It's pretty cold most days. A little sunshine makes a huge difference, as the hoophouse heats up and is lovely.
In an effort to warm up the house, egg custards are baked in the oven. In a water bath, egg yolks, cream and a bit of sugar are combined and go into the oven for a good while. It turns out that unlike our house, the oven is superinsulated and not much heat migrates to the house. That's ok, we will keep making and eating. Farmers need calorie rich food to get work done in this cold weather.
