Work is continuing apace with a new mini brochure for Magniwool– this unique underblanket is going to have a lot more focus this year, starting with some adverts in magazines such as Saga. It seems a good idea to separate Magniwool from the rest of the White Cloud products, because it needs a little more explanation and it is a brand name of its own. Thank goodness for email- there has been much sent backwards and forwards between us and the designer and to be able to adjust details on screen is even better. We are hoping to have the finished brochure towards the end of this week and then there will be an almighty effort to send both new brochures out to our existing customers.
Today’s blog has something of a colour green theme, not only does Magniwool have a particular Pantone Green, but we have decided to focus on a small number of lovely Spring Green blankets as the current Special Offer for Spring. Sadly these are now no longer being made so will not be available in the future. Soft, warm, lovely and colourful these are available in Throw size and Single – gorgeous for sofas and bedrooms, all at a huge 30% discount.
Finally, I am including an irresistible recipe which always works and tastes completely delicious:
Put 1/2 cup cold water in a small saucepan and sprinkle over 4tsp gelatine.
Leave for a few minutes to swell. Heat the gelatine and the water, stirring until dissolved, then add 1/2 cup fresh lime juice, 1/4 cup white rum (I use Malibu) and 1 cup plain yoghurt.
Whip 3 egg whites with 1/2 cup sugar until it forms a thick meringue.
Whip 1 cup cream to form soft peaks and then fold the cool gelatine mix into the cream, then add the egg white mixture to carefully combine.
Pour into a large serving dish and sprinkle with lime zest.
The method needs reading through to understand it, it is a bit peculiar, but it really does work and is one of our family’s firm favourites.
