Extract from the Googlenoks of Peppercorn Green

A SPECIAL DAY IN THE SHIRE Cathy Fern had changed her pinny twice already so had Buttercup and Felicity; they hadn’t stopped since Tommy had come round singing his message. As soon as Barnaby had arrived back with the food it was non- stop cutting, peeling and crying. Kristine had volunteered to peel and chop the onions; she had stood at the table crying for over an hour, with Daniel bringing in cold flannels to put on her eyes. Buttercup must have squeezed a hundred oranges and lemons. Then she had to cut up all the peel and put it in the huge cauldron with the juice and sugar. “ If you had your black coat and a pointed hat on Buttercup.” Daniel said laughing, “ You could be mistaken for a witch.” Buttercup smiled at Daniel and carried on stirring the pot to make sure all the sugar was dissolved. Then it was left to simmer for an hour, with Buttercup stirring it every twenty minutes. Cathy also reckoned she looked like one of the witches in a fairy tale book but didn’t say anything. Queen Pepper had arrived back with Barnaby and immediately vanished into the conservatory to make her candy floss. Not only was it rainbow coloured candy floss made up of the seven colors of the rainbow; each colour had its own special flavor. The green was mint, the red tasted of wild strawberries, whilst the orange and lemon tasted just like the real fruit. But it was the violet, blue and indigo that made people wonder if she had a magic spell. The indigo tasted of iced elderberry wine, the violet was like a succulent sherbet fountain and the blue, well you name your own favourite fruit and that's what it tasted of. If you loved pomegranates then it tasted like pomegranates or if your fancy was for a knicker- bocker glory, then that is what you felt as the floss melted in your mouth. King Pepper said the queen had the recipe handed down to her from her grandmother, and he reckoned his grandfather always referred to her as an old witch, so maybe that was why it was so magic. Kayleigh Willowherb had asked her father to drop her off at the castle as he passed by on his way to the stadium to deliver the sand. She had really come to call for the Princess, but had ended up helping out in the kitchen. Cathy had given her all the bread rolls and baps to cut and butter, then she had to put them all back in the trays that Mr. Barleycorn had left. She could never remember seeing so much bread in her life before. Cathy had been busy making bread as well, only two long rolls, but no one was allowed to know what they were for. She had also made two big pots of stew or something, put lids on them and put them on the range. “ These won’t need any looking after.” She said and that was that, there they sat bubbling away all morning. Felicity had the boring task of pouring bottles of tomato sauce into large plastic dishes and putting lids on them when they were full up. "It will be a lot easier to use a spoon than end up with tomato sauce on everything.” Buttercup said after she had shook a bottle and ended up with most of it in her hair. Minnie and Martha were having great fun, Cathy had made some really sticky toffee and as Minnie stuck the sticks in the apples so Martha was dipping them in the toffee it seemed like there was more toffee on the twins than on the apples. “ You two are going to need a good scrub before you get to the stadium this afternoon, just look at the state of your shirts.” Cathy said shaking her head. Buttercup had just finished slicing the last of the tomatoes as Queen Pepper arrived back from making her candyfloss. “ Time for those bacon butties I think,” she said pinching a slice of tomato off the plate. Everyone looked up at the clock. “ Goodness me its half past twelve already.” Cathy said wiping her hands on her apron. “ I’ll just get Daniel and Barnaby to take some of these trays through to the parlour and then I’ll put the bacon on.” “ Did I hear the word bacon”? King Pepper said as he came through the kitchen door. “ How are you all getting on, nearly finished.” “ Yes its almost done, just a few finishing touches here and there and we’ll be ready to take it all to the stadium.” Cathy said turning the bacon over as she talked. In no time at all they were all sat round the table tucking into their dinner. “ I never realised I was so hungry,” King Pepper said as he finished off the last bacon sandwich. Princess Cornflower and Ann could smell the bacon cooking as they cycled up towards the castle. They had met up with Jody and Heledd as they were leaving the stadium.
