Several of you have asked how we made these beauties on here, and on twitter, and as they have only improved with time I thought it only right to share the recipe with you. I have it in Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstalls family cookbook but he also did it in his 'autumn' tv series last year. I didn't add the beetroot (they were a tv addition for colour - we used food colouring) but theres no reason why you shouldn't. heres where to find the recipe. Its great fun, and it was in a book designed to be used by children with adult supervision so great for a rainy day.
p.s. when it says oil the knife, DO oil the knife. this mixture is like glue.
