Re: Bread Making.

Once overproved you can't really do anything about it. yep :roll: I did try to bake the first batch but it was the yeasty brick that Julie talked about... My second attempt was much much better - a little sweet for my taste but getting the routine down pat is the main thing and then I can play with...

Re: Bread Making.

Tried Julie's recipe for the first time yesterday: 1 - I used brown seeded flour cos it was all I had - not sure if it was 'strong' or not 2 - very excited by the first proving - it was huge an all bubbly 3 - spurred on by all the ex...

Re: 'The Edible Garden' starts at 8pm on BBC 2 on April the 7th

That would be lovely! Can you not store them and then soak them for a day or so when you want to work them? Isn't that what they do with willow? (I've dredged that up from somewhere in the murky depths of my memory so I don't know how accurate it is)

Re: Pope Benedict Speaks

as I understand Catholicism it is forbidden for Catholics to talk to God directly, they must get a priest to do it on their behalf. Hence all the churches, priests, nuns, monks etc here in Ireland.
