  • Fig Jam
    Until a couple of years ago, I'd never come across anyone with a fig tree. Recently, I've met two people growing them locally. This year's been a good one for them and I'v
  • North Staffordshire or Derbyshire Oatcakes
    It's quite amazing how certain foods are so local, that even though you live in the County bordering those where they're made, you've managed to get to 56 years old withou
  • Nettle Soup
    Mention something for nothing and my eyes generally light up - that's how I came to be making nettle soup. The first thing to do is persuade someone to pick a bowl of youn
  • More Soup!
    What, more soup! You must think that we've got no teeth around here and that we live on soup! Well, this time it's mushroom, and specifically the tail end of the tray that
  • Tomato Soup a.k.a. Ghost's Blood!
    Well that's crept up on me without me noticing! It's Halloween on Monday: that special day when little kids can 'mug' old people with impunity! At this point, 'proper' blo
  • If you go down to the woods...
    If you go down to the woods... ...it's likely that you'll find some wild garlic. Or, if you've a good friend who house-sits where there's a woodland garden, you may be luc
  • Onion Bhajis and Tamarind Chutney
    Another buffet favourite that can be made for pennies. Onion Bhajis 8 Tablesp Gram flour (sieved) 1 Tablesp Rice flour (or SR Flour) ½ Tablesp Cumin powder ½ Tablesp Coria
  • Lentils and spinach
    It could be said that I lack a love of lentils. I guess, like most things, it's what you're brought up with that decides our preferences in later life. Now, don't get me w
  • Roast Chickpeas
    Here's a quick healthy snack for all you body-conscious guys out there! Heat the oven to 200°C. Drain, wash & dry a can of chickpeas and mix with a few drops of oil, a cou
  • Further Adventures with Ciabatta
    Last year I started playing with higher hydration doughs and made a not particularly good ciabatta . At the time I didn't experiment further, so I thought I'd better give
  • Falafel and Pita Bread
    I make no claims as to the authenticity of this recipe - 'cos I made it up! It's an amalgamation of a few I've seen online over the last year, or so. Falafel 300gm Dried c
  • Pretzels
    Initially, I wasn't that pleased with these pretzels, thinking that the outside should be more crispy and the centre less dense, but then Hannah, my daughter who went to B
  • Savoury Biscuits
    84 pence for a packet of water biscuits; they're having a laugh! I couldn't believe it when I looked in the supermarket - 84 pence! After all they're only flour, oil, salt
  • Vegetable Soup
    You know, there are some days when you just can't be bothered. Today was one of them. Pauline seems to have got a 'bug' and I think I'm 'sickening' for it so neither of us
  • Rhubarb Chutney
    Dad brought me some rhubarb earlier in the year and I made 'rhubarb turnovers' with it, using the rough puff pastry that I have written about before. The only trouble is t
  • American Style Mustard
    I'm have a love/hate relationship with mustard. It's one of those things that I have phases of eating. A while back it was just Coleman's Mustard Powder mixed with a littl
  • Our Daily Bread
    If the number of people posting 'Wanted' requests on Freecycle is anything to go by, there's a lot of interest in bread making at the moment. I'd like to think it's all ab
  • Samosas
    My mate John brought me some samosas to try. They're from a shop on Green Lane Road and are superb. Mind you, the Tamarind dip which accompanied them about blew my brains
  • National Chilli Week - Sweet Chilli Sauce
    Apparently, it's National Chilli Week from 26th November to 3 December 2007. It's a bit of a coincidence really, 'cos on Saturday I experimented with making my own Sweet C
  • Store Cupboard Starters
    Food for four and two more arrive wanting food? It happens to us all sooner or later. Today was my turn. Only thing for it is to conjure up a starter. Today, faced with th

    It's amazing the things that get discussed in my local. If they televised it, people would say it's too daft to be believable! Anyway, the subject of Blackberry vinegar ha
  • Marrow and Apple Chutney
    What do you do when someone gives you a big Marrow and your Dad appears with a bag of Bramley Apples? Y'up it's Marrow and Apple Chutney! This time I thought I'd try to ma
  • Beetroot & Horseradish Pickle
    This recipe started with one of those pub conversations “I'm thinking of making beetroot pickle but I've got this idea to add horseradish to it. I don't know where the ide
  • Blackberry and Apple Jam
    Those of you who read my entry a few days ago entitled What a Plonker! will know that making any preserves and chutneys in this house is a bit of a hit & miss affair. So,
  • Curried Marrow Chutney
    To say that little half-starved eighteen stone nephew, Mickey, likes chutney is like saying dogs like bones. He devours the stuff. A pot will sometimes last him as long as
