Wood fired bread....

Edibles Home and Garden

I had a wonderful Sunday and started the day by indulging in a spot of kneading on the kitchen table…
You know, I dont think theres anything nicer than making bread (even knitting… and thats saying something!)…
The entire table of tea time delights was all cooked in my trusty Rayburn. I made 3 loaves, half of which disappeared in about 15 minutes (the children turned into a locust like swarm, moving across the plates of goodies at alarming speed….), there were also plates of tarts filled with my homemade peach jam from last summer, fresh fruity scones and ginger and sultana buns.
I LOVE this stove, it seems to be able to do everything, except, and this is a big except, wash the dishes… I forgive it though because the bread tasted sooooo good. I like the idea that I can cook in the residue heat in the oven while its heating the water, drying my washing and making all the radiators hot. Highly recommended!!

Last words: What a stunning day! The morning walk was beautiful, accompanied by two tiddlywinks and our chocolate drop Dartmoor pony aptly named Cocoa. I saw signs of Spring and the wood ants (we have millions, the size of small hatchbacks) are out in force, so Daffy down dillys and bluebells are just around the corner…..
