    I love the way the French do yoghurt in little glass pots. Whenever I holiday in France I have a stack of empty ones ready to pack to bring home and never enough room in my suitcase.

    Being a bag lady at the moment, I’m developing a similar pile of empty pots that travels round from house to house with me! What do you use yours for, Barbara?

  3. Barbara says:

    If I ever managed to bring any home I would use them for serving any number of desserts – mousse, jellies, custards, home made yoghurt.

    Well, if I ever manage to find a place to live, I’ll have some ideas! They are cute, aren’t they? Just the perfect size for a single helping!

    Mmmn, I’ll have to look out for those but I suspect that the jams are more likely here than the chilled desserts! But that sounds a whole lot better than my supermarket’s version, which is packed with gelatin, stablilizers and gums!

  6. Caroline says:

    I was amazed to see that the ingredients didn’t include any of the nasties that you mentioned, Plum. I don’t know how easy they’ll be to find in Australia, though, I’ve only come across them in one supermarket chain in Ireland!

    Working my way through a jar of their bitter orange marmalade at the moment…mmmmm….
