Raw blueberry lavender cheese cake

by Bonnie Pockley

This morning there was ice on the trikes and an unforgiving frost that had damaged our pumpkins. Although the sun came out later and it turned into a beautiful day, we resolved to spend a little of it indoors in the kitchen, cooking up some treats. For lunch we made a slow cooked chickpea spinach curry and after putting a big chicken soup on the stove for dinner, we cut up some fresh plums to serve with this  – a little raw blueberry lavender cheese cake.
