars are supposed to seal the lid?

    The pineapple,Jalapeno pickled eggs are a big improvement on normal pickled eggs and I will be making another half a dozen for myself as I have eaten the last lot already.

    They taste wonderful!

    Alas, i will not be giving any to the in-laws in their hamper as they look disgusting!
