Some Cooking

Quite a lot has happened since i last posted but then since that was around 2 weeks ago you would hope so…

Lime Pickle

The lime pickle is now ready. I added the rest of the ingredients last weekend and now have 2 enormous jars of lime pickle. I’m going to give one away to my brother and his girlfriend who love curry.

Cheese

Homemade Queso Blanco, again from my favourite book: Artisan Cheesemaking at Home. I think the texture is softer than it should be but it was delicious. A very fresh, ‘uncheesy’ taste and perfect for salads. I used it in a quinoa beetroot salad, and also grilled with some onion marmalade on toast.

 

 

 

Bread

I’m managing to make bread every few days now. I’ve made some River Cottage Soft Rolls a no-knead sourdough wholemeal loaf with seeds, and another batch of crumpets.

Fresh Prince Cake

I mean, this is just amazing…Joe’s birthday at work, Helen’s newfound passion for baking and WIll Smith. What a combination!
