A Good Friday

Productive day today - cooked up a big batch of our staple tomato pasta sauce. It used up just over 2kg of my tomatoes, some of which were beginning to look a bit tired, so it was good not to waste them. Also picked about 350g raspberries, and planted up my garlic in one of the front beds. I must show you some pictures of the front yard's transformation. Perhaps tomorrow ...

  1. Here's a great recipe for rusks if you wish to try it
    1kg self raising flour 200 ml sugar, 5ml baking powder, 190 gr butter (melted), 10gr ml salt, 500gr buttermilk, 2 eggs. Sift dry ingredients together. Beat eggs, buttermilk and sugar, blend with dry ingredients, knead dough lightly and then add butter bit by bit while kneading. Form balls and pack in a bread pan. Bake in oven 180 for 50 mins, turn out, tear apart and dry in a warm oven.
