So, this is my next attempt to bake an Einkorn bread.

Seeing that I have managed to * run * from baking breads from scratch so far in my life, I thankfully do not have to unlearn too much in terms of the characteristics of Einkorn, in comparison to modern wheat.

Apparently Einkorn behaves very differently to modern wheat in the preparing and baking process. For starters, Einkorn does not like to be over processed and kneaded.

This recipe I like to share with people who are, like me, beginner bakers, and would like a relatively quick and simple every-day bread.

This bread is quite dense and slightly heavy.

I just added some onions and Parmesan cheese, which totally optional!

There are times, especially during the cold winter months, when we all hanker after a chunky hearty filling soup that bursts with flavours, … and make it hot and spicy, like I did, or tone down the heat to your liking.

It’s well worth the little effort to create such a soup. It is filling and satisfying, and even delights guests!

Apart from the sausages plus chorizo you may well have the ingredients already in the kitchen, or adapt them to what you have.

I love finely chopped soft fresh herbs, such as parsley in my cooking, but larger and woodier herbs and spices are better in a cook bag. On the left is a recent picture I have taken that shows how the rosemary herbs ‘leaves’ come off the stems and are definitely in the ways of eating enjoyment.

The same applies to cardamon seeds, cloves, bay leaves, cinnamon bark, orange peel, star aniseed, woody lemongrass stalks, etc.

So, a good little trick is to get some sturdy cook bags made from re-usable cheesecloth or similar material.

A good stock or bone broth is essential for a great base for an amazing nutritious soup, gravies, casseroles, etc.

Plus, it’s so simple to make!

Sydney Eats – The Grounds of Alexandria

Salmon without the Bagel – photo by Geli

 

Strolling around Sydney’s “The Grounds
of Alexandria” is a full-on sensory experience …

 

Strolling around The Grounds with my family and grandkids, certainly was a very very pleasurable experience.

Yummy smells waft about, lush flower stalls, people sell their wares on small stands as one walks by. The little kids love a tiny animal touch farm, and then there is the garden “bursting with things to see, opening into a courtyard festooned with grapevines, florals, vegetables, herbs and greenery.

An ever evolving and welcoming space injected with life for guests to explore”.

Then there are the alluring side stalls and carts filled with delectable sweet temptations.

Loads of various different restaurants offering their mouth watering dishes … making it tough to choose!

The above Salmon without the bagel was my choice at one of the eateries.

Old Family Recipes

Posted by: | Comments (0)

 

Excited about offering you some of my heritage cookery gems. As mentioned in the “About” section this website / blog started it’s life as a pure family communication help for when my two children ‘flew the nest’ but missed home cooking, and it was just simpler to create a blog for them to refer to.

So, I dug out some of my grandmother’s and mother’s recipe books and scribbled notes. Considering that my grandmother was born during the latter part of the 19th century (18??), her books and notes are pretty old and also the print is in old German.

The Davidis-Holle was printed in 1909. I added into the picture an apple recipe she wrote the year I was born 1953. There are plenty of other books and notes from my mother with handed down recipes.

Wheatgrass – Growing & Juicing

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Not any old grass! Wheatgrass is off the charts on the nutrition scale!

Depending on where you live, getting hold of trays full of grown wheatgrass from your local health food supplier, or bottled wheatgrass juice, can either be difficult or at the least very expensive.

I find, just clearing some space on the windowsill in my kitchen does the trick … and you can almost watch wheatgrass grow.
