I batch of broodschotel in the oven.

Nice way of using up stale bread. Nice stick to the ribs winter food.

The Dutch cookbook (from just after WWII) has another 3-4 recipes, variations on a theme. Will try them.)

Bread*
Woodside goat curd
capers
slice smoked salmon
poached duck egg

On the side:
dry roasted cherry tomatoes - roasted 1 hour
mushroom-roasted 15 minutes
round pancetta rolled up and dry roasted 15 min
fennel bulb topped with parmesan shavings and dry roasted 15 minutes§

* Bread, more like bread substitute, “wholemeal English muffins” it said on the packet I had to rush out and buy because I had forgotten to buy real sourdough bread yesterday.

§ Will try roasting that for 30 minutes next time.


And I had a mandarin after. Love mandarins. Have a tree but it bears sour fruit. Maybe good for preserving? Hmmm. Will prune the fuckers out of it, I think, throw a bag of pigshit around it, might get a decent crop next winter.

Not roasting dried tomatoes!

I drank that way back in the 60s & 70s.

It never was made with cider apples tho: ciders made from cider apples have bitterness from tannins.

There are four types of cider apples:

Bittersweet. Provide tannins and lots of fermentable sugar.

Bittersharp have acidity as well as tannins

Sharps—have acidity, no tannins

Sweet—these are more to dilute a too–bitter cider or one with maybe bit too much tanning or acid.

I have four Yarlington Mill and two Dabinette bittersweets plus Brown Snout bittersweet.

I have Breakwells Seedling as bittersharp and Improved Foxwhelp as a very bittersharp, Sweet Coppin as a sweet cider apple and two King Davids (a cross of Jonathan and either a winesap or Arkansas Black apple.) Granny Smith could add a bit more tartness if need be, Jonathan some complexity, etc. I will plant a winesap and hope that between Granny Smith, winesap and King David I can can some nice vinous, tangy apple juice for drinking and cooking. A crab apple to make pectin jelly.

Early apples don’t store well, will need to sell or dehydrate or juice or make apple butter etc from the early eating apples. Later apples will store fine, especially if I can get that cellar dug.

Don’t overfertilise fruit trees. Try just mulching with native mulch or just compost. Especially in spring. Sheep shit is not a bad manure, low nitrogen high potassium so include a bit of that.

From shit to breakfast!

Toasted the two halves of my one remaining “english muffin” and with it two slices pancetta and a tomato cut into two. Fried a duck egg in one of my silicon rounds. Hmmm need to do a bit more basting of the egg in future, slightly undercooked whites.

Was fine. Not as good as dry roasted tomatoes though! Duck eggs poach really quickly, take a while to fry tho.

Pine mushrooms, make an incredible risotto.

Want to try them in pasta some time soon. Will buy more Thursday—season isn’t long and excess rain etc can see them disappear early.
