Have you had your shroves* yet? We had buckwheat shroves for breakfast – using about one part buckwheat flour and 3 parts all purpose flour, and yoghurt instead of milk. (It’s basically our waffle recipe.) They were really good with the intensely apricotty apricot jam I made on the weekend. Even though one of us (not me) always pours maple syrup over his shroves, it was corroborated that apricot jam works as well. And yet the rest of those shroves (not mine) were eaten with maple syrup poured overtop. But I’m not complaining. It means more apricot jam for me.
