Claire went Waitrose-wards on Friday and came back with a duck for £8. She thinks that they probably had a job-lot to sell. Therefore, Saturday was our alternative to a Sunday Roast, and required something fruity, heavy and red. Elderberry was the only possible flavour and went perfectly. Duck, I think is my favourite meat and we opened a jar of gooseberry ketchup to go with it.
After the meal Claire retired to bed to read and I watched Mapp & Lucia, which is a wonderful adaptation of the book. Miranda Richardson is superb.
Claire writes: The last glass was distinctly on the lumpy and chewy side.
