Bread…

I have spent the weekend baking bread. Yesterday I baked a country malt loaf and binned it as it had the density of a black hole. Today I decided to do another malted loaf, the result is the ball-shaped one above, and I also made a sourdough loaf, on the right. If I am truthful,... Continue Reading →

Starter success…

So far, so good. This is 12 hours after the first feeding, near trebled in size, lots of bubbles. This morning, day three I gave it its second feeding and left it in the warmth of the kitchen, it is rising which is great. Hopefully, by the weekend, I will be able to bake some... Continue Reading →

A walk in the park…

We decided to take the dogs to Lurgan Park for a wander around the 56-acre lake this morning. Originally owned Baron Lurgan aka The Brownlow Family is situated next to Brownlow House aka Lurgan Castle. Whilst it was a very pleasant walk, the ground was still saturated from the last three weeks of constant rain.... Continue Reading →
