|Glad to see the back of it!|
and hoped that sunday would be the same. Fat chance of that, I have Sally's bread to start, including Spelt Ciabatta, which involves sourdough starters, natural yogurt and pre-ferments. Also I wanted to start Elderflower wine and Vinegar, and cook a ham hock in marmalade for lunch.
So I walked the dogs early, and started at 7am with the Spelt pre-ferment for the Ciabatta.
I had already fed the sourdoughs, ready to make dough after lunch.
I was in the garden, picking elderflower, when I had a look at the fruit trees/bushes and the roses. All of them are showing promise,
So while the water was boiling for the wine, I infused the elderflower with white wine vinegar, it will take a couple of weeks, and will need stiring every day. I can then bottle it for salad dressings.
About a year ago, I started saving the dregs of home made wine in a container, intending to let it feremnt into vinegar.
I aquired a mother, threw it all together and forget all about it, until today, when I was looking for some oil, it had developed nicely, and I decanted a bottle, it tastes good, and will liven up salads.
Now the Ham hock,
