Lime Flower Tea, Lime Basil, Creme Caramel

As I had recommended lime flower tea, I thought I should buy some myself and drink it, which I did with pleasure. It was the memory of madeleine cakes dunked in a tisane made from lime flowers that got Marcel Proust started in A La Recherche du Temps Perdu.

Lime Basil is now in leaf. I had never grown it before. It tastes as it sounds - an aromatic mix of sweet basil and lime - the citrus this time.

Preparing creme caramel to be eaten with peaches poached in white wine.
