I don’t know about yours, but my freezer can be a maddening place. There seem to be containers of half remembered things, and as I have never been one for labels, the contents can be a mystery, until defrosted.
I did find a tub of sweet and sour sauce, probably from the Asian supermarket in Gravesend, and some of the crispier of the Pork that I slow-roasted last Sunday. I added fried onion and pepper to it; it can be warmed in the oven this evening.
In all the excitement of making bread for sale, I’m not making any for ME. Hmmm so today I did a quick sourdough, quite simple really
700g active starter
700g Strong white flour
300ml warm water,20g salt.
The advantage of using more starter than usual is the reduced proving time for the same taste.
I have a lot to do in the garden, but am a bit nervous about putting runner beans, tomatoes etc. out, in case there are more cold nights. But they are all ready to go.
I found a recipe for making your own clotted cream, maybe I’ll have a go, but until then I need some for Yvonne’s birthday cake, I have to make it without her spotting what I’m up to, it will be a puff pastry jam and cream slice, with chocolate topping (maybe) I guess I’ll have to do it on her birthday, early in the morning. Naomi and Eamon will be here but they won’t get up early.
Devon show tomorrow, I went last year and it rained all day, Yvonne stayed here as she had hurt her ankle, hopefully I will be a good day for both of us.
